President Donald Trump has been fueling expectations that some of the federal investigators in the Russia probe will face prison time, according to Politico.

“This was treason,” Trump recently said during a Fox News Interview with Sean Hannity. “This was high crimes.  This was everything as bad a definition as you want to come up with. This should never be allowed to happen in our country again.”

And Trump told Hannity he’s given Attorney General William Barr “total release” to probe the roots of the Russia probe.

But Politico noted that legal experts, including some sympathetic to Trump, are playing down their expectations.

“What I think is going to happen is nobody is going to be charged with any criminal activity,” said Jon Sale, a former assistant U.S. attorney and a longtime friend of Rudy Giuliani, a personal attorney to the president.

He believes ongoing Justice Department probes will lead to procedural reforms as they relate to potential future probes of presidential candidates, according to Politico.

One of the probes is being directed by Inspector General Michael Horowitz and the other is being overseen by U.S. Attorney John Durham of Connecticut.

Horowitz said in June his probe was nearing completion. He noted “virtually all of the information we have obtained” has a classified stamp on it.

Durham has remained silent about his work.
