The indictment from FBI special counsel Robert Mueller's investigative team is "the beginning of the end" of its probe of possible collusion between the campaign of President Donald Trump and Russia, political strategist Jeffrey Lord said Friday.
In an interview on Newsmax TV's "Newsmax Now," Lord, who served as an associate political director in the administration of President Ronald Reagan, said critics of President Donald Trump will, nevertheless, still "try to politicize" the indictment against 13 Russians and three Russian companies accused of interfering in the 2016 election.

"I don't think it will be too much longer" before the investigation ends, Lord said, calling the indictment "the beginning of the end, whatever that end will be . . . but I think there's a need for haste here."
Lord said the Mueller probe "at some point" simply runs "out of gas on this," and declared the latest indictment shows "really, there's no there, there."
"No way in the world [Trump] would be deliberately be collaborating with the Russians in this election," he said, "if for no other reason" — because so many people would have to be involved — that "you'd get caught."
The collaboration suspicion, he added, "is in the process of being actually disproved — and the other side is going to go down hard . . . they're starting to suck air."
