Michael Moore's top wish for 2019 is to see members of the Trump family 'in orange jumpsuits'

Documentary filmmaker and staunch Trump critic Michael Moore revealed his top New Year's wish for 2019 saying that he wants to see President Donald Trump's family members behind bars. Moore made the revelation while appearing on MSNBC's 'All In With Chris Hayes' on Friday night.
The filmmaker said that his top hope for 2019 is to see "as many members of the Trump family in orange jumpsuits as possible. It's really the wrong way to end such a festive time of the year with such animosity toward those who would do wrong to this country, but yes."
Moore and Heyes, during the segment, also speculated that President Trump's eldest son Donald Trump Jr and his son-in-law and senior White House aide Jared Kushner could be targets for indictment by special counsel Robert Mueller. Trump Jr, earlier this month, reportedly told his friends that he was afraid Mueller would make him his next target. Mueller is leading an investigation into a possible Russia-Trump campaign collusion to influence the 2016 presidential elections.
The probe, which has already targeted four former advisers to the US President, may rope in Trump Jr now. The four former Trump advisers — George Papadopoulos, Paul Manafort, Rick Gates and Michael Flynn — have all been indicted by Mueller.
Reports state that Trump Jr is now worried that he may face indictment over false statement he made to the FBI and to Congress. The president's son, earlier this year, had admitted that he had met with Russian officials who promised "dirt" on his father's presidential rival in the 2016 elections, Hillary Clinton.
President Trump's critics have also insisted that Kushner could also be in legal jeopardy as he was also present for the infamous meeting with Russian officials at Trump Tower. Reports state that Kushner's contacts with Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Israel are also reportedly under scrutiny by Mueller.
Moore, however, believes that Trump himself would not be indicted in the probe. "Here's probably what won't happen, especially New Yorkers know this because Trump got away with everything for like 40 years, that streak shouldn't end this year, more than likely, because I think Trump has always been careful to not be in the room when the crime is being committed. I think he's very canny," he said.
"If something's going to happen in a room with Russians or others that could find him indicted, I think more than likely—because remember he doesn't drink, he doesn't do drugs, he is of his own faculties—he made sure that he was not in the room," Moore added.
