Think President Trump seems rattled now? There may be more to come

Analysis: A series of court filings in the next few weeks may shed light on what Mueller has learned from people who were once in Trump’s inner circle.

If President Donald Trump appears to be rattled by special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation now — and his extraordinary tweets on the subject suggest that he is — just wait.

Over the next few weeks, a series of court filings are due that may shed substantial light on what Mueller has learned from people who once sat in Trump’s inner circle.

 That could happen as soon as Tuesday, when Mueller is scheduled to file a detailed memo in support of the sentencing of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. That memo would include information about any “bad acts” Flynn committed for which he was not charged, and details about his cooperation with the special counsel.

It’s possible that filing will be sealed, which means the public won’t see it until later. But on Friday, another filing is expected that legal experts say probably will not be sealed — a detailed explanation of why Mueller’s office is withdrawing a plea agreement with former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, including the “crimes and lies” Mueller alleges Manafort committed while he purported to be cooperating with the special counsel.
