Speaking to Boston Public Radio, national security expert Juliette Kayyem predicts that special counsel Robert Mueller will act against the Trump White House prior to Thanksgiving.

Who is Juliette Kayyem?

According to Wikipedia, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson appointed Kayyem to the Homeland Security Advisory Committee. Prior to this, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano appointed Juliette N. Kayyem Assistant Secretary for Intergovernmental Affairs. She is currently a lecturer at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government.

The pacing of recent news stories signals to her that something is coming.

“I think it is safe to say that before Thanksgiving ... something’s going to drop with Mueller,” she said on Boston Public Radio today. “The pace is too much right now. Every 12 hours we’re now dealing with a piece of this story at a pace we haven’t seen.”

Why is Kayyem confident that Mueller is getting closer to acting against the Trump White House?

Kayyem speculated that the pace of stories critical of Hillary Clinton represents “a recognition by the White House team” that Mueller is getting close to something substantive as a result of his investigation. Kayyem pointed out that Mueller has interviewed former Press Secretary Sean Spicer and former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus. “This is so close to the Oval Office now, if not in the Oval Office, that all of this [dossier news] to me is just background noise to what Mueller is going to deliver,” she said. “This is more than an obstruction charge. There is something big underlying the obstruction.”
