Jill Wine Banksthat prosecutor was in the Water gate scandal that brought down the president Richard M. Nixonpredicted that Donald Trump was about to face the music himself in the classified documents scandal now at the center of a federal investigation.

“The case is so strong. You can’t imagine him getting away with this,” she said on MSNBC on Sunday. “I’m wearing a toast pin today because I think it’s toast.”

Wine-Banks spoke amid federal grand jury reports in the case is expected to meet again this week for the first time in a month, days after reports that federal investigators obtained audio of the former president admitting that he had secret documents in his possession.

He too reportedly acknowledged in the recording that those documents had not been released.

Wine-Banks said she believes the grand jury had already heard this recording — and predicted it would be very damaging to Trump.

“There is nothing more compelling than hearing a defendant in a criminal case say words that prove his criminality,” she said. “And these words certainly show that he knew he had not released any documents that he still kept.”

She said Trump’s only real game would be to claim he lied on tape — but said that probably wouldn’t work given all the other evidence against the former president.
