The author of "Fire and Fury" believes the president and his son-in-law will wind up throwing one another under the bus.

The author of "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" made a prediction regarding the Russia probe over the weekend: President Donald Trump and his son-in-law Jared Kushner will take turns throwing one another under the bus.

According to Michael Wolff, special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation could lead to crisis for the White House well in advance of the 2018 midterms, and an indictment for Kushner could trigger chaos, particularly if the senior adviser rolls on Trump.

Wolff said "there is a pretty good possibility at this point that Jared will be indicted,” according to a report by HuffPost.

“So the more direct question is will Trump throw his son-in-law under the bus, and then the corollary to that is, will his son-in-law throw his father-in-law under the bus?” Wolff said. “And I think the answer to both of those questions is ‘yes.' ”

Following the resignation of White House staff secretary Rob Porter, who failed to gain permanent security clearance due to allegations of spousal abuse, all eyes are on Kushner.

More than a year into the Trump presidency, Kushner continues to hold a temporary security clearance, and changes by chief of staff John Kelly could mean the president's son-in-law will lose his interim clearance status.

Trump has left it up to Kelly to decide on Kushner’s security clearance, creating a point of tension between Kelly and Kushner.

At the London event, Wolff also described Kushner and Ivanka Trump as “the most entitled people on earth” saying they didn’t have any relevant experience to hold the positions they were given by the president.
