How would you interpret this sentence? “I know that you were in Mexico,” he said. “We have this information. You worked for a painter in Mexico City, a very well-known Red. I can’t recall his name, but it’s in the files. I came here today to question you about this. In all of this mess, this kind of weather, in North Carolina. I don’t even have chains on the tires.” He sighed. “To question me about working for a painter in Mexico?” “That’s about the extent of it. You could deny it, most of them deny. To begin with. But I’ll be honest with you, it doesn’t usually help.” “Why would I deny it?” “This information alone is reason for dismissing you from your government post. That’s what happens now, if you choose not to deny the associations. In time there may be more. I think you’re probably going to get a McFarland letter.” How would you interpret this sentence: In time there may be more? Does it mean there may be more people dismissed from governments posts? Thanks!

At the present moment, "this information alone is reason for dismissing you from your government post." But "in time there may be more" reasons to dismiss you from you government post.
