Grand Jury Approves First Charges in Mueller's Russia Probe, Report Says

  • First Charges Filed in Robert Mueller Investigation

The investigation deals with alleged links between the Kremlin and Trump's campaign, but it also covers the president's finances and family business activities and is seeking to determine if the mogul obstructed justice when in May he fired then-FBI director James Comey, who had been heading the Russian Federation investigation.

Her comment was made in response to a question about Trump's tweeting earlier in the day that it was "commonly agreed" there had been no collusion between his presidential campaign and Russian Federation. The Dems are using this awful (and bad for our country) Witch Hunt for evil politics, but the R's...are now fighting back like never before.

A USA federal grand jury has approved the first charges in an investigation of Russian influence on US elections, according to several major news outlets.

The Associated Press hasn't confirmed the CNN report.

A US official with firsthand knowledge of the process tells N.B.C news that Robert Mueller's office of the special counsel will make public an indictment on Monday.


As of Saturday morning, it was unclear what exactly the charges were or who they'd been filed against as they were sealed under a federal judge's order.

Trump has also criticised an agreement with Russian Federation to mine uranium in the USA signed in 2010, when Clinton was secretary of state under former president Barack Obama, three years after certain individuals linked to the deal had donated money to the Clinton Foundation, although so far no proof of corruption in that case has emerged. Another Trump campaign official has already pleaded guilty to lying to FBI investigators about his contacts with a Russian individual with "substantial connections" with Russian government officials who discussed possessing "dirt" on then-candidate Hillary Clinton in the form of thousands of emails. He took over the probe after Trump in May fired FBI Director James Comey, who started it in July 2016.

Special counsel Robert Mueller has spent months quietly building his case.

In bombshell testimony before Congress the ex-FBI chief said the president pressured him for loyalty and urged him to drop a probe into former national security advisor Michael Flynn. I'll be on @CNNSotu with @jaketapper to discuss.

King said, "Like everyone else in Washington, I'll be watching tomorrow to see what comes out of the Mueller investigation". The special counsel, he predicted, is "here to stay for a while". So the timing of this is pretty predictable, it's just not clear who it's going to be.
