Mueller files first charges in Trump-Russia investigation

Mueller files first charges in Trump-Russia investigation”

The first arrest in the investigation led by United States special counsel Robert Mueller into Russian meddling in last year's presidential election and possible collusion with President Donald Trump's campaign could be made today.

CNN was the first to report on Friday that the grand jury approved charges, citing multiple sources.

Mueller's Special Counsel's Office will make public an indictment on Monday, a US official with firsthand knowledge of the process confirmed to NBC News, without disclosing the name of the target or the nature of the charges.

Mueller, the former director of the FBI, was tasked in May with leading an investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 USA election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

Attorneys from Mueller's office were at the federal courthouse in Washington, D.C., on Friday, including one of his senior prosecutors who specializes in fraud cases. The timing was confirmed by a second source familiar with the matter.

Reached by AFP, both Mr Mueller's office and the U.S. department of justice declined to comment. The Kremlin has denied the allegations. Mueller's team has conducted extensive interviews with former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, former spokesman Sean Spicer and other current and former White House officials. Trump initially said he fired Comey because his leadership of the Federal Bureau of Investigation was inadequate and hurt morale, but in a later interview with NBC he cited "this Russian Federation thing" as his reason.
