Why Robert Mueller's Russia Investigation Just Became A Lot More Urgent

Why Robert Mueller's Russia Investigation Just Became A Lot More Urgent”

His tweets followed a CNN report that a federal grand jury in Washington has approved the first charges in the criminal investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller. However, unnamed sources who were reportedly "briefed on the matter" told CNN plans had been put in place Friday to take those charged into custody as early as Monday.

Trump, in a series of tweets on Sunday referencing what he called "phony Trump/Russia "collusion" which doesn't exist", accused Democrats of a "witch hunt" and "evil politics", before adding that Republicans were "fighting back like never before".

But with the charges still sealed under orders from a federal judge, it's impossible to know who might be involved. CNN reported that investigators are scrutinizing Trump and his associates' financial ties to Russian Federation.

A spokesman for special counsel Robert Mueller has declined to comment.

The special counsel's investigation has focused on potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, as well as obstruction of justice by the President, who might have tried to impede the investigation. "I don't think [the president's pardon power] is unlimited, and I think it would be highly problematic for the president if it's part of an effort to obstruct justice".

Mueller's team has also examined foreign lobbying conducted by former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, former national security adviser Michael Flynn, and others.

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.

On Wednesday, Republican lawmakers are scheduled to release a tax cut bill being pushed by the GOP lawmakers and Trump.

"I have never seen the president talk about that", Christie said on ABC.

Flynn was sacked from that post in February after misleading Vice President Mike Pence about the extent of his conversations with Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak a year ago.

It is still not known who will receive the indictment or what the charges are. They did not win a contract. The author has made every effort to ensure accuracy of information provided; however, neither Kitco Metals Inc. nor the author can guarantee such accuracy.
