First Charges Filed in Trump-Russia Special Counsel Investigation

First Charges Filed in Trump-Russia Special Counsel Investigation

A federal grand jury has approved the first charges as a result of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between Russian Federation and Donald Trump's presidential campaign, CNN reported Friday night.

A federal grand jury approved the charges on Friday but they remain under seal on the orders of a federal judge, CNN reported. It wasn't immediately clear, for example, who is being charged and what crimes were allegedly committed. A person or people could be taken into custody as early as Monday, according to CNN and the Wall Street Journal.

Peter Carr, a spokesperson for Mueller, declined to comment Friday night. Targets of his investigation include former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, among others. In August, Mueller impaneled a Washington, DC, grand jury as part of the investigation.

A bunch of guys have to step up and kind of try to fill that role - and in this case, a bunch of different roles. Hightower made 13 starts last season, accounting for 65 combined tackles, 2.5 sacks and two passes defensed.

While the probe has centered on possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation during the 2016 election, the president's legal team has repeatedly warned Mueller's team against looking into his finances and business interests.

The first criminal charges in special counsel Robert Mueller's Trump-Russia probe are secret for now - but that doesn't necessarily tell us much on its own.

Mr Trump, who was elected president last November, has denied allegations that his campaign colluded with Russian Federation and labelled the investigations as a "witch hunt".
