A federal grand jury has approved the first charges in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russian meddling investigation, CNN reported Friday night.
The charges are sealed, the report said. Any individual charged will be taken into custody as soon as Monday, sources briefed on the matter told the cable station.
Rumors of some grand jury development had been stoked earlier Friday, after top lawyers involved in Mueller’s probe — including veteran prosecutor Andrew Weissmann, were seen entering the federal courtroom in Washington DC where the panel meets.
The investigation is probing possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, along with possible obstruction of justice by President Trump.
