Robert Mueller’s witch hunt against President Trump just shot to the next level.
He’s made a major move against Trump.
And it involves some very bad news.
The first indictment has been handed down and that the individual facing charges could be brought into custody as soon as Monday.
“A federal grand jury in Washington on Friday approved the first charges in the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller, according to sources briefed on the matter.
The charges are still sealed under orders from a federal judge. Plans were prepared Friday for anyone charged to be taken into custody as soon as Monday, the sources said. It is unclear what the charges are.
A spokesman for the special counsel’s office declined to comment. The White House also had no comment, a senior administration official said Saturday morning.
Mueller was appointed in May to lead the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Under the regulations governing special counsel investigations, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who has oversight over the Russia investigation, would have been made aware of any charges before they were taken before the grand jury for approval, according to people familiar with the matter.”
No one knows who is charged or what they are charged with.
Mueller has been investigating figures such as former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn for possible crimes that have nothing to do with the campaign or alleged Russian collusion.
The special counsel could be bringing these charges in an effort to force them to flip on Trump and spill the beans on anyone on the campaign who colluded with Russia.
But that may not work since everyone involved has denied colluding with Russia and no evidence exists to substantiate that conspiracy theory.
