First Charges Filed in Mueller's Investigation

First Charges Filed in Mueller's Investigation

The first charges have been filed in Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

The charges are still sealed under orders from a federal judge.

But that did not stop social media from hypothesizing on who charges could be coming against.

Plans were prepared Friday for anyone charged to be taken into custody as soon as Monday, sources told CNN.

Peter Carr, a spokesman in the special counsel's office, declined to comment. NBC News later confirmed reports of a Monday indictment. Donald Trump, Jr., oldest son of the president, also attended the meeting.

The allegation led to speculation that president might have obstructed justice by attempting to influence the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe.

An arrest is believed to be imminent in the investigation into Russian meddling in the U.S. election.

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.

At the time of Mueller's appointment, the White House issued a statement in which Trump said: "As I have stated many times, a thorough investigation will confirm what we already know - there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity.

"It is now commonly agreed, after many months of COSTLY looking, that there was NO collusion between Russian Federation and Trump".

Facebook had recently revealed that for just $100,000, apparent Russia-linked buyers placed some 3,000 advertisements on its pages past year that appeared aimed at influencing the election.
