Grand jury approves first charges over alleged Russian Federation meddling in U.S. election

National Security Expert Mueller Will Deliver On Trump Russia Investigation Before Thanksgiving

A federal grand jury on Friday approved the first charges in the investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election, a source briefed on the matter told Reuters. We don't know yet who has been charged or what the charges are; the outlet says they're sealed under an order from a federal judge.

Speculation has run rampant on news networks an social media as to what the charges are and whom they are against, with reports that someone could be taken into custody early as Monday.

Mueller is investigating alleged meddling by Russia in the 2016 US Presidential election and whether anyone connected to the Trump administration colluded with the Russian government.

The interior minister's advisor, Zoryan Shkiryak, said political analyst Vitaliy Byala was also injured in the blast. The Kremlin had accused the couple of trying to assassinate Putin in 2012.

In addition to the possibility of collusion, Mueller and his team have focused their investigation into obstruction on behalf of President Trump, who fired former FBI director James Comey, who once led the Russian Federation investigation.

In addition to Mueller's probe, three congressional committees are conducting their own investigations into possible Russian influence on the election.

The Kremlin has denied the allegations.

Mueller is a former prosecutor and served as Federal Bureau of Investigation director from 2001 to 2013. It wasn't immediately clear, for example, who is being charged and what crimes were allegedly committed.

Mueller was appointed as the special counsel in May.

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 past year. It also came after weeks of questions about the Justice Department's independence from the White House. NBC News later confirmed reports of a Monday indictment.
