First charges filed in Mueller investigation

Details about potential charges in special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russia's interference in the presidential election and possible collusion with President Trump's associates could come this week. He was forced out just 22 days into the new administration, and is also under investigation for misreporting contacts with Russian officials during the presidential race.

"There is so much GUILT by Democrats/Clinton, and now the facts are pouring out".

Trump tweeted that there is Republican "anger" over a failure to investigate Democrats' helping to fund research into possible links between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation that led to an infamous dossier.

Multiple media outlets reported this weekend that Mueller, who is leading the federal investigation into Trump's campaign, will hand down his first indictment on Monday.

They accuse Clinton, then secretary of state, of letting the sale go through in exchange for donations to the Clinton Foundation.

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


'And that is, we know that the Russian government, through intermediaries, was reaching out to the Trump campaign, reaching out to Paul Manafort and others and offering information on Hillary Clinton they thought would help the Trump campaign, and that the campaign was willing and accepted that idea, ' Schiff said.

Manafort was the Trump campaign chairman between May and August of 2016.

Flynn, a retired Army three-star general and former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, served as a senior national security adviser to Trump during the campaign and spoke on his behalf at the Republican National Convention. As far as who leaked the indictment, Rep. Gowdy said it should not be overlooked that someone violated the law by disclosing grand jury material.

An expected indictment Monday from the special counsel probing Russia's meddling in the 2016 election leaves President Donald Trump facing a politically perilous week as his White House juggles unveiling significant tax legislation, announcing its pick for Federal Reserve chair and launching a 12-day-long foreign trip. It also has expanded its focus beyond the original question of collusion with the Russians to whether anyone involved in the Russia investigation has committed some related offense.

Gorka, the former White House official who suggested on Hannity's show on Thursday that Clinton should be tried for treason and executed, reacted to the news by calling for a prosecution of Mueller.

This week, watch not only what Special Counsel Mueller does, but also how Trump responds.
