Amid calls for his recusal, Special Counsel Robert Mueller filed his first charges in an ongoing probe into Russia interference during the 2016 presidential election.
What began as a wild conspiracy theory of the radical left was soon turned into a “fishing expedition” by the appointment of Mueller, who has since used his investigation in a myriad of disturbing ways. At one point earlier in the investigation, rumors were swirling that the former FBI director was attempting to exploit his investigation in order to rummage through President Trump’s tax returns – a sore subject constantly being aggravated by the democrats during the 2016 election.
On Friday Mueller took the logical, yet terrifying, next step in his investigation by filing yet-unknown charges against yet-unknown persons in the case.
“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.“On Friday, top lawyers who are helping to lead the Mueller probe, including veteran prosecutor Andrew Weissmann, were seen entering the court room at the DC federal court where the grand jury meets to hear testimony in the Russia investigation.“Reporters present saw a flurry of activity at the grand jury room, but officials made no announcements.“Mueller is authorized to investigate ‘any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation,’ according to Rosenstein’s order.”
