The investigation, which began past year, is seeking to determine Russia's involvement in the 2016 presidential election, as well as if anyone in Trump's campaign colluded with the Kremlin. It is unknown who has been charged or what the charges are.
A federal grand jury approved the first charges in the investigation of potential meddling by Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to CNN. It prevents the target of an indictment from knowing they're about to be charged and arrested, which limits the risk of defendants destroying evidence or any shenanigans when they are eventually brought in.
CNN also reported someone could be taken into custody by Monday. Rosenstein made the decision to appoint Mueller because Attorney General Jeff Sessions had recused himself from any probe in the Russian Federation investigation.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Friday told reporters it was "a pretty big waste" for the news media to investigate connections between Trump associates and Russian Federation.Читайте также: Amazon Key lets couriers leave packages in your living room
Peter Carr, a spokesman in the special counsel's office, declined to comment.
The president has repeatedly denied potential collusion as "fake news" and a "hoax" perpetuated by Democrats. The appointment came shortly after Trump abruptly fired then-FBI Director James Comey, who testified before Congress that the president pressured him to end the investigation of his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn. Donald Trump, Jr., oldest son of the president, also attended the meeting.
We still have no idea who's getting indicted and what the charges will be at this point.
Flynn was sacked from the administration in February after it was found that he had misled vice president Mike Pence on his dealings with Russian officials.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
