First indictment in Mueller-Russia probe coming Monday: reports
U.S. special investigator Robert Mueller is ready to press the first charges in his investigation, multiple reports say.
On Friday, a federal grand jury approved the indictment, which is to be served on Monday, sources told CNN.
It’s unclear who or how many people will be charged or what the charges are.
Mueller was appointed into the role of special investigator after U.S. President Donald Trump fired former FBI director James Comey.
Mueller is investigating Trump’s campaign’s potential ties to the Kremlin during the 2016 U.S. election. He has also reportedly been looking into Trump’s actions as president, including the firing of Comey.
The former FBI chief was leading the investigation into Trump’s campaign before he was sacked in May.
Trump said earlier in the week, he has not been asked for an interview with Mueller.
In an appearance on Fox Business News on Monday, Trump was asked whether he would speak with the special counsel.
“I don’t know. Nobody’s asked me to do that,” he told the network.
