Indictment in Mueller's Russian Federation probe to be served Monday

Grand Jury Approves First Charges in Mueller's Russia Probe, Report Says

Mueller's investigation is taking place under the purview of deputy United States attorney general Rod Rosenstein, since attorney general Jeff Sessions recused himself, due to his involvement with the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.

- A grand jury has approved charges in the Russian Federation influence investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller, according to a CNN report. However, unnamed sources who were reportedly "briefed on the matter" told CNN plans had been put in place Friday to take those charged into custody as early as Monday.

The special counsel's investigation has focused on potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, as well as obstruction of justice by the President, who might have tried to impede the investigation.

Special counsel Robert Mueller was appointed in May to lead the investigation after President Donald Trump fired then-FBI director James Comey. "Is this coincidental? NOT!" the president tweeted. The network reported that charges were sealed under orders from a federal judge. After Comey's dismissal the Justice Department's second-in-command Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller to take the reins as special counsel - a role more independent than a normal prosecutor but still under supervision of the department. Another Trump campaign official has already pleaded guilty to lying to FBI investigators about his contacts with a Russian individual with "substantial connections" with Russian government officials who discussed possessing "dirt" on then-candidate Hillary Clinton in the form of thousands of emails. "I have never been contacted by Mueller's team at all". So the timing of this is pretty predictable, it's just not clear who it's going to be.

Billionaire wealth accelerates faster than global economy
At the current rate of development, Asia is also tipped to overtake the United States in total billionaire wealth within four years.

The probe also is examining possible financial ties between Russian businesses and members of the Trump campaign, and foreign lobbying conducted by former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Sean Hannity, a star Fox News anchor and fervent supporter of the president, has alleged that the federal investigation is a smokescreen meant to mask another scandal involving former Trump rival Hillary Clinton.

News has not confirmed the report.
