Why the Trump-Russia indictments are being kept secret - for now

CNN is reporting the first charges have been filed in the Robert Mueller investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 usa election.

As of late Friday evening, Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office has declined to respond to questions about the charges, but top lawyers in the probe were seen entering the grand jury room earlier in the day. The timing was confirmed by a second source familiar with the matter.

The special prosecutor's office has been focusing on past foreign lobbying by former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and ex-White House national security adviser Michael Flynn. It is unclear what the charges are. However, CNN's source said that whoever the charges are against may be taken into custody as soon as Monday.

The White House has not officially responded to CNN's report, but the Hill reports that soon after the report was published, President Trump tweeted a video quoting an opinion piece that implies Hillary Clinton colluded with Russian Federation and tried to frame Trump as a "traitor".

US President Donald Trump shakes hands with Russia's President Vladimir Putin during their bilateral meeting at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.

She and her group were the only ones, she says, on a floor with all "Caucasians". Syracuse-born rapper Post Malone replaced her in the top spot this past week.

Later this summer, Mueller convened a federal grand jury in Washington, DC, in the case.

However, in an interview with NBC after Comey's removal, Trump admitted that he was thinking about "this Russian Federation thing" when he chose to fire Comey.

Rosenstein appointed Mueller in May to lead the investigation into Russian meddling after FBI Director James Comey was sacked by President Trump.

Mr Trump, who was elected president last November, has denied allegations that his campaign colluded with Russian Federation and labelled the investigations as a "witch hunt".
