 article about mueller files first charges in russia probe
Robert Mueller, the special counsel overseeing the Russia investigation, reportedly filed the first criminal charges on Friday, according to CNN. The charges are part of the inquiry into Russia's interference during the 2016 presidential election.

It's currently not known who has been charged exactly or whether there are one or multiple people in the indictment, but according to CNN first arrest could be made on Monday.

When talking about the sealed indictment, a former Justice Department spokesman Matthew Miller said that "No one outside of the Justice Department or the court - including grand jurors, court reporters and such - should know, with the possible exception of the defendant's attorney, who might have been briefed to arrange surrender."

Trump has previously said about the Russia probe that instead of his team, Hillary Clinton should be the real focus of the probe. And that the investigation into his ties to Russia is nothing but a witch hunt. He has always denied any collaboration with Russia during the election, independent of some of the correspondents he and his team has had with Moscow's people as have been revealed by various news sources.
