CNN reports that charges have been filed in Robert Mueller’s wide-ranging investigation into President Donald Trump and his campaign and business associates.
The charges, approved by a grand jury in the nation’s capital, are not being revealed publicly at this time, reportedly due to law enforcement’s desire to apprehend the indicted as early as this coming Monday.
It is not known at this time who will be indicted or for what reason. Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort’s home endured a law-enforcement raid pursuant to the investigation, but it is unclear if anything of importance was found.
Democrats, establishment Republicans and the media have consistently failed to produce any evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government during the election.
Mueller is coming under fire for his well-documented role in the Hillary Clinton Uranium One scandal, whereby Clinton and the Obama administration sold 20 percent of America’s uranium to the Russians. Mueller, then FBI director, allegedly ignored evidence of bribery on the part of a Uranium One subsidiary.
Critics believe that Mueller has compromised his impartiality in the case. Additionally, numerous Mueller legal-team members have close ties to the Clintons, including those who actually represented Hillary Clinton during her ongoing email scandal. Those connections could serve as the basis for disbarment proceedings against some of Mueller’s investigators.
