    A federal grand jury in Washington on Friday approved the first charges in the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller, according to sources briefed on the matter.
    The charges are still sealed under orders from a federal judge. Plans were prepared Friday for anyone charged to be taken into custody as soon as Monday, the sources said. It is unclear what the charges are.
    A spokesman for the special counsel's office declined to comment.
    Mueller was appointed in May to lead the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
    Under the regulations governing special counsel investigations, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who has oversight over the Russia investigation, would have been made aware of any charges before they were taken before the grand jury for approval, according to people familiar with the matter.

    Not going to be as juicy as many want them to be.

    Likely Flynn and his foreign business interactions.

    I'd love to see either Trump JR or JK catch some charges.

    It's two indictments. I'm betting it's Manafort and Flynn, unless of course Mueller has managed to flip one of them to turning informant. If that's the case, then it could be anyone all the way up to Jr or Kushner.

    If you read the indictment, Manafort's wife, daughter, and son-in-law are mentioned as participating in ways that could make them criminally liable. I'm betting this is in part an attempt to get Manafort to cooperate with the rest of the investigation.

    He's been a "proactive cooperator" since July according to CNN. Sounds like he may have already flipped and been wearing a wire between July and now.

    Indeed. Arrested in April, kept secret and sealed, began cooperating in July and formally charged in October (beginning of this month). He was still in meetings for the Trump team till early this month. Do you think there is any coincidence that they wait till now to charge him and THEN formal indictments begin to come down with sealed indictments in the pipeline? From what I've read there are four sealed indictments that are likely related to Pap and Manafort/Gates ***seen below***.




    Pap has admitted that he lied in regards to connections too and dealings with Russia concerning the stolen emails.

    This is the beginning, this isn't the worse of what's going to come down.

    And this spin that Pap was a low level guy is outright hilarious. Pap was low level but was named as a member of his foreign policy and then national security team during the campaign. This isn't some low level guy when he is seated four seats away from the president in a closed meeting.
