Sen Angus King: Special Counsel Mueller's Charges Are 'Just the Beginning'

First Charges Filed in Robert Mueller Investigation

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.

Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union", while discussing a potential indictment coming in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe, Sen.

At least one person is in the legal crosshairs, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Trump said Republicans were angry that investigators were focusing on "phony Trump/Russia 'collusion, ' which doesn't exist" rather than the Clinton campaign's involvement with a "Fake Dossier" on Trump and other issues. "Is this coincidental? NOT!" the president tweeted.

Under the regulations governing special counsel investigations, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who has oversight over the Russian Federation 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.

Mueller has kept a tight lid on information about the probe, and a spokesman for Mueller's office declined requests for comment on the media reports about the indictment.

Amazon's Bezos world's richest, again
Bezos owned almost 80 million shares in Amazon as of August, according to the most recent available data from FactSet. Bezos first joined the Forbes 400 in 1998, one year after Amazon went public, with a net worth of $1.6bn.

The charges, which are still sealed under orders from a federal judge, mark a dramatic escalation for Mueller, as the drama surrounding the Justice Department investigation gradually moves from a political battleground into the courtroom. He took over the probe after Trump in May fired FBI Director James Comey, who started it in July 2016.

Special counsel Robert Mueller has spent months quietly building his case.

It is not clear who has been charged, or why.

Sebastian Gorka, Trump's former strategist who left the White House in August, tweeted Friday that if Mueller's team "executes warrants this weekend he should stripped of his authority by @realDonaldTrump".

News has not confirmed the report. Comey told Congress in March that part of the investigation's purview included allegations that the Trump campaign had colluded with Russian government officials to undermine Clinton's campaign.
