First Charges Filed In Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia Investigation

Robert Mueller was FBI director at the same time the Uranium One deal was being debated and approved

On Friday, multiple sources reported that the first charges had been filed in the Russian Federation investigation spearheaded by special counsel Robert Mueller.

As of Saturday morning, it was unclear what exactly the charges were or who they'd been filed against as they were sealed under a federal judge's order.

Michael Flynn, who briefly served as Mr Trump's national security adviser before he was sacked in February for misleading vice president Mike Pence about the extent of his conversations with a Russian ambassador, is also under investigation. Akhmetshin and Manafort, along with several others, met in June 2016.

USA intelligence agencies concluded in January that Russian Federation interfered in the election to try and help President Donald Trump defeat Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

Her comment was made in response to a question about Trump's tweeting earlier in the day that it was "commonly agreed" there had been no collusion between his presidential campaign and Russian Federation.

Mueller's office declined to comment on the news.

The Kremlin has denied the allegations.

Comey said during congressional testimony in June that he felt the president tried to pressure him into dropping the FBI's investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn four months earlier.

As Special Counsel he has sweeping powers and the authority to prosecute any crimes he uncovers. By June, Trump himself was reportedly under investigation for obstruction of justice.
