CNN is reporting the first charges have been filed in the Robert Mueller investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 usa election.

A federal judge sealed the charges on Friday. CNN merely said "sources" informed them of the indictment. The people facing charges, it said, could be taken into custody as early as Monday.

Mueller was appointed to lead the investigation a week after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, who was heading a federal probe into possible collusion with Russian Federation.

The first charges in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation have been approved, according to CNN.

Lawyers representing President Trump, Donald Trump Jr., former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner did not respond to BuzzFeed News requests for comment.

Many possible charges and incidents are under investigation by Mueller's team.

After Comey's ouster, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller to lead the investigation.

Asia Now Has More Billionaires Than the US
The country's gross domestic product was US$1.85 trillion previous year , making it the eight largest economy in the world. But while Asian billionaires now outnumber their USA counterparts, the Americans still control more wealth in total.

Mueller was the Federal Bureau of Investigation director while the FBI was investigating a subsidiary of Russia's state-owned nuclear energy company, Rosatom.

The Kremlin has denied the allegations.

As Special Counsel he has sweeping powers and the authority to prosecute any crimes he uncovers.

The allegation led to speculation that president might have obstructed justice by attempting to influence the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe. It also came after weeks of questions about the Justice Department's independence from the White House.

Reuters, The Wall Street Journal and NBC News subsequently issued similar reports.

However, reports of charges being filed appear to signal that Mueller means business and the investigation will likely continue well into 2018.
