Potential Federal Charges in Mueller Investigation Should Be Met With Skepticism

On Friday October 28, 2017, CNN reported first that a federal grand jury in Washington, D.C. had approved charges in the Russian 2016 election interference investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller, according to anonymous sources.

CNN’s sources told the network that the “charges are still sealed under orders from a federal judge.” These individuals also said that a potential figure could be taken into custody as soon as Monday, but declined to mention who exactly and for what reasons.

It is rather peculiar that those close to the investigation leaked these claims to CNN, despite the charges remaining under sealed order from a federal judge.
