Mueller files first charges in Trump-Russia investigation

Sources tell ABC News an indictment announcement and arrest could possibly come as early as Monday.

As Mueller's inquiry advances, there have been calls from some Republicans - and from the conservative editorial board of the Wall Street Journal - for him to resign.

Official Washington was abuzz this weekend over reports that a grand jury has charged at least one person stemming from the U.S. probe of Russia's attempts to tilt the 2016 presidential elections in Donald Trump's favor. CNN reported that investigators are scrutinizing Trump and his associates' financial ties to Russian Federation.

It is still unclear what the charges are as they are still sealed under orders from a federal judge.

"Never seen such Republican ANGER & UNITY as I have concerning the lack of investigation on Clinton made Fake Dossier (now $12,000,000?),". "Instead they look at phony Trump/Russia 'collusion, ' which doesn't exist".

".'collusion, ' which doesn't exist".

"The Dems are using this awful (and bad for our country) Witch Hunt for evil politics, but the R's. are now fighting back like never before". He also claimed that it wasn't a coincidence that the "Russia talk" was ramping up during the Republican push for tax cuts. "Is this coincidental? NOT!"

Russian helicopter crashes into the sea near Norway
The incident occurred on Wednesday afternoon 2-3 kilometers off Barentsburg, the second-largest settlement on Svalbard Islands. It was not immediately clear if the helicopter had crashed or if there were any injuries.

Mueller, the former director of the FBI, was tasked in May with leading an investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 US election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

His team is known to have conducted extensive interviews with several current and former White House officials.

But Chris Christie, a Republican governor close to Trump, said Sunday on ABC that "the important thing about today for the American people to know is the president is not under investigation".

The president was also reviving unproved allegations that Clinton was part of a quid pro quo in which the Clinton Foundation received donations in exchange for her support as secretary of state for a business deal that gave Russian Federation control over a large share of uranium production in the United States.

Schiff added that the president's controversial pardon of former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio suggests Trump may not wait until an investigation is complete to pardon someone.

A Congressional investigation has been opened into the case.
