(Newser) – The first charges have been filed in special counsel Robert Mueller's probe of Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election, sources tell CNN. The charges are still sealed and it's not clear what they are, but sources say anyone charged could be taken into custody as soon as Monday. The White House has not officially responded to CNN's report, but the Hill reports that soon after the report was published, President Trump tweeted a video quoting an opinion piece that implies Hillary Clinton colluded with Russia and tried to frame Trump as a "traitor."
