CNN reported Friday that special counsel Bob Mueller and a grand jury is filing charges against individuals and is seeking to obtain arrest warrants.
The individuals may not yet have been notified, and as such CNN was not able to release any names. However, arrests are expected Monday.
Given that Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself, Rod Rosenstein will be the person who must approve the warrants. It’s unclear if the Justice Department was aware this week that arrests were expected. However, many commentators assumed the White House’s attacks on Hillary Clinton were a distraction from something forthcoming.
CNN also reported that veteran prosecutor Andrew Weissmann was seen entering the Washington, D.C. federal court in which the grand jury hears testimony about the Russia investigation. Reporters witnessed a “flurry” of activity that was outside the norm.
