Reports are that someone could be taken into custody as early as Monday.
Mueller — who has himself fallen under suspicion relating to other ‘Russia’ matters — is moving ahead with charges on an as-yet unnamed person.
On Friday, top lawyers who are helping to lead the Mueller probe, including veteran prosecutor Andrew Weissmann, were seen entering the court room at the DC federal court where the grand jury meets to hear testimony in the Russia investigation.
Reporters present saw a flurry of activity at the grand jury room, but officials made no announcements.
So, just when the Right is calling out the Obama administration generally — and the Clintons in particular — for their own Dubious Russian connections, Mueller pulled the trigger (or at least, that is what is being reported) on charges.
With Mueller’s checkered history, Democrats shouldn’t get too excited.
Mueller — we should remember — hired Weissman.
The backstory: Defense attorneys say Mr. Weissmann bent or broke the rules. As proof, they point to appeals court decisions, exhibits and witness statements.
They say he intimidated witnesses by threatening indictments, created crimes that did not exist and, in one case, withheld evidence that could have aided the accused. At one hearing, an incredulous district court judge looked down at an Enron defendant and told him he was pleading guilty to a wire fraud crime that did not exist.
“Weissmann seemed more interested in obtaining convictions than in promoting justice,” said Tom Kirkendall, a Houston lawyer who represented an Enron executive.
Said Mr. Cogdell, a colorful courtroom performer dubbed a “gunslinger” by the local press, “He’s the most aggressive prosecutor I’ve ever been up against. He is, if not win at all cost, he’s win at almost any cost.”

That same piece outlines how his conviction of Anderson Associates went to the Supreme Court and was overturned with a unanimous 9-0 decision.
And some other red flags?
Who was the prosecutor leading the investigation? Rod Rosenstein. That would be the same Rod Rosenstein who is now Deputy Attorney General and supervising the Russia probe.
Who was the FBI Director? Robert Mueller. That would be the same Robert Mueller who is leading the Russia probe.
Who was leading the FBI investigation? Andrew McCabe. That would be the same Andrew McCabe whose wife ran for a Virginia state senate seat and got some $700K from Clinton bagman, Terry McAuliffe. This would be the same Andrew McCabe who is under investigation for violating the Hatch Act by electioneering for his wife. This would be the same Andrew McCabe who is under investigation for retaliation and sex discrimination. This would be the same Andrew McCabe who approved his own refusal to recuse himself from the Russia investigation both because of his Clinton ties and because of his personal vendetta against Mike Flynn.

The ClashDaily store has the best shirt to remind these hacks daily that it wasn’t President Trump that loved Russia, it was actually Hillary.
The Real Russia Conspiracy is That Hillary and the Democrat Party Are the Real Russia Colluders
After months of lies from the left that a fake dossier contained evidence of collusion between President Donald Trump and the Russians, now we find out that the whole “report” was a false flag effort invented by an outfit bought and paid for by Hillary Clinton and the Democrat National Committee to destroy Trump’s campaign for president.
Not only that, but we’ve also found out that the real colluders were the Clintons and the Democrats.
The Washington Post revealed that the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid for the report that claimed that Trump was connected to Russia.
The paper reported that Marc E. Elias, an attorney working form Hillary Clinton and the DNC, hired Fusion GPS to produce the fake Russia/Trump report.
We have also discovered that the heart of the Russia/Clinton collusion was a deal to allow the Russian company Uranium One to buy a significant part of America’s uranium supply.
The investigation has revealed a whole slew of connections between the Clintons and Russia.
The bottom line?
Hillary. LOVES. Russia.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
