The first charges have been filed in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian influence in the 2016 election. Those charges were sealed by a federal judge and, according to CNN, could yield arrests as soon as Monday.
A federal grand jury in Washington DC approved the charges following approval by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
The investigation into how Russia influenced the election has been ongoing for several months. At the center of the investigation are two men who worked for Donald Trump: Paul Manafort, the former campaign manager for the Trump campaign, and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Speculation surrounds these two men with RedState reporting that Manafort seems to be the most likely to have been charged based upon reporting by CNN.
CNN on Mueller Indictment: We Have a Sense of Who the Charges Are Against
There are plenty of theories going around, and Brown was discussing an unspecified “raid”, which might lead one to think of Paul Manafort. But no names so far.
The big question is how long will everyone have to sit on this info, or wait for it, before it’s finally leaked? Will it be leaked Sunday? Tomorrow? In the next ten minutes?
Regardless of who is charged, the timing is ironic. It was revealed just this week that the FBI, DNC, and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign funded the Steele Dossier, which used Russian sources to deliver opposition research about Trump.
The political world will be watching closely to see who gets arrested. Will it be Manafort? Flynn? Someone else? We’ll probably know by Monday.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
