The first charges have been filed in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
These charges are currently sealed, but that is expected to change Monday and a arrest is expected.
Rumors that are floating around tend to include Paul Manafort and Gen. Michael Flynn.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election tampering will reportedly strike its first blow tomorrow, when a judge is expected to unseal the first charges stemming from the federal probe.
A grand jury approved the first indictment from Mueller’s investigation Friday, and they are sealed until tomorrow when an arrest is expected, according to multiple media outlets, who cited unnamed sources.
It’s unclear who or how many people will be charged and what the alleged crimes are.
Legal experts told the Herald they expect the target of the indictment to be someone investigators think they can convince to cooperate once they find themselves facing federal charges.
“The way you work this investigation is you start at the bottom,” former federal prosecutor David Weinstein said. “When you have a sufficient amount of evidence to present to a grand jury. They return an indictment, and you offer those people an opportunity to join Team USA.”
Weinstein said the initial indictment is not an indication that the probe is nearing its end.
“It’s far from over,” he said. “It’s certainly in the middle of the investigation.”
