WITT: “We are covering this breaking story with Kelly o'donnell and Danny savalas and Josh gir stein. Kelly, can we expect any official reaction to this news?”
O’DONNELL: “So far we have not. I've reached out to White House officials. No comment at this point. There are a lot of questions here. We don't know who would be the subject of such an indictment, what the charges would be. There are some big holes in this so far. But it is a certainly notable report from CNN. It could suggest a big new chapter what has been a sprawling Russia investigation. Also no comment from the office of the special counsel, Robert Mueller, who has been leading this investigation for months and working with a grand jury who has been conducting its work behind closed doors in secret.
O’DONNELL: ”This morning what could be a major step forward in special council Robert Mueller's investigation. CNN is reporting that a grand jury on Friday approved the first charges in the probe and that anyone targeted could be forced to surrender as soon as Monday. NBC news has been unable to confirm the report. Mueller, a former FBI director, was appointed last may to look into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election. Mueller's team has also been investigating former lobbying by former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former national security adviser Michael Flynn among other, manafort and Flynn's lawyers have denied any wrongdoing, be every the news broke, president Trump tweeted on Friday, it is now commonly agreed, after many months of costly looking, that there was no collusion between Russia and trump, was collusion with hc, meaning Hillary Clinton. President Trump's press secretary Sarah Sanders agreed.”
HILUCKABEE SANDERS: “There is still no evidence of collusion between the president and anyone. All of your news organizations have spent probably a lot of money on this as well, which we would consider probably a pretty big waste.”
O’DONNELL:”But the investigation by the special council and Congress is going full steam. Friday, former adviser met with committee staffers for more than five hours. Plus NBC news learned congressional investigators questioned President Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen earlier this week over a failed plan to open a new tower in Moscow. Both Cohen and Paige insist they are being smeared by false allegations, as to the trump claims, it's the Clinton campaign that colluded with Russians.”
