Last night, shortly after reports leaked to CNN that Special Counsel Mueller had filed his first charges in the Russia investigation, Fox News host Sean Hannity responded via Twitter asking simply: "When will Hillary Clinton be indicted?"

Of course, as we noted last night (see: Mueller Reportedly Ready To File First Charges In Russia Probe), CNN was the first to report that charges had been filed by Mueller and that arrests could be made in the coming days, a report that was subsequently 'confirmed' by Reuters. That said, the subject of the charges was not revealed and details of the court documents were sealed under orders from a federal judge.
A federal grand jury in Washington, DC, on Friday approved the first charges in the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller, according to sources briefed on the matter.
The charges are still sealed under orders from a federal judge. Plans were prepared Friday for anyone charged to be taken into custody as soon as Monday, the sources said. It is unclear what the charges are.
A spokesman for the special counsel's office declined to comment.
Hannity, a vocal supporter of President Trump, went on to accuse Mueller of working in conjunction with the mainstream media to "change the narrative" after new details emerged last week regarding the "Uranium One" scandal, which is now being investigated by the House Intelligence Committee and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, and the revelation that Hillary's campaign and the DNC funded the infamous "Trump Dossier".
Guess;Mueller and Media working hand in hand. Media to be tipped off. Mueller was FBI Director Who knew of Russian crimes before Uranium one— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) October 28, 2017

This has been a HORRIBLE week for Mueller, Special Counsel’s office. THIS IS ALL A DISTRACTION. Monday I’ll have the details. TICK TOCK....!— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) October 28, 2017
Carefully orchestrated attempt to shift the media narrative or just a logical progression in an ongoing investigation, the answer should be unveiled on Monday.
