Transcript for Federal grand jury approves first charges in the Russia Investigation
Next to the Russia investigation. The first charges in that probe expected to be handed down as early as tomorrow morning. We've confirmed they are seeking charges against at least one target. A possible indictment and arrest said to be immeant. And the president demanding more scrutiny of Democrats, and his onetime rival for the white house, Hillary Clinton. David Wright with the latest on all of this. Reporter: Tonight, at the white house, Russian roulette. Sources tell ABC news the first arrest in the Russia investigation is coming as soon as tomorrow. But we don't yet know who will be charged or what the charges will be. Believe me, if you're the person, you know. I mean, you've already been told you're a target. Reporter: ABC news has confirmed that a senior prosecutor from Robert Mueller's office who specializes in fraud cases was at the federal courthouse in Washington Friday. Sources tell ABC news the grand jury has approved charges. There's no shortage of possible members of trump's inner circle who have faced questions. Regarding their dealings with Russians. Or there could be others we haven't heard of before. The big question becomes, is the strategy going to be first go for a little fish to try to get that person to turn, right? Typically, that's the way you would do something like this. Reporter: The president's men are pushing back. Give me a break. The speculation is so insane right now. What we should be focusing on are the continued lies of the Clinton administration. Reporter: Trump adviser Roger stone tweeted obscenities at CNN when they broke the news. Twitter promptly suspended him. The whole Russia thing was an excuse for the Democrats losing the election and it turns out to be just one excuse. Reporter: Now the president once again is calling this a sideshow. Tweeting, "All of this Russia talk right when the Republicans are making their big push for historic tax cuts and reform. Is this coincidental? Not!" "The DEMs are using this terrible (and bad for our country) Witch hunt for evil politics." But the white house lawyer handling the Russia probe quickly clarified, "The president's comments today are unrelated to the activities of the special counsel, with whom he continues to cooperate." Today, the ranking member of the house intelligence committee would not comment on whether the president could be a target of the investigation. I can't comment on that, George. I can't answer that one way or the other. You wouldn't know whether Robert Mueller is investigating the president? I can't comment on that at all. David Wright joins us live from the white house. Any response from those who could be in jeopardy? Reporter: The two key targets so far, Paul manafort and Michael Flynn. ABC news has reached out to both. Manafort's team says they don't think an indictment is coming their way. Flynn's team hasn't responded.
