According to multiple reports, a grand jury has approved the first charges in the federal investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

It's not clear how serious the charges are, but CNN is reporting that the secrecy around them suggests several people are likely to be accused.

The investigation, which began previous year, is seeking to determine Russia's involvement in the 2016 presidential election, as well as if anyone in Trump's campaign colluded with the Kremlin.

As of late Friday evening, Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office has declined to respond to questions about the charges, but top lawyers in the probe were seen entering the grand jury room earlier in the day.

Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski downplayed the significance of the charges Saturday on Fox News Channel.
