By the end of day Friday, Oct. 27, newshounds in the United States already had a reason to look forward to Monday.
National outlets including CNN reported Friday afternoon that Bob Mueller, the special investigator heading up the team looking into Russian interference in the 2016 election, filed an indictment against then-unknown persons.
By Monday morning, it was reported that Mueller filed charges against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and that a Trump campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about contacts with an unidentified professor with ties to the Russian government.
In response, President Donald Trump tweeted that investigators should focus on Hillary Clinton.
