Arrests expected soon in FBI's Russia probe

From Morning Report, 7:21 am on 30 October 2017

The first arrests in the FBI's investigation into Russian interference in last year's US presidential elections are expected in a little over 24 hours. On Friday a Federal grand jury approved the first charges in the investigation lead by special counsel Robert Mueller. The charges are still sealed under orders from a federal judge but speculation about who might be arrested is running hot in Washington. Ahead of the likely arrests, President Donald Trump took once again to Twitter with what appeared to be an attempt at distraction. "All of this 'Russia' talk right when the Republicans are making their big push for historic Tax Cuts & Reform. Is this coincidental? NOT!" Washington correspondent Nina-Maria Potts joins us with the latest details.
