Special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation is expected to reach some conclusions about the hacking of emails belonging to both the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta, Axios is reporting.

The website attributed the information to a source familiar with the probe. And it follows a 37-page indictment of 13 Russians and three Russian companies on Friday. The indictment charged there was an elaborate plot to interfere in the 2016 presidential election through social media propaganda aimed at helping Donald Trump.

Former Justice Department spokesman Matt Miller told Axios: "Now that (Mueller) has decided to indict one set of Russian participants, it seems likely he will indict the Russian participants in the hacking as well. The big question . . . remains whether there will be any American co-conspirators."

And Miller said it appears Mueller is laying the groundwork for more charges to come.

"Friday's indictment established the legal architecture for possible future charges," he said. 'Once you've established there was a conspiracy, you can charge anyone who was aware of the conspiracy and took an overt action to further it."
