The charges were filed by Robert Mueller in October. They have been adding to this case bit by bit. The latest charge they added was one of the things that happened in this hearing today was he was arraigned on new charges of witness tampering. That’s what led the judge to revoke his bail saying he agreed when he was let out on bail that he wouldn’t violate any laws. Now he’s charged with violating witness tampering laws even though his lawyer said what he did didn’t amount to the kind of witness tampering that Mueller was talking about. I think that’s the question. Does it change his calculus on how to go forward.”
