Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election is close to wrapping up, Acting U.S. Attorney General Matthew Whitaker said Monday.

“I’ve been fully briefed on the investigation and I look forward to Director Mueller delivering the final report,” he said at a press conference.

“Right now the investigation is I think close to being completed and I hope that we can get the report from Director Mueller as soon as possible.”

Whitaker’s comments mark the first time a top government official with knowledge of the investigation has publicly confirmed the probe is in its final stages.

But Mueller has been tight-lipped about when the months of closed-door grand jury sessions and criminal charges will conclude, leaving questions over how far into the White House his probe will reach and what will happen to his findings.

Mueller’s investigation most recently ensnared Roger Stone, a long-time confidant of President Donald Trump.

Others in Trump’s orbit have also been charged in the probe, including Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, his former campaign deputy, Richard Gates, and his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn.
