FBI’s Mueller: Charges Today

FBI Director Robert Mueller is holding a press conference right now in Arizona. Formal charges will “quite probably” be filed against Jared Loughner this afternoon, Mueller said, for the killing of Judge Roll and the assault on Rep. Giffords and her staffers.

“It appears that the target was the congresswoman,” Mueller said.

Mueller would not preclude the bringing of additional charges under the domestic terrorism statutes as the investigation unfolds.
