An unnamed source told CBS News on Friday "it's every man for himself" when it comes to the Mueller investigation, indicating those under scrutiny may be feeling the pressure.

The same source previously disputed the notion that the Trump campaign had worked with Russia in any way. Today his story has changed:

Now, days after former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his deputy Rick Gates were indicted, the source acknowledged to CBS News something he'd been reluctant to admit in the past: "I do believe the Russians interfered or tried to interfere," he said. But he pointed to others associated with the campaign, "I don't know what they were doing" and "whatever those people did, that's on them."

CBS News also reports that several people who are being examined may be at risk for indictment, and there is even conjecture among those occupying President Trump's inner circle, according to a source familiar with the Trump business and White House inner workings.

Among the names the source mentioned were former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn; his son, Michael Flynn Jr.; Felix Sater, a former Trump business associate; Carter Page – a former foreign policy adviser for the campaign; Sam Clovis a former top campaign official; Michael Cohen, Trump's personal attorney; and Jared Kushner who is the president's son-in-law and one of his top advisers.
