A person familiar with the investigation told Bloomberg that Mueller’s team is looking to wrap up the portion of the probe focused on collusion by the fall and hand down any possible collusion-related charges in that time frame.

The special counsel’s office declined to comment to Bloomberg.

Trump has repeatedly attacked Mueller's probe into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign in the 2016 presidential race, calling it a "witch hunt." Trump has maintained that no collusion took place.

Mueller charged 13 Russian nationals and three Russian groups with election interference earlier this year.
