NBC News reports:

Former Donald Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his longtime business associate Rick Gates were indicted by a federal grand jury on 12 charges, including conspiracy against the U.S., Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office announced Monday.

Other charges against Manafort and Gates include money laundering, being an unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false foreign registration statements and seven counts of failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts.

The indictment was unsealed Monday after Manafort and Gates were told to surrender to law enforcement.

It says, “In total, more than $75 million flowed through offshore accounts” and it refers to Manafort’s “hidden overseas wealth to enjoy a lavish lifestyle in the United States.”

Business Insider’s Joe Perticone tweeted the complete DOJ indictment:

Manafort set to make a court appearance at 1:30pm EST, according to CNN.

“The indictment of Manafort and Gates is damning on their financial dealings, but it makes no mention of Trump, collusion or the campaign,” tweeted ABC New White House correspondent Jonathan Karl.
