BREAKING: Robert Mueller Hits Manafort, Gates With New Financial Charges
Special Counsel Robert Mueller hit Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his business associate Rick Gates with 32 new charges Thursday.
Special counsel Robert Mueller filed a new indictment charging former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and aide Rick Gates with multiple counts of tax and bank fraud.
The new charges, returned by a federal grand jury in Alexandria, Virginia on Thursday, come after Mueller separately charged the two men in Washington last year with money laundering and failing to register as foreign agents for their work related to Ukraine.
