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.

“Former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos pleads guilty to lying to FBI agents in the Robert Mueller Probe,” reported Fox News.

Reuters reports:

George Papadopolous has pleaded guilty to making false statements to FBI agents, the federal special counsel said on Monday, becoming the third adviser to President Donald Trump’s campaign to face criminal charges in its investigation.

Papadopolous, of Chicago, is an international energy lawyer who was part of Trump’s advisory team during the 2016 presidential campaign. He pleaded guilty on Oct. 5 in a case unsealed on Monday, the special counsel’s office said in a statement.

Papadopolous sent emails to seven campaign advisers in the spring of 2016 titled “Meeting with Russian Leadership – Including Putin.” Navy Rear Adm. Charles Kubic was one of several campaign advisers who believed the email  may have violated the Logan Act. At this time, it is unclear what false statements Papadopolous made to the FBI.

“Special Counsel Mueller appears to have a cooperating witness, George Papadopoulos. That is significant. Time will tell how significant,” tweeted Former US Attorney Preet Bharara.

According to the plea agreement, the former aide will gain leniency in exchange for his cooperation.
