President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort turned himself into authorities today on charges stemming from Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller’s investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. A federal grand jury has charged Manafort and his business and campaign associate Rick Gates in a 12-count indictment including "conspiracy against the United States, and conspiracy to launder money." Mueller has been investigating Manafort, who resigned as campaign manager in August 2016, for his alleged financial ties to a pro-Russia party in Ukraine. Another former Trump campaign aide, George Papadopoulos, also pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI in the Russia probe while he was a Trump aide.
