    Washington (CNN) Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former Trump campaign official Rick Gates surrendered Monday to Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller.


    Gates, 45, is a longtime business associate of Manafort, 68, having worked together since the mid-2000s, and served as his deputy on the campaign. The two were indicted under seal on Friday, a source with direct knowledge of the matter said.


    The indictment against the two men contains 12 counts: conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false and misleading US Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) statements, false statements, and seven counts of failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts.


    Manafort arrived at the FBI's Washington field office Monday morning. The two are being processed separately, according to a law enforcement official. They will later be transported to federal district court in Washington later Monday morning.

    This is going nowhere, like everything else tied to these corrupt liberals it will cost the taxpayers millions to have a trial that finds these two people not guilty of all charges. Now the real question is why has hillary and her gang not been charged with crimes we already know is true ? For starters we need a new AG with some balls and spine to stop this stuff we see this morning

    This is from when Manafort was working for the Podesta Group.

    The charges do not cover any activities related to the campaign, though it's possible Mueller could add additional charges.

    That was my question as well. This apparently relates to activity long before President Trump was running for President. Or did I miss something? Working, so not glued to the news.

    Nobody ever heard of Gates in any major way, shape, or form. That's a dud right out of the barrel.

    And a lot the Manafort stuff has already been superficially discussed all year, with nothing related to what he was doing after Rock said; working with the Podesta Brothers.

    If we don't hear from Mueller via a live appearance today, I can only conclude that this was a desperate distraction. Let's see if he can face a barrage of questions.

    Only shows the level of corruption in our govt.

    The Klintons took in over $1 BILLION, they can spread around a lot of money inside the govt and to compound, that a lot of govt workers are as corrupt in their aiding and abetting of HildaBeast.


    Just read about Al 'scarface' Capone and his bloody life of crime and corruption, but he went to jail for Tax evasion since they could NEVER pin anything else on him.

    Klintons and Obama +++++ belong in prison but you will be lucky to even hang a speeding ticket on them. The Klintons are the Kennedys of their era...Chappaquiddick!
