Paul Manafort and Trump's Former Associate Arrested in Russia Probe

President Trump’s former campaign chair Paul Manafort and his former business associate Rick Gates were told to surrender to authorities Monday morning, after a federal grand jury in Washington, D.C., handed down the first indictments in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 presidential election. It’s not yet clear what charges the pair face, but Manafort is under investigation over his foreign lobbying efforts. Mueller is also investigating whether Trump associates engaged in money laundering or tax evasion and whether Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey last May constituted obstruction of justice. After news of the indictments broke, President Trump lashed out against Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party, tweeting, “All of this 'Russia' talk right when the Republicans are making their big push for historic Tax Cuts & Reform. Is this coincidental? NOT!”
