Mueller Files New Fraud Charges Against Paul Manafort

Mueller Files New Fraud Charges Against Paul Manafort

Manafort was one of several former campaign advisers who were indicted by Mueller's office in October, as part of a sweeping investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The new charges stem from work Manafort and Gates performed for Ukraine, specifically for Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych and the political parties affiliated with him.

The charge against van der Zwaan make no reference to Trump's campaign or the 2016 election.

The indictment unsealed on Thursday includes allegations of wrongdoing as recently as January 2017 and alleges that Manafort and Gates were desperate for cash when their lobbying business dried up, after pro-Kremlin Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich was forced to flee to Russian Federation after being ousted from power.

Sources have told NPR in recent weeks that Gates, who is now struggling to pay his mounting legal fees, may be in the process of negotiating a guilty plea.

They both pleaded not guilty, with Mr Manafort released on $10m bond and Mr Gates released on $5m bond and placed under house arrest as they were deemed a flight risk.

Nunberg was an aide to the Trump campaign until he was sacked in 2015 for allegedly posting racist comments on social media. "Specifically, they represented the Government of Ukraine, the President of Ukraine".

On Tuesday, Skadden Arps released a statement saying it had fired van der Zwaan past year, and it "has been cooperating with authorities in connection with this matter". The latter's political party was once a client of Manafort and Gates. Both had already faced the prospect of at least a decade in prison if convicted at trial.

He lied to investigators about his contacts with Gates and another unnamed person.

Former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former campaign foreign policy aide George Papadopoulos have both pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about their contacts with Russians.

Media reports say that a man referred to in court documents by the special counsel's office has having ties to Russian intelligence is Kilimnik but he has denied such ties.

In a statement on Tuesday, a spokeswoman for the firm said it had terminated van der Zwaan's employment in 2017 and "has been cooperating with authorities in connection with this matter".
