Mueller's new indictment of Manafort and Gates debunks White House talking points

The indictment adds that Manafort, "with the assistance" of Gates, laundered some $30 million - "income that [Manafort] concealed" from the Treasury and Justice Departments. With mounting legal expenses and the potential for lengthy prison sentences, Manafort and Gates might reconsider cutting a deal with Mueller's team. They are accused of directing a covert Washington lobbying campaign on behalf of pro-Russian Ukrainian interests.

Mueller initially charged Manafort and Gates in late October.

A 33-year-old attorney, fired last year by a prominent global law firm, became the fourth person to plead guilty in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation, admitting on Tuesday that he lied to federal investigators about his contacts with a Trump campaign official. "Specifically, they represented the Government of Ukraine, the President of Ukraine".

"Mueller is sending a signal to witnesses in this investigation that he is going to charge false statements", said Renato Mariotti", a former federal prosecutor who is running for IL attorney general as a Democrat. There had been speculation that Gates was going to plead guilty in that case. This particular report was authored by the Skadden Arps.

The new indictment comes a week after Mueller filed charges against 13 Russians, accusing them of a vast conspiracy to undermine the United States presidential election.

Mueller is tasked with investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 election and the possibility that associates of President Trump colluded with the Kremlin. This was done by the systematic denigrating of Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton.

Those original indictments were the first criminal charges filed by Mr Mueller's probe into the 2016 race, but did not relate to the campaign and instead focused on financial transactions involving Mr Manafort and Mr Gates. They allegedly made false statements regarding income, debt, use of property, and false profit and loss statements.
