Mueller files new charges against Rick Gates, Paul Manafort

Manafort, who helmed the Trump campaign during the summer of 2016, had already been indicted in October on a charges of conspiracy against the United States, failure to register as a foreign agent and several financial crimes, including conspiracy to launder money.

Manafort and Gates are two of the most prominent members of Trump's former campaign to face criminal charges as part of the special counsel's investigation into possible coordination between Trump campaign associates and Russia's attack on the 2016 presidential election.

A former top adviser to President Donald Trump's campaign is expected to plead guilty in the special counsel's Russian Federation probe, according to a person familiar with the decision said Friday.

A grand jury in Virginia has filed a 32-count indictment charging ex-Trump campaign chiefs Paul J. Manafort, Jr., and Richard W. Gates III with federal tax and bank fraud allegations.

The new charges come a week after a separate Mueller indictment charged 13 Russians in a conspiracy to undermine the U.S. presidential election.

"Manafort and Gates generated tens of millions of dollars in income as a result of their Ukraine work", the indictment read.

Heavy drinking may increase risk for dementia
Alcohol use was also not objectively measured in the participants, one of the study's main limitations. This indicated the numerous ways in which alcohol use disorders contribute to the risk of dementia.

The new indictment also more closely details the methods through which Manafort and Gates would have evaded taxes. The two men are now facing similar indictments in two federal courts, which raises the likelihood that Mr. Manafort's case will be moved to Alexandria. He also allegedly lied about how much of his income was from foreign sources when applying for the loan. Zwaan's plea comes after Mueller gave an extraordinary indictment which charged 13 Russians and also three Russian companies.

"Guilty, your honor", Gates told U.S. District Judge Amy Jackson in a packed second-floor courtroom.

The fund transfers used to pay for the luxury goods were not reported as income, and some of the money was masked as "loans" that Manafort used to buy real estate, such as property in New York City, the indictment says.

Alex van der Zwaan, 33 years old, and previous employee of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, has admitted in the federal court of Washington that he made false statements regarding his interactions with Rick Gates.

A person familiar with the case confirmed to NPR on Friday that Gates has been negotiating with the office of special counsel Robert Mueller to change his plea from not guilty and cooperate with investigators. Initially, he pleaded not guilty to the October charges. So the pair doctored profit and loss statements to claim that in 2015 that they had earned $4 million more than they actually had, and $3.5 million more in 2016, the indictment alleges.
