Robert Mueller brings the first indictments in the Trump-Russia probe

Paul Manafort and Rick Gates — two top Trump staffers during the 2016 campaign — have been indicted in federal court in the latest development from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

In July, we learned that Manafort — Trump’s former campaign chair — attended a meeting Donald Trump Jr. set up with a Russian lawyer last year to get dirt on Hillary Clinton. Later that month, the FBI raided Manafort’s house for documents. His business associates, from PR firms to his former lawyer and his current spokesperson, are being slammed with subpoenas from Mueller’s team. Manafort’s son-in-law has reportedly been approached and asked to cooperate with the investigation.

Later, we learned that that Manafort was wiretapped, that Mueller’s team told him to expect an indictment, and that he tried to set up private briefings for a Russian billionaire while chairing Trump’s campaign.
