Mueller's Grand Jury Unseals First Indictments

The first criminal charges were unsealed Monday in the FBI’s investigation of Russian election interference and the possible involvement of the Trump campaign. Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his associate Rick Gates were charged with 12 counts of conspiracy, money laundering and making false statements about undisclosed money that Manafort earned as an overseas lobbyist.
