Paul Manafort Is Reportedly Told To Surrender To Federal Agents

Paul Manafort Is Reportedly Told To Surrender To Federal Agents”

A former prosecutor and Federal Bureau of Investigation director, Mueller partnered with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in August to look into Manafort's possible financial crimes, including money laundering.

While it is not yet public what charges Manafort is facing, Mueller had been investigating him for "violations of federal tax law, money laundering and whether he appropriately disclosed his foreign lobbying", according to The New York Times. Manafort was spotted by reporters leaving his condo in Virginia early on Monday.

U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's campaign chair and convention manager Paul Manafort appears at a press conference at the Republican Convention in Cleveland, U.S., July 19, 2016.

Manafort has a network of shadowy connections to Russia, including over $60 million in deals with Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, who is quite close to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Investigators have also issued subpoenas seeking testimony from a number of people linked to Manafort throughout the probe. Gates is described by the Times as a former protege of Manafort.

The indictment of a top official from President Donald Trump's campaign signals a dramatic new phase of Mueller's wide-ranging investigation into possible collusion between the Russian government and members of Trump's team as well as potential obstruction of justice and financial crimes.

The claims of Mueller's capacity to be an efficient investigator have now been borne out, as this indictment comes less than six months after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller.
