Mueller Files New Charges Against Paul Manafort and Rick Gates

The indictment contains 32 counts, including allegations of federal bank and tax fraud.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Special Counsel Robert Mueller is filing new charges in his case against former Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort and associate Rick Gates.  

The new indictment contains 32 counts, including allegations of federal bank and tax fraud.  The indictment came from a grand jury in the Eastern District of Virginia today. 

That's in addition to the 12-count indictment Mueller served Manafort and Gates with in October, alleging money laundering and failure to register as foreign agents while completing work related to Ukraine. 

Earlier this week, attorney Alex van der Zwaan pleaded guilty to lying to the Special Counsel's investigators about a conversation he had with Gates in September 2016.
