Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort surrenders to federal authorities

Paul Manafort, the former campaign chairman for President Donald Trump and a former business associate, Rick Gates, surrendered to federal authorities Monday morning, according to multiple reports.

The charges against Manafort and Gates are the first in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into potential coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign. Details.

The exact charges both men face have not been released.

According to Fox News, Manafort and Gates surrendered to federal authorities in Washington and are expected in court later Monday to face charges brought by Mueller’s team, according to a source familiar with the investigation.

A second source said that Gates had agreed to an arrangement to surrender on Monday.

The sources spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss publicly an ongoing federal investigation.
