How Paul Manafort is connected to Trump, Russia investigation

Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, has pleaded not guilty to a variety of charges brought by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team.

Along with his former business associate Rick Gates, Manafort was initially indicted in October on multiple counts that included: conspiracy against the U.S., conspiracy to launder money, false statements and failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts.

Nearly four months later, on Feb. 22, the pair were hit with additional tax evasion and bank fraud charges.

However, Gates eventually pleaded guilty to federal conspiracy and false-statements charges on Feb. 23.

And on March 8, Manafort pleaded not guilty again to charges including tax evasion and bank fraud in a Virginia federal court.
