Mueller files 32 new charges against Paul Manafort and Rick Gates

When it rains it pours!

“Special counsel Robert Mueller on Thursday filed 32 new charges related to bank and tax fraud against former Trump campaign officials Paul Manafort and Rick Gates” who “have so far resisted Mueller’s attempts to flip them in the Russia investigation.”

However, “Thursday’s charges, coupled with a Manafort-linked Russian lawyer’s guilty plea on Tuesday, will likely put further pressure on both Manafort and Gates to become cooperating witnesses.”
