In a new indictment released Friday, Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team has levied more charges against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. Friday's indictment charges Manafort with obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice, and names Manafort's aide Konstantin Kilimnik, who may have ties to Russian intelligence, as well. The document spells out how Manafort, with his previously indicted business partner Rick Gates, were paid by the Ukrainian government to lobby and influence politics on Ukraine's behalf and didn't disclose their Ukraine-based income to the U.S. The indictment also details Manafort's previous charges, which include conspiracy against the U.S., conspiracy to launder money, and being an unregistered foreign agent.
