Former short-lived Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort and his business associate Rick Gates were ordered to turn themselves over to the FBI this morning on charges including tax evasion.

Rick Gates has been a business partner of Paul Manafort since the mid-2000’s.

The indictment against Manafort and Gates is expected to be unsealed by Monday afternoon.


The charges that Manafort and Gates face reportedly have nothing to do with misconduct in the 2016 Presidential Election.

The New York Times reports:

Mr. Manafort has expected charges since this summer, when F.B.I. agents raided his home and prosecutors warned him that they planned to indict him. That warning raised speculation that Mr. Manafort might try to cut a deal to avoid prosecution.

Mr. Trump’s lawyer, Ty Cobb, said there were no concernsthat Mr. Manafort would offer damaging information about the president in exchange for a deal.

Some close to Mr. Manafort, including his former business partner Roger J. Stone Jr., have said he had nothing to offer that would help prosecutors build a case against Mr. Trump.

“He’s not going to lie,” Mr. Stone said in September.
