Paul Manafort, Gates indicted on 32 more federal charges

Looks like Paul Manafort and Rick Gates will indeed be spending the remainder of their lives behind bars.  On Thursday,   U.S Special Counsel Robert Mueller announced that both men now have 32 additional federal charges added to their rap-sheet. Among them; bank fraud, conspiracy, fraud,  falsifying tax returns,  mortgage and credit applications, and at least 14 other types of charges.

Furthermore,  Manafort himself, now also stands accused of laundering millions-of-dollars into pro-Russia groups during his time working for the government of Ukraine.   It is unclear, as the Times notes, how this relates to the Trump campaign.

What is known, is, that Mueller is suddenly announcing more charges than ever before as it is widely believed that he indeed has dirt on Trump himself.
