Ex-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and Richard Gates are indicted for failure to report income and for acting as foreign agents. The charges allege that Manafort received millions from Ukraine and from companies inside Ukraine that are owned by the Kremlin. The money went to offshore accounts and was used to purchase US real estate, which then became collateral for loans. This money was hidden income on which he failed to pay taxes.  Altogether, $75 million flowed through Manafort’s offshore accounts, and he is said to have laundered more than $18 million. Prior to this, Manafort was the campaign manager for Ukrainian President Yanukovych.  None of these issues relate to Trump, but Napolitano says the plan is to indict as many members of the Trump team as possible in hopes of getting some of them to implicate Trump himself in one of their crimes in exchange for leniency.
