(Reuters) - U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller filed new criminal charges on Friday against President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort and a Manafort associate with alleged ties to Russian intelligence.
The special counsel said in a statement the third indictment against Paul Manafort adds Konstantin Kilimnik as a defendant and charges both men with conspiracy to obstruct justice and obstruction of justice.
