The unsealed indictment of Paul Manafort on Monday is the first to be produced by U.S. Department of Justice special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s actions in the 2016 elections.

The charges stem from Manafort’s work on behalf of the Ukrainian government, and his alleged attempts to hide the proceeds of that arrangement in foreign accounts that were used to pay for real estate and other personal items. Manafort, the former chair of President Donald Trump’s election campaign, along with a co-defendant, his business partner Richard Gates, were charged with, among other things, money laundering conspiracy, failure to report foreign accounts, and false or misleading statements regarding their status as foreign agents.
