Paul Manafort, U.S. President Donald Trump's former campaign manager, and his associate Rick Gates were indicted by a federal grand jury on 12 counts on Monday. This was the first round of charges from Justice Department special council Robert Mueller, who oversees the probe into Russian involvement in the 2016 U.S. election.

Manafort and Gates were charged with conspiracy against the U.S., conspiracy to launder money, and 7 counts of failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts.

The two are also changed with engaging in a multi-million dollar lobbying campaign in the U.S. at the direction of the Ukrainian Party of Regions' leader, Viktor Yanukovich, through which they generated tens of millions of dollars of income.

The U.S. Justice Department on Monday unveiled an indictment against George Papadopoulos, a foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign during the 2016 elections, who lied to the FBI about ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to the charges against him.

Additional charges include being unregistered agents of a foreign principal and making false and misleading statements. The two laundered money through scores of U.S. and foreign entities to hide payments from U.S. authorities between 2006 and through at least 2016.

Reports say that more than $75 million flowed through Manafort and Gates' offshore accounts.
