Mueller: New indictments filed against Manafort names ally with Russian intel ties
 
(CNN)Prosecutors have filed a new indictment against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort that also names as a defendant Konstantin Kilimnik, a close business colleague of Manafort's who prosecutors have said has close ties to Russian intelligence.

The indictment includes two new charges against both Manafort and Kilimnik: a count of obstruction of justice and a count of conspiracy to obstruct justice, meaning the two allegedly worked together to tamper with witnesses.

Kilimnik, 48, of Moscow, is the 20th person to face charges in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. So far, 20 people and three companies have been charged.

Earlier this week, Mueller's office accused Manafort of attempting to get witnesses to lie for him in court. A witness told investigators recently that Manafort wanted them to commit perjury about a lobbying effort they worked on for him in the US, a filing in DC District Court said.

Manafort is currently out on house arrest and a $10 million unsecured bail. He awaits a trial in Virginia that is scheduled for late July and a trial in DC scheduled to begin in September.

Manafort has already been charged with conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false and misleading Foreign Agents Registration Act statements and false statements. Friday's indictment does not change the counts already against him.

This story is breaking and will be updated.

And he waited till Donnie was on foreign soil, just about to head into the G7 meeting, right after asking for Putin to have a seat at the table. Our allies are going to love this.

Its great.

Thank God we can have a thread telling us nothing new beyond "the accusations are now part of a superseding indictment".

Seems to me Mueller is looking for any past relationships to make some kinda of link of Russians to Trump. Sounds like true desperation.
