The indictment has come in, and no surprise, it is Paul Manafort. According to CNN, he is turning himself in. He has left his home.

Now he’s turned himself in.

The indictment will be unsealed later today. Manafort had been under investigation for violating federal tax law, for money laundering, and for failing to appropriately disclose his foreign lobbying. Manafort, recall, chose Pence as Trump’s VP.

Manafort’s former business partner and protégé, Rick Gates, has also been asked to turn himself in, according to the Times. It’s noteworthy that, even after Paul Manafort was pushed out as Trump’s campaign chair, Rick Gates stayed on, working for the RNC up until the inauguration. The Daily Beast reports that Gates was still making visits to the White House as last as June of this year.

Trump is reacting, as you might expect Trump to react:

MSNBC is also reporting that Manafort has been charged with Conspiracy against the United States.

We’ll have more throughout the day.
