Mueller Slaps Manafort With New Indictment
Paul Manafort, President Trump's former campaign manager, was hit with another indictment today from Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

According to CNBC

Special counsel Robert Mueller filed new witness tampering criminal charges against ex-Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort as well as Russian citizen Konstantin Kilimnik as a defendant.

The superseding indictment lodged by a grand jury sitting in federal court in Washington, DC, came days after Mueller asked the judge in Manafort's case to revoke his bail and jail him because of an alleged effort to tamper with witnesses.

Manafort and Kilimnik were both hit with new charges accusing of using intimidation or force against a witness to obstruct justice, and also with tampering with a witness, victim or informant.

Lawyers for Manafort did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

This is another blow to Manafort's defense and what looks to be another attempt by the Mueller team to get Manafort to turn on Trump.
