Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller released an official indictment of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and his longtime aide Rick Gates, and according to the Associated Press, former campaign aide George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty to lying to FBI agents. 

According to Vox, the charges are not directly related to the 2016 election or "possible collusion with the Trump campaign and the Russian government," but rather Manafort's previous career.

The indictment includes 12 charges against the men: conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, seven separate counts of failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts, serving as an unregistered agent of a foreign principal, making false and misleading statements under the Foreign Agent Registration Act, and making false statements to federal investigators.
The indictment accuses Manafort and Gates of, between 2006 and 2015, acting as "unregistered agents of the Government of Ukraine, the Party of Regions (a Ukrainian political party whose leader Victor Yanukovych was President from 2010 to 2014), Yanukovych, and the Opposition Block (a successor to the Party of Regions that formed in 2014 when Yanukovych fled to Russia)."

President Trump has denied all accusation that he or his campaign colluded with the Russians.

But critics argue this is proof that the Trump campaign did, in fact, collude with the Russians.
