Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election is heating up. So far it has seen George Papadopolous, Trump's former foreign policy adviser, plead guilty to lying to the FBI. Michael Flynn, President Donald Trump's former national security adviser, has also plead guilty to lying to the FBI about contacts he had with the Russian ambassador before Trump took office.
While Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign manager, and his business associate Rick Gates, have been charged with an indictment for money laundering, tax evasion, failure to register as agents for foreign interests and conspiracy to defraud the US government. They have plead not guilty and placed under house arrest. Though Manafort recently breached the conditions of his bail by working on an op-ed with a Russian who has ties to Russia's intelligence agency.
A fifth man, Joseph Mifsud, a professor who allegedly offered Papadopoulos thousands of emails relating to Hillary Clinton on behalf of the Russian government has reportedly gone to ground.
