- Several court documents filed by special counsel Robert Mueller have been unsealed since Monday. The documents include an indictment against Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, and a plea agreement between early Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos and the government. Below, BI has embedded all of the Mueller documents that have been released so far. We’ll continue to update this post as new filings emerge.
A number of court documents filed by special counsel Robert Mueller’s office have been unsealed since Monday morning, when the indictment against Paul Manafort and Rick Gates was finally made public after days of speculation about who had been swept up in the Russia probe.
Hours later, Mueller’s office released documents about an early foreign policy adviser to President Donald Trump’s campaign who had largely flown under the radar: George Papadopoulos. According to the government’s statement of offense, he lied to the FBI in January about his contacts with Russia-linked foreign nationals during the election.
Papadopoulos pleaded guilty and became a cooperating witness, according to a plea agreement that was released alongside the statement of offense, criminal information, and transcript of his arraignment.
On Tuesday, the US District Court in DC unsealed the Manafort/Gates docket, which included their arrest warrants and the government’s memorandum designating the case as “complex,” outlining the men’s condition of release and indicating prosecutors’ intent to “use certain bank records.”
The docket unsealed on Tuesday said both men had received “millions of dollars” from Ukrainian and Russian oligarchs that would allow them “to live comfortably abroad” and therefore made them a flight risk. The two are currently under house arrest.
