Paul Manafort, the controversial ex-chairman of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, arrived at an FBI field office on Monday morning, shortly after The New York Times disclosed that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has ordered Manafort and his associate Rick Gates to surrender to authorities.

The Times first reported that Manafort and Gates were the targets of surrender orders on Monday:

Paul Manafort and his former business associate Rick Gates were told to surrender to federal authorities Monday morning, the first charges in a special counsel investigation, according to a person involved in the case.

The charges against Mr. Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman, and Mr. Gates, a business associate of Mr. Manafort, were not immediately clear but represent a significant escalation in a special counsel investigation that has cast a shadow over the president’s first year in office.

CNN reported on Friday that a federal grand jury in Washington, D.C., “approved the first charges in the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller” on Friday afternoon.

It would appear Manafort and Gates may be charged this week.
