A federal grand jury has approved 32 new charges from Robert Mueller again Paul Manafort and Rick Gates today. You can read the superseding indictment just filed today, including all 32 charges, below. Or you can access and download the document directly from the Department of Justice’s website here. The description for the document reads: “Paul J. Manafort, Jr., of Alexandria, Va., and Richard W. Gates III, of Richmond, Va., were indicted by a federal grand jury on Feb. 22, 2018, in the Eastern District of Virginia. The indictment contains 32 counts: 16 counts related to false individual income tax returns, seven counts of failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts, five counts of bank fraud conspiracy, and four counts of bank fraud.”
A superseding indictment is an indictment with new charges or accusations, after new evidence has become available. It adds charges or defendants to an earlier indictment. These may be issued if new information has been found. Sometimes more than one superseding indictment might be added.
In this indictment, counts 6 through 10 and 15 through 32 are against Gates, and counts 1 through 5, 11 through 14, and 24 through 32 are against Manafort.
