Robert Mueller's team of special investigators have charged three people with wrong doing involving the 2016 election. For the first time in U.S. history another nation state has been charged with directing the results of a democratic country. Experts suggest Muellers line of action points to misconduct beyond the ousted national security adviser Michael Flynn. 

The pretorianesk Trump group provided the augur for politics to come in the United States which has so far proved to be what everyone expected –more Trump business. 

So Far this week, three men have been arrested associated with Mueller's investigation including, Paul Manafort, the Trump campaign's onetime manager. 

Just like his one-time bosses indiscretions, Manafort too has a like mind. During the investigation Mueller's people found fake passports, telephone numbers and email accounts under various names. He is considered a flight risk due to the double sided life Manafort and his motleys lived. 

Rick Gates and Manafort both surrendered to the FBI on Monday. The two men were charged with a 12-counts that included tax fraud, money laundering, Conspiracy against the United States, all of which are linked to work for a Ukrainian politician in association with Russian President Vladimir Putin. 

Manafort operated above the law for more than a decade. He held three passports and submitted applications for more than 10 others over the past few years. The former Trump campaign manager is also very wealthy with assets said to fluctuate widely. 

Both Manafort and Gates his right hand flunkie were confined to home arrest until bond is set.
