The indictments came down from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation team: Paul Manafort and his associate Rick Gates, both charged with offenses ranging from failing to register as foreign lobbyists to money laundering. Summoned to court in Washington, D.C., both entered not guilty pleas.

Papadopolous was a foreign policy advisor and his guilty plea has unnerved the Trump White House because of concerns that he has been cooperating with the FBI and Mueller’s team in the investigation. The length of time is a problem: Papadopolous was arrested in July of this year. The White House is a very tense place to be right now because everyone knows that there is more to come. The hot mess in Washington continues.
Representatives from Facebook, Twitter, and Google are to appear in Washington today to explain how the extent of Russian backed news stories and posts on their networks.
