On Monday, Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his associate Rick Gates, were indicted with money laundering, conspiracy against the U.S. and ten other charges, as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian interference of the presidential election.

In separate news, former foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign George Papadopolous said he was guilty of lying to the F.B.I. about being in touch with a Russian professor that had contact with the Kremlin.

Meanwhile, there are further revelations coming in about the infamous dossier on Trump, created by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, who had been hired by intelligence firm Fusion GPS. The Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee had given money to GPS for the research. Conservative site Washington Free Beacon had also hired Fusion GPS for unrelated research.

We lay out the timeline on the dossier, and update you on the latest on the indictment.
