Oct. 30, 2017 – A look at the business dealings, influence and federal investigation into Trump’s former campaign manager, who, along with a business associate, is the first person to be indicted in Robert Mueller’s investigation.

Special counsel Robert Mueller announced Monday the indictments of Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, and Manafort’s former business associate, Rick Gates. Manafort joined the Trump campaign on March 29, 2016. By the time he resigned as campaign manager less than five months later, Trump had secured the Republican Party’s presidential nomination, and Russian efforts to defeat Hillary Clinton in the general election were well underway. Manafort departed amid allegations that he had received millions of dollars in improper payments from Ukraine’s pro-Putin former president.

This Manafort Timeline allows readers to review the entries in our main Trump-Russia Timeline that relate specifically to Manafort. We’ll continue to update both timelines as new information is revealed.
