Daily Sabah (Turkey) - - Front Page -

U.S. Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s for­mer cam­paign chair­man, Paul Manafort, and a for­mer busi­ness as­so­ciate, Rick Gates, sur­ren­dered to fed­eral au­thor­i­ties yes­ter­day in the first charges stem­ming from the spe­cial in­ves­ti­ga­tion into pos­si­ble ties between Trump’s pres­i­den­tial cam­paign and Rus­sia. The charges, which have not been made pub­lic, are the first in spe­cial coun­sel Robert Mueller’s in­ves­ti­ga­tion into po­ten­tial co­or­di­na­tion between Rus­sia and the Trump cam­paign. The New York Times first re­ported that Gates and Manafort were sur­ren­der­ing Mon­day. Mueller was ap­pointed as spe­cial coun­sel in May to lead the Jus­tice Depart­ment’s in­ves­ti­ga­tion into whether the Krem­lin worked with as­so­ciates of the Trump cam­paign to tip the 2016 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion.
