A new defendant has been named in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe — Konstantin Kilimnik, a former aide to Manafort who has been suspected of having ties to Russian intelligence and worked for Manafort's company overseeing its office in Kiev. Mueller also brought new charges against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

The latest: The charges against both Manafort and Kilimnik include conspiracy and obstruction of justice charges in an alleged attempt to influence other's testimonies. Mueller also brought charges including conspiracy to launder money, acting as an unregistered foreign agent and lying to authorities against Manafort.
