Possible charges against Manafort, the former chairman of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, and his ex-business associate Rick Gates were not immediately known. 

The news was first reported by The New York Times.

NBC News confirmed on Friday that a federal grand jury in Washington had approved the first criminal charges in the special counsel’s probe, marking a significant milestone in an inquiry that has roiled Donald Trump’s presidency.
