Former Trump Aides Charged as Prosecutors Reveal New Campaign Ties With Russia - The New York Times

The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, announced charges on Monday against three advisers to President Trump’s campaign and laid out the most explicit evidence to date that his campaign was eager to coordinate with the Russian government to damage his rival, Hillary Clinton.
