The Latest from Mueller

There has been another indictment in Special Counsel Bob Mueller's Russia investigation this morning:

Specifically, van der Zwaan is alleged to have misled the FBI about his contact with Rick Gates, who is rumored to be close to finalizing a plea deal with Mueller.

In other news, Mueller has reportedly been scrutinizing more of Paul Manafort's and Jared Kushner's respective foreign financial transactions.

Jason Leopold, Anthony Cormier, and Tanya Kozyreva at BuzzFeed: Manafort Under Scrutiny for $40 Million in "Suspicious" Transactions. "Federal law enforcement officials have identified more than $40 million in 'suspicious' financial transactions to and from companies controlled by [Donald] Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort — a much larger sum than was cited in his October indictment on money laundering charges. ...Last week, Mueller's team told a judge that it had evidence Manafort committed bank fraud, and news organizations have reported that the special counsel may be preparing additional charges."

Caitlin MacNeal at TPM: Mueller Team Looking at Kushner Contacts with Foreign Investors. "Special counsel Robert Mueller's team is looking into Jared Kushner's contacts with foreign investors during the presidential transition after [Donald] Trump won the election, CNN reported Monday evening. It was previously reported that the special counsel's team was looking at Kushner's contacts with Russians, but the new report from CNN indicates that Mueller is now looking at Kushner's contacts with other foreign individuals as well."

Welp. The investigation definitely continues!
