The New York Times is reporting that Paul Manafort is surrendering himself to the U.S. Justice Dept.

Paul Manafort and his former business associate Rick Gates were told to surrender to federal authorities Monday morning, the first charges in a special counsel investigation, according to a person involved in the case. The charges against Mr. Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman, and Mr. Gates, a business associate of Mr. Manafort, were not immediately clear but represent a significant escalation in a special counsel investigation that has cast a shadow over the president’s first year in office.Mr. Gates is a longtime protégé and junior partner of Mr. Manafort.
