Special counsel Robert Mueller filed more charges against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his business partner Rick Gates. But we don't know what those charges are just yet. 

Paper records in D.C.'s federal court showed additional sealed charges in the case, according to multiple outlets.

Last week, prosecutors said they had new evidence Manafort had committed bank fraud and bank fraud conspiracy.

Both men have pleaded not guilty, but there are reports Gates may be negotiating a plea deal.
