White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders briefed reporters Monday, after President Donald Trump's former campaign chair, Paul Manafort, was indicted in the Russia probe led by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Manafort and a business associate, Rick Gates, have been charged with 12 counts related to money laundering, foreign lobbying and failing to report foreign bank and financial accounts, as well as one count of "conspiracy against the United States."
