    Since the news of an indictment was leaked to CNN on Friday by Robert Mueller (which was sealed by the courts), everyone's been speculating about who will actually be charged. Smart money placed their bets on Paul Manafort, and as it turned out they were right. Manafort's longtime business associate, Rick Gates, was also indicted on charges including conspiracy against the United States, money laundering and working as unregistered foreign agents.

    In the midst of all this, it appears as though Tony Podesta, founder of the Podesta Group and brother of John Podesta, Hillary's former campaign chairman, is also being caught up in the investigation.
