WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Federal investigators probing Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election charged President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort and another aide, Rick Gates, with money laundering on Monday.

A third former Trump adviser, George Papadopoulos, pleaded guilty in early October to lying to the FBI, it was announced on Monday.

It's bad form to be the last conspirator to give in and tell the prosecutors what you know. After a few more, they'll have enough evidence to no longer need to offer anyone else immunity. At that point, the holdout looks like a chump instead of a stand-up guy. Grin Azn

The guilty plea had a lot less to do with conscience, than it did with plea dealing down to almost no time in prison.

That is an absolute. In fact, it's safe to assume that Papadopoulos has been providing damaging evidence to the Feds for a couple of mths. I can't imagine how many of Trump's operators are sweating bullets now. I'm just very surprised that M Flynn wasn't included in these Mueller 1st round of indictments.

Oh, this is ripe. Now Trump can't remember meeting just a yr ago with Papadopoulos. Seriously, for those who deny that Reagan and Trump doesn't have anything in common are missing the mark. I don't recall. I don't recall. I don't recall.

Trump says recalls little about meeting where aide mentioned Russia

Asked about a 2016 meeting that included former adviser George Papadopoulos, Trump told reporters: "I don't remember much about that meeting. It was a very unimportant meeting."

Shades of Nixon saying "I don't recall" (he actually instructed his underlings to say that) and George HW Bush when he said he was "out of the loop".
