    The former Trump campaign manager has been indicted on 12 counts, including the "conspiracy against the US" and "conspiracy to launder money."

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Former Trump Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort and the Office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller have reached a deal on a bail agreement for Manafort, according to court documents filed on Thursday.

    The documents indicate that under the agreement Manafort would forfeit four properties worth nearly $12 million if he fails to appear in court, would not travel internationally, and would advise the court of all domestic travel 24 hours in advance, among others.

    After the indictments against Manafort and campaign deputy Richard Gates were filed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is tasked with investigating allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 US election, the two men were ordered to remain under house arrest.

    Manafort and campaign deputy Richard Gates face charges on 12 counts, including money laundering and failure to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) of 1938 for their work for the Ukrainian government, with both men pleading not guilty.
