Special counsel Robert Mueller filed new charges against Paul Manafort and Rick Gates on Thursday.

The charges for both men relate to income tax fraud and bank fraud.

Manafort and Gates were first charged by Mueller last October for conspiracy against the United States and conspiracy to launder money. (RELATED: Here’s The Indictment Against Paul Manafort And His Associate, Rick Gates)

Manafort was the former chairman of Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign. Gates also worked for the Trump campaign.

However, the charges in this indictment appear to be unrelated to either Trump or his campaign.

The Associated Press notes, “(t)he charges against Manafort and Gates don’t relate to any allegations of misconduct related to Trump’s campaign.”

The full indictment can be read here.
