Paul Manafort, a former campaign manager for President Donald Trump, and his business partner pleaded not guilty Monday to charges of money laundering and conspiracy against the United States, the most serious step yet in a special counsel investigation into Russian links with Trump’s 2016 White House campaign.

They are the first announced charges from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Mueller has been given the authority to prosecute any alleged crimes that result from the course of the investigation.
