Word got out over the weekend that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation had yielded at least one indictment, and that an arrest and court appearance were imminent, so Monday morning the media descended on the DC federal courthouse.

It wasn’t long before we learned that Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, and his business partner Rick Gates, were going to appear before magistrate judge Deborah Robinson later that afternoon.

Manafort and Gates appeared to be handcuffed as they entered the courtroom, both with their hands behind their backs, but in fact the cuffs had just been removed before they came in.

Manafort and Gates are due back in court tomorrow, Thursday.
