Paul Manafort, President Trump's former campaign chairman, is under fire amid new reports that he secretly worked to advance Russian interests for years before he joined Trump's presidential campaign last April.
Manafort's ties to foreign oligarchs and dictators have raised questions for decades, but his work for the Trump campaign likely has him under FBI investigation.
