The charges the two are facing are not clear yet. According to the New York Times, Manafort walked into the FBI’s office at about 8:15 a.m. and was accompanied by his lawyer.

Per Daily Wire:

Manafort had been under investigation for violations of federal tax law, money laundering and allegations that he did not disclose his foreign lobbying.

The White House had no immediate comment. The two are expected in court later Monday to face whatever charges Mueller has filed.
