    Trump Associates Indicted Convicted or Who Pleaded Guilty During His Presidency

    When President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was convicted on eight felony counts on Aug. 21, 2018, he became the first member of Trump’s campaign to be found guilty in court. Several others have pleaded guilty, including former Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen, who did so within minutes of Manafort’s conviction, and again on Nov. 29, 2018. 

    The guilty pleas or convictions of five Trump associates come as special counsel Robert Mueller continues to investigate Russian attempts to influence the 2016 presidential election, possible coordination by Trump’s campaign, and other issues arising from the probe. On Jan. 25, Roger Stone became the sixth Trump aide to be charged in Mueller's investigation. The seven-count indictment against Stone, Trump's long-time confidant, accuses him of witness tampering, obstruction and false statements about his interactions related to WikiLeaks.
