The special counsel investigating possible ties between President Donald Trumps Campaign and the Russian Government is broadening his scope.

The AP reports that special counsel Robert Mueller has taken over a separate criminal probe involving former Trump Chairman Paul Manafort. Manafort was ousted from the Trump campaign amid questions about his business dealings in Ukraine years ago.


Mueller may also expand the investigation into the roles of the Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in the termination of FBI director James Comey.
