We just learned that Donald Trump’s former national security advisor, Michael T. Flynn, has been charged with making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigations about his communications with Russians. It’s the latest move for Mueller, who has already indicted the president’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his deputy.

Flynn will appear in a D.C. court for a plea hearing later this morning, Bloomberg reports, and he’s expected to plead guilty.
