Paul Manafort, a former campaign manager for President Donald Trump, and Manafort’s business partner are expected to become the first people charged in the broad investigation into Russian meddling with the U.S. election, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Charges against Manafort and partner Rick Gates indicate that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe is intensifying and could pose a danger to the White House.

Manafort will face tax charges and other offenses, the person said.
