From Morning Report, 7:10 am on 31 October 2017

Donald Trump's controversial former campaign manager Paul Manafort and another former campaign aide Rick Gates have been arrested by the FBI team investigating Russian interference in last year's presidential election. Mr Manafort and Mr Gates surrendered themselves to the FBI a few hours ago and are due to make an appearance in a New York court soon. However, perhaps of more significance, it emerged that former Trump campaign advisor George Papadopoulos had pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI earlier this year during the investigation. To explain the latest revelations US correspondent Kevin McAleese joins us.
