Former Trump Campaign Chief Faces Arraignment in Virginia

President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman is scheduled for arraignment in a northern Virginia courthouse on charges including tax evasion and bank fraud.

The charges are part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian efforts to influence U.S. elections.
