Are unrelated charges against Manafort an attempt to extort testimony against the President?

NY Times:

Manafort Is Charged With Tax Fraud and Money Laundering

  • Paul Manafort and his business partner, Rick Gates, both surrendered to federal authorities on Monday.
  • They are the first to be charged in a special counsel investigation that has cast a shadow over President Trump’s first year in office.
In answer to my question, I think that maybe the purpose of the indictments.  The case so far has nothing to do with the campaign or collusion with the Russians.  It relates to work he once did with some people in Ukraine. 

Mueller has gathered around him people who have abused the prosecutorial process in the past and this may fit that pattern.
