The special counsel has been leading the investigation into potential Trump campaign collusion with the Russian government during the 2016 US presidential election.
Last Friday, the special counsel produced grand jury indictments for 13 Russian nationals, accusing them of operating a misinformation campaign to hurt Hillary Clinton's presidential effort.
As part of the new indictment, prosecutors claim that after Manafort and Gates saw their income dwindle from 2015 to at least January 2017 as a result of the loss of Yanukovych as a client, they "extracted money" from Manafort's USA real estate by using that property to obtain loans from multiple financial institutions.
Some of the fraud was possible because the men disguised their income as "loans" from shell corporations they ran, the prosecutors said.
Numerous allegations in the new counts of bank fraud are described in the original indictment. They also allegedly used money from their offshore accounts to pay for luxury goods, and, in Gates' case, for his mortgage and children's tuition.

Court filings go on to say Manafort and Gates "generated tens of millions of dollars" through the Ukrainian government but failed to disclose their work to federal authorities.
The new indictment comes just a day after Alex Van Der Zwaan, a Dutch lawyer and son-in-law of a Russian oligarch, pleaded guilty to lying to investigators about communications regarding Ukraine with Gates. Both have pleaded not guilty. The lawsuit was settled in August 2016 and the one-page filing in a NY court did not provide details of the terms.
After a two-month stretch that produced no additional charges, the new indictment represents the latest flurry of activity for Mueller's team in a one-week span. Mr Gates was also an official on the Trump campaign.
But they can only make a deal if they have valuable information that Mueller can use in other prosecutions. Manafort suspect that he promised Kalka, President of the Bank, Federal Savings Bank, work in the White house in exchange for housing loans in the amount of $16 million According to the channel, Manafort received from the Federal Savings Bank three loans in the period from late 2016 to early 2017.
