Paul Manafort, who served as Donald Trump’s campaign chairman and is under investigation for his Russian connections, has retroactively registered with the Justice Department as a foreign agent.

In the DOJ filing Tuesday, Manafort said he was a foreign agent when he conducted consulting work for a Ukrainian political party that previously pro-Russian, CBS News reports

Manafort acknowledged he advised a Ukrainian party on how to interact with U.S. government officials, and his firm, DMP, received more than $17 million from the Party of Regions for his consulting work from 2012 to 2014.

Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, who is under investigation for his ties to Russia, also retroactively registered with the Justice Department as a foreign agent. 

Manafort resigned from Trump’s campaign in August when the Associated Press reported on his firm’s lobbying actions.

Manafort had denied colluding with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election.
