The legal trouble facing Paul Manafort, Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, may not end with the indictment brought by the special counsel last year. BuzzFeed reported Monday that federal officials “have identified more than $40 million in ‘suspicious’ financial transactions” involving Manafort. It’s a good time, then, to bring you the product of the past two weeks of Masthead coverage: The Corruption Issue, which we’ve housed on a special site created exclusively for Masthead readers.

The catalyst for these past couple weeks of coverage was Franklin Foer’s definitive story on Manafort. We worked with Frank and other Atlantic journalists to extend that story, focusing on the world that Manafort helped to bring about. Dive in to find original reporting, analysis, and commentary from our writers and editors.
