Federal prosecutors are charging charges against Democratic power brokers in the probe coupled to Manafort

In addition, these sources said, prosecutors in the US prosecutor for the southern district of New York are considering taking action against the law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, where Craig was a partner during the investigated activity. Prosecutors are considering a civil arrangement with the company or a deferred prosecution agreement with Skadden, according to these sources.

A Craig lawyer, who left Skadden in April and was a White House adviser to President Barack Obama in the first year of that administration, said his client "did not need to register under the Foreign Agent Registration Act." A Skadden spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment.

A deferred prosecution agreement is an agreement not to prosecute an entity as long as the defendant complies with the terms of the agreement and in many cases dictates that the defendant should not commit any new crimes for the duration of the agreement. The costs in the agreement are then left out at the end of the period.

The investigation with Craig and Skadden was referred by federal prosecutors in New York earlier this year by the office of the special counselor Robert Mueller, CNN reported in August.
