Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort used his Palm Beach Gardens home as the mailing address for a number of companies included in Monday’s indictment and spent more than $1 million on home improvements in Florida.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller charged Manafort and his business associate Rick Gates as part of the Trump-Russian collusion investigation. According to the 12-count indictment, Manfort and Gates allegedly evaded taxes on millions of dollars they earned as lobbyists and consultants for Ukrainian officials. Both pleaded not guilty on Monday.

From 2006 to 2016, Manafort and Gates wired more than $21 million into the United States from offshore accounts, all income on which they paid no federal income tax, according to the indictment.

Manafort used the 5,200-square-foot home at 10 St. James Drive for Daisy Manafort LLC, John Hannah LLC, Lilred LLC and MC Soho Holdings LLC, all listed in the indictment, according to the Daily Business Review.

A Florida-based home automation, lighting and home entertainment company received $1.3 million between 2011 and 2013. Wire transfers ranged from $6,200 to $290,000. An unnamed Florida contractor also received about $432,000 in wire transfers during the same period, the newspaper reported.
