WASHINGTON (AP) -- Court records indicate at least one new charge has been filed under seal in the case against President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman.

The filing indicates a sealed document was entered in Paul Manafort's case. No details such as who it's against or whether it's part of a plea deal are disclosed.

It comes after prosecutors revealed last week that they had uncovered "additional criminal conduct" that includes "a series of bank frauds and bank fraud conspiracies" related to a mortgage on one of Manafort's properties.

Prosecutors say Manafort obtained the mortgage fraudulently by providing the bank with "doctored profit and loss statements" for his political consulting business that overstated the company's income by "millions of dollars."

Manafort previously denied any wrongdoing regarding his mortgages.
