Following Paul Manafort's surrender to the FBI, online searches for the words 'conspiracy' and 'collusion' spike

Paul Manafort's indictment and surrender to the FBI this morning has caused a spike in online searches for the meaning the words: "Conspiracy," "indictment" and "collusion."  

Merriam-Webster said "conspiracy" was looked up this morning about 1,500% more than it usually is. Searches for "indictment" were up 3,600%,  "Collusion" searches rose 800% the dictionary said.

The 31-page, 12-count indictment against former Trump campaign chairman Manafort and former Trump campaign official Rick Gates focuses on their years as political consultants and lobbyists working with Ukraine. It alleges they received tens of millions of dollars for their Ukraine work, and to hide that income, they laundered the money through "scores of United States and foreign corporations, partnerships, and bank accounts."

Here are the definitions of the searched-for words, according to Merriam-Webster:
--Conspiracy is an agreement between two or more people to commit an act prohibited by law.
--Indictment is the officially charging of someone with a crime.
--And collusion is "a secret agreement or cooperation especially for an illegal or deceitful purpose."
