Mueller’s Team Says Manafort Breached Plea Agreement
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s office declared Paul Manafort lied “on a variety of subject matters” to them and the FBI since pleading guilty to conspiracy and witness tampering charges, according to court filings made Monday. President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, assumed to be pivotal in Mueller’s probe into Russian election meddling, denied the allegation. After Manafort’s alleged violation, both the prosecution and defense have asked the judge to move forward on sentencing. The prosecution said they will reveal “the nature of the defendant’s crimes and lies” in a later sentencing memo.
