Mueller: Paul Manafort Breached Plea Agreement
Can he handle the truth? Prosecutors for special counsel Robert Mueller claimed in a court filing yesterday that President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager lied to them about “a variety of subject matters” since pleading guilty to conspiracy charges in September. Manafort’s attorneys denied that he violated the plea deal, but agreed with prosecutors — who promised to detail “the nature of the defendant’s crimes and lies” — that sentencing should begin immediately. Manafort, thought to be a key player in the Russian election meddling probe, faces at least a decade in prison.
