Special Counsel: Manafort Repeatedly Lied to FBI in Violation of Plea Agreement

Paul Manafort

President Trump’s former campaign chief, Paul Manafort, repeatedly lied to the FBI in violation of a plea agreement he reached with special counsel prosecutors about two months ago, according to a court filing late Monday.

Robert Mueller’s special counsel team wrote that Manafort’s “crimes and lies” about “a variety of subject matters” is a breach of his agreement, the New York Times reports.  

Since he violated the agreement, the prosecutors said, Manafort does not deserve leniency when he is sentenced.

It’s unclear what prosecutors believe Manafort lied about, but his lawyers have an opportunity to challenge the prosecutors’ allegations.

Manafort’s lawyers maintain he did what he was asked and that he “believes he has provided truthful information,”

Judge Amy Berman Jackson of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia is expected to soon announce a sentencing date for Manafort, who has been in solitary confinement in a jail in Alexandria, Va.
