Mueller: Ex-Trump campaign chair lied, broke plea agreement

Mueller says Manafort violated plea agreement by lying to investigators

All Paul Manafort had to do to keep his plea deal with special counsel Robert Mueller is tell the truth.

"The morning after stunning news revealed Mueller has rescinded his cooperation deal with former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, now accused of lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the president cried that the "$30,000,000 Witch Hunt continues and they've got nothing but ruined lives". According to a new court filing, however, the former campaign manager allegedly lied repeatedly to Mueller's investigators. "Heroes will come of this, and it won't be Mueller and his. awful Gang of Angry Democrats". He called for proceeding to a sentencing hearing. "Because the sentencing will be open to the public and people will be able to hear what exactly Manafort did and did not do".

Because the plea agreement requires fulfillment of "each and every one" of the obligations that Manafort made and prohibits any criminal activity prior to sentencing, Mueller stated in the filing that Manafort has breached the agreement. By pleading guilty, Manafort avoided a second trial on charges that he failed to disclose his lobbying in Washington on behalf of the Ukrainian government, and that he laundered money.

He wrote of manoeuvring to avoid the Indian authorities who patrol the waters near North Sentinel Island . Indian police have since arrested seven people for allegedly helping Chau reach the off-limits island .

"He believes he has provided truthful information and does not agree with the government's characterization or that he has breached the agreement", it says.

The president described Mueller as "only looking at one side and not the other" and said his team is "ruining lives for them refusing to lie".

Since pleading guilty, Manafort had met with prosecutors almost a dozen times, and though members of Mueller's team have been asking him about a wide range of topics, they're "not getting what they want", a source with knowledge of the discussions told ABC News.

That was his question to the outlet's legal analyst, Jeffrey Toobin, a former federal prosecutor who was stunned by claims of Manafort fibbing.

He made all eight of his fourth-quarter free throws, including the two from the flagrant foul on Portland's C.J. He scored 44 points on 13-of-19 shooting, also added 10 rebounds and nine assists.

In September, Manafort pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice and one count of conspiracy against the US. That means the judge overseeing his case will learn, in detail, of Manafort's alleged efforts to mislead investigators. He still faces a separate sentencing from a Virginia case where he was convicted of bank and tax fraud.

Manafort said in the same filing on Monday that he disagreed with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's assertion that he had lied, but both sides agreed the court should move ahead and sentence him for his crimes.

Trump also criticized the cost of the ongoing investigation.
