Mueller Says Manafort Violated Plea Agreement


Special Counsel Robert Mueller said in a new filing Monday that Paul Manafort, President Trump’s one-time campaign chairman, violated his plea agreement by lying to federal prosecutors.

“After signing the plea agreement, Manafort committed federal crimes by lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Special Counsel’s Office on a variety of subject matters, which constitute breaches of the agreement,” Mueller’s team said in a joint status report with Paul Manafort’s defense attorneys filed late Monday.
