Former Trump campaign manager Manafort pleads guilty, will cooperate with special counsel

In the past year, Mueller has secured pleas from a former United States national security adviser who lied to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about discussing sanctions with a Russian ambassador; a campaign aide who broached the idea of a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin; and another aide who was indicted alongside Manafort, but ultimately turned on him.

Paul Manafort, former campaign manager for Donald Trump, exits the E. Barrett Prettyman Federal Courthouse, Feb. 28, 2018, in Washington, DC. "It's very bad because he doesn't know what Manafort is saying and [Trump] can't count on Manafort saying things that the special counsel already knows". The FBI considered Steele a reliable source, but investigators can bolster any collusion case if Manafort can corroborate any of the claims.

Once again, Robert Mueller's "witch hunt" has caught itself a witch. That was also the day, you might recall, that Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to eight counts of his own.

Manafort could simply plead guilty to some or all charges without co-operating and still reach a deal. "[Ukrainian oligarch Rinat] Akhmetov called Manafort and asked him to work against me", Saakashvili, who touts himself as a pro-Western politician opposing Russian influence in the region, told Newsweek.

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has pleaded guilty to two federal charges as part of a cooperation deal with prosecutors.

"One of the reasons I respect Paul Manafort so much is he went through that trial - you know they make up stories".

The goal of Maezawa's project is for the artists to be inspired by the journey and create art about it when they go back to Earth. The art project called #dearMoon was presented in a video released shortly after he and Mr Musk announced the moon flight .

It's unclear whether any agreement with prosecutors would require him to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

He said that if Democrats take back the House this year, they must work to clean up Washington.

For the previous decade, the three men had worked together promoting pro-Russian political forces in Ukraine and boosting the political fortunes of Viktor Yanukovych, who was elected president of Ukraine in 2010.

"This had absolutely nothing to do with the President or his victorious 2016 Presidential campaign", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders in a statement.

But while the White House projected confidence about its position, some officials privately acknowledged that they could not be sure what Manafort might expose about the campaign or about interactions with Russians.

During the preseason, he connected on all three field goal attempts and both extra point tries. Gonzalez missed one extra point last season as a rookie in Cleveland.

Eisen said Sunday of Manafort, "For the first time, we have somebody who was at the infamous Trump Tower meeting". He also was a part of the Trump campaign when the Republican Party platform was changed in a way viewed as more favorable to Russian Federation because it did not include support for arming Ukraine.

"I can understand full well the interests of the American people, and then a significant number of senators who said. this is not directly related enough to his conduct with the presidency", Starr said about Clinton's impeachment proceedings in 1998.

There has been speculation that President Trump could pardon Manafort but that is now moot. Perhaps Manafort lost his will or the financial means to fight.

The hallmark of any prosecutor's approach to an organized crime case is the use of cooperating witnesses to move up the chain. Manafort pleaded guilty to those charges.

"I would say there is no prosecutor alive who's more rigorous than Bob", Eisen said, referring to Mueller. Giuliani said he spoke to Trump on Friday about Manafort's plea. "I know all about flipping, for 30, 40 years I've been watching flippers", Trump said. Trump's lawyers don't want their client to sit down for a face-to-face interview out of fear he would be accused of perjury.

Papadopoulos was the first campaign aide sentenced in Mueller's investigation, and he was also the person who triggered the initial Russian Federation investigation two years ago. Barring a presidential pardon, the 69-year-old was facing a maximum of 80 years in prison.

If Gordon lands in New England and can stay on the field - and that's a big "if" - he could be an instant threat for the Patriots. As for Gordon's hamstring - ESPN's Adam Schefter says he's healthy enough to play THIS SUNDAY if needed.

Trump last month praised his former aide for not entering into an agreement with prosecutors, as the president's. Mr Giuliani had floated the possibility of a pardon.
