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


November 27, 2018

WASHINGTON — Special counsel Robert Mueller is accusing former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort of lying to federal investigators in the Russia probe in breach of his plea agreement, an extraordinary allegation that could expose Manafort to a lengthier prison sentence — and potentially more criminal charges.

The torpedoing of Manafort's plea deal, disclosed in a court filing Monday, also results in Mueller's team losing a witness from the top of Donald Trump's presidential campaign who was present for several key episodes under investigation. That includes a Trump Tower meeting involving Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer he was told had derogatory information on Democrat Hillary Clinton.
