Judge Rules Paul Manafort Violated Plea Deal

A federal judge ruled Wednesday that Paul Manafort, the former campaign manager for President Trump, and President Trump’s long time friend has violated his plea agreement with the Office of the Special Counsel.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson determined that Bob Mueller provided sufficient evidence that Manafort had lied to investigators and prosecutors, and the grand jury. 3 of the 5 allegations were confirmed.

This opens the door for Manafort’s mandatory sentencing reduction to be completely negated.
