Trump's former campaign manager and convention manager Paul Manafort has pleaded guilty to at least 2 out of 7 charges he was facing in the District of Columbia.
In exchange for pleading guilty to one count of conspiracy against the United States and one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice, Manafort has reportedly agreed to cooperate with special prosecutor Robert Mueller.
From the Associated Press:
Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has cut a “cooperation agreement” with prosecutors and intends to plead guilty to charges related to his Ukrainian consulting work.
The deal allows Manafort to avoid a second trial that had been scheduled to start next week in Washington. [...]
Prosecutor Andrew Weissman said in court Friday that Manafort had struck a “cooperation agreement.” He did not elaborate on the agreement.
We don't know what Manafort's cooperation agreement compels him to disclose, but early reports suggests it's long and extraordinarily specific.
Based on the details of his "cooperation agreement," this could be huge. Manafort was inside the infamous meeting at Trump Tower when Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner met with the Russians who promised to deliver dirt on Hillary Clinton.
It's possible prosecutors now know everything Manafort knows about that meeting.
