Judge Rules Trump Ex-Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort Lied Multiple Times To FBI, Mueller




A judge ruled on Wednesday that former Donald Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort lied to the FBI and special counsel Robert Mueller multiple times.

Manafort “intentionally made multiple false statements to the FBI, the OSC and the grand jury concerning matters that were material to the investigation,” Judge Amy Berman Jackson decided.

“The Office of Special Counsel is no longer bound by its obligations under the plea agreement, including its promise to support a reduction of the offense level in the calculation of the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines for acceptance of responsibility,” the judge wrote.
