Manafort kept working in Ukraine after Mueller indictment, transcript shows

The newly released transcript of a sealed hearing held earlier this week reveals for the first time that former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort continued working for at least one political client in Ukraine into 2018, after he had already been indicted in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

During the sealed hearing, which was held to discuss Manafort's alleged lies to the special counsel, Prosecutor Andrew Weissman referred to "2018 work that he did with respect to polling in Ukraine," according to the redacted transcript.

Manafort was indicted by a federal grand jury in Washington, D.C. in October 2017. He and partner Rick Gates, who also worked for the Trump campaign, were charged with money laundering, bank fraud and conspiracy against the U.S.

After Manafort was convicted on federal charges in a related case in Virginia in 2018, he agreed to a plea deal with prosecutors on the D.C. charges, pleading guilty to conspiracy and witness tampering.

2. Maybe Manafort needs to be incarcerated in a higher security facility?

He seems incorrigible and not at all recalcitrant. Recividistic, even.
