Former Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort pleads guilty to conspiracy charges

Source: CNBC

Paul Manafort, who once headed President Donald Trump's campaign, pleaded guilty Friday to conspiracy charges and has agreed to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigations under a new plea deal.

Manafort's plea deal with Mueller, which dramatically ramps up the legal and political danger already facing Trump, came just three days before Manafort was set to begin jury selection for the second of his two federal criminal trials.

Prosecutors said the deal includes a 17-page cooperation agreement with Mueller.

2. I;d love to see or hear about the details of the "17 page cooperation agreement".

What is he cooperating on, inquiring minds really want to know. Hope he agrees to tell the "good stuff", how dt conspired with russian operatives to win the election.

3. ** felony counts cut down from 7 to only 2.....Trump avoids bad headlines........





But these are serious (IMHO)....



.......................Legal experts quickly spun the deal as a win for all the parties involved. Manafort gets a potentially shorter sentence and lessens his legal bills. Trump avoids several weeks of bad headlines ahead of the midterm elections about his corrupt former campaign aide. And Mueller faced with Trump's constant claims that his probe is a witch hunt gets to show yet again that his charges are not fabricated and can now divert resources to other elements of his Russia probe.


Prosecutors signaled the pending deal Friday morning, filing a new slimmed-down set of charges against Manafort, reining in the felony counts pending against him in D.C. from seven to just two: conspiracy against the U.S. and conspiracy to obstruct justice.

6. Conspiracy NOT "collusion"!

The moron and his pals keeps saying "Collusion isn't a crime". Yeah, we know that BUT "conspiracy to collude" is! BUSTED!

And Cohen is talking to Mueller now too. The moron will not have a relaxing weekend.

"Cooperation." I like that word.
