BREAKING: Mueller Claims Manafort Breached Plea Deal by Lying to Investigators
Special Counsel Robert Mueller is on a rampage and he won’t stop until everybody who helped elect Donald Trump goes bankrupt and ends up behind bars.
Mueller is now accusing Trump’s former campaign Chairman Paul Manafort of breaching his plea deal by lying to investigators.
Far-left Politico reported:
Special counsel Robert Mueller is accusing former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort of violating the plea deal he agreed to earlier this year by repeatedly lying to prosecutors and FBI agents during recent debriefing sessions.
In a report filed with a federal judge Monday evening, Mueller’s office alleged that Manafort “committed federal crimes by lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Special Counsel’s Office on a variety of subject matters.“
Prosecutors said the alleged lies leave Manafort exposed to the possibility of a more severe prison sentence under federal guidelines, but they did not elaborate on what exactly he allegedly lied about.
Manafort’s defense team said: “He believes he has provided truthful information“ and tried to “live up to his cooperation obligations.“
Mueller’s prosecutors rested their case in August on day 10 of the bank fraud and tax evasion trial against Paul Manafort which played out in an Alexandria, VA courtroom.
The corrupt Obama-appointed judge Amy Berman Jackson threw Manafort into solitary confinement while he awaited his trial even though he posted an $11.65 million bail package.
Manafort appeared in a wheelchair in a courtroom in October where he learned he will be sentenced on February 8th.
Judge T.S. Ellis is also set to dismiss the 10 charges on which the jury was unable to reach a verdict during the trial over the summer.
Manafort was facing about 10 years in prison for the 8 counts the jury found him guilty on in August.
Mueller’s prosecutors, however, were able to bring those charges back had Manafort not cooperated in the meantime which would increase Manafort’s jail time. It appears that is what Mueller’s strategy is here by claiming Manafort lied to investigators.
