A federal judge in Washington has ruled that one-time Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort lied to Robert Mueller, the grand jury and the F.B.I after his plea deal. So, Judge Amy Berman Jackson has voided it and Manafort could spend even longer in jail. And what’s important, the lies were in reference to meetings with a Russian.
From The Washington Post:
“The judge’s finding that Manafort, 69, breached his cooperation deal with prosecutors by lying after his guilty plea could add years to his prison sentence and came after a set of sealed court hearings.
“Manafort had denied intentionally lying after his plea deal, but U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson of the District found he lied in three of five areas alleged by prosecutors. She said she would factor in his deception on other topics at sentencing March 13.”
