Washington (CNN) - Paul Manafort intentionally lied to special counsel Robert Mueller's office, breaking the plea agreement that made him the star cooperator in the Russia probe, a federal judge found on Wednesday.
Manafort 'made multiple false statements to the FBI, the OSC and the grand jury concerning matters that were material to the investigation, including his contacts with his Russian associate during the campaign and later', Judge Amy Berman Jackson wrote on Wednesday.
Plea deal is off. Sentencing now looks on his guilty plea as ironclad. Decades in prison to follow.
Oh dear, poor fellow.
