Washington - U.S. President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has agreed to plead guilty to two criminal counts as part of a deal with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, according to federal court documents released on Friday.

Manafort will plead guilty to one count of conspiracy against the United States and one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice, according to documents filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

Manafort, convicted by a Virginia jury last month on bank and tax fraud charges, was due to go on trial a second time on related charges in Washington.

Jury selection was due to begin on Monday on charges including conspiring to launder money, conspiring to defraud the United States, failing to register as a foreign agent and witness tampering.

Manafort’s decision could be a blow to Trump, who last month praised his former aide for not entering into an agreement with prosecutors, as the president’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen had.

Writing on Twitter on Aug. 22, Trump said, “Unlike Michael Cohen, he refused to ‘break’ - make up stories in order to get a ‘deal. Such respect for a brave man!”

If he didn't have anything to indict agent orange, you think he wouldn't have shut down his probe a long time ago?? Ale mai, he's holding his best stuff for last. I think we are in for a nice, big October surprise, ober chuchem.

"Another victim" He had a trial. Found guilty by a jury. Admitted to many crimes. Victim. Just where is your line? If a Nazi commits murder and joins the Trump organisation for a "short time" he becomes a victim?
Sad, very very sad that even a Yid could think this way. B'H that Democracy works at it best in the USA today. Republican Courts, Republican Dept of Justice, Republican Congress are doing their job.

"Victim" ? fyi the POTUS is a Rep. Just wait a few week when the Dems take over congress and you will see how a victim looks. Hillary was investigated for 24 years by the Republicans.

Wrong. He was at the meeting in Trump Tower when he and the rest committed Treason. Just read Bannon (Republican Chief Adviser to Trump) TREASON in the words of a Prominent Republican Trump Supporter.

"Trump profiling,Deep State" you forgot which-hunt this time. Please explain it to us plain UNEDUCATED people that the Republican Congress,FBI etc has a whichhunt against a R. POTUS. The same R Congress,FBI etc did not indict Obama or Hillary for 20 years? Why??? 37 people are indicted in 18 months. Not a single Obama Senior aid was ever in any trouble at all. Just Why is that?

Right wishful thinking. I remember you guys stating Mueller would wrap this up quicker than Nixon. Well here we are and its longer than the Nixon Watergate investigation. You also fail to explain what happens once Mueller throw's this big bomb shell of yours.. At best you'll get an impeachment and some more tweets. You need 2/3 to chuck him buddy. Keep on dreaming.

Bh so far the deep state is limited to anti Trump bullying. So far they have not gone as far as of yet as a communist deep state kinds of actions. So it doesn't really affect me despite its unfairness. Hence forth no reason to move.. Plus my family lives here.

But yes Putin is very good to frum jews BH

Silly argument. The feds can find something on anyone. If they did they find dirt. And its even more so if someone has complex business. Just because one is found guilty or pleads that doesn't mean he is this evil guy. They get you on technicalities.

I am suggesting the the police in Furegson were not allowed to target African americans for movig violations because of their skin color. And yes even though African americans did commit crimes. Noone denies that. You still can't target African americans. That's what racial profiling is. Its about targeting people who do really commit crimes and are indeed guilty yet you go after one particular group for small crimes.

Mueller for POTUS. Part of the Deal is: Manafort paying back to the US 45 million. (Mueller spent less than 14 million so far) Art Of The Deal by Mueller. Lets hope he will get many more Rich Whiches. MAGA.

Mueller's job is NOT to impeach. It's to investigate Russian interference. Moreover, almost no one believed it would wrap up quickly. Additionally, it takes a special chutzpah to call Manafort a victim when he worked for the Russian backed faction in Ukraine trying to enable the Russian takeover of a sovereign nation (albeit an Anti-Semitic one)

Idiot, if he had even an iota of anything on Trump in the past two years, don’t you think it would’ve come out by now??? You snowflakes never give up...but keep hoping. Revenge will be even sweeter when the probe finally gets closed with nothing on Trump!

Just because most of us ignore your screed most of the time, doesn't mean the tide is turning at VIN. The President has not been formally accused of ANYTHING - nor will he ever be - and he will blow over any Democrat opponent in 2020.

Manafort and his family have suffered enough for his deeds; are we any better? Look at the scandals, whereby Rabbonim are arrested for charity frauds, welfare frauds, financial frauds,, tax cheating, etc. The people on this board should be more empathetic and show some rachmonos to Manafort, as they would to a frum person, in the same situation. When you beat your breasts and say "Al Chet" this coming week, think of some of the uncivil comments expressed on this site.

Love the Hillary 24 years nonsense. Hillary was not investigated for 24 years. She wasn't on their radar till 2012

She ran a brutal campaign in the Dem Presidential Primary in 2008.
She was a US Senator from 2001
She was everybody's radar because of :Lewinsky. Travel-gate. Whitewater. Every bimbo-eruption.
She was the face of the 1993 Task Force on National Health Care Reform.
In 1992 she was referred as her husband's co-President.
(In 1982 her work with Rose Law Firm was criticized.)
(In 1974, she was a member of the Nixon impeachment inquiry staff in Washington, D.C. and advised the House Committee on the Judiciary during the Watergate scandal.)

You should calibrate your radar.

Very funny but she wasn't investigated for 26 years . Yes she has her enemies out to besmirch her but it's simply a lie on your part to say that the FBI is investigating her for 26 years . That's just you being your hyper self
