Former Trump Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort Appears to Reach Plea Deal
According to Politico, President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has agreed to plead guilty in a foreign-lobbying and money laundering case brought by special counsel Robert Mueller.
The plea deal calls for a 10-year cap on how long Manafort will be sent to prison.
Many Trump aides and advisers have said they believe the president is likely to grant Manafort a pardon on all the charges.
The new charges mean that prosecutors have agreed to drop five counts, including money laundering and making false statements.
