The special counsel’s office has released an affidavit by FBI agents detailing Paul Manafort’s lies to federal prosecutors since he agreed to cooperate with the government.
CBS News: “Manafort lied about several things in breach of his plea deal, including his contact with Konstantin Kilimnik, who ran Manafort’s office in Kiev. Kilimnik, who has ties to Russian intelligence, was indicted in June. Much of the information about Kilimnik was redacted in the filing, although Manafort admitted he conspired with Kilimnik to obstruct justice.”
“The affidavit also addressed another allegation in the special counsel’s December memo: while Manafort said he had no ‘direct or indirect communications’ with anyone in the Trump administration and never ‘asked anyone to try to communicate a message to anyone in the Administration,’ the special counsel says he was lying about this, too.”Save to Favorites
