Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort pleads guilty; will cooperate with Russia investigation



Former Trump campaign manager, Paul Manafort.

Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort pleaded guilty in a deal to resolve charges filed by special counsel Robert Mueller, and will cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigations.

CNBC informs that the deal came three days before the scheduled start of jury selection in U.S. District Court in Washington for Manafort’s second trial. The plea deal could ramp up the legal and political danger president Donald Trump is already facing, who is being investigated by Mueller for possible obstruction of justice.

Part of the deal states that Manafort must participate in interviews with investigators, provide documents and testify, if needed.

This is the latest guilty plea obtained by Mueller from Trump’s once-inner circle. The special counsel previously obtained guilty pleas to crimes from Trump’s ex-national security advisor Michael Flynn, campaign advisor George Papadopoulos and former Trump campaign official Rick Gates, who was a Manafort associate.

Last month, Trump’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty to charges brought by federal prosecutors in New York. Those included tax crimes and a campaign finance charge related to the hush money payment Cohen said he gave porn star Stormy Daniels in order to buy her silence about an affair she says she had with the president, ahead of the 2016 election.

El ex gerente de campaña de Trump Paul Manafort se declaró culpable en un acuerdo para resolver los cargos presentados por el abogado especial Robert Mueller, y cooperará con las investigaciones en curso del abogado especial Robert Mueller.

CNBC informa que el trato se produjo tres días antes del inicio programado de la selección del jurado en el Tribunal de Distrito de EE. UU. en Washington para el segundo juicio de Manafort. El acuerdo podría aumentar el peligro legal y político al que se enfrenta el presidente Donald Trump, quien está siendo investigado por Mueller por una posible obstrucción a la justicia.

Parte del acuerdo establece que Manafort debe participar en las entrevistas con los investigadores, proporcionar documentos y testificar, si es necesario.

Este es el último alegato de culpabilidad obtenido por Mueller del círculo una vez interno de Trump. El abogado especial obtuvo previamente declaraciones de culpabilidad por crímenes del ex asesor de seguridad nacional de Trump Michael Flynn, el asesor de campaña George Papadopoulos y el ex funcionario de la campaña de Trump Rick Gates, que era asociado de Manafort.

El mes pasado, el ex abogado personal de Trump, Michael Cohen, se declaró culpable de los cargos presentados por los fiscales federales en Nueva York. Esos delitos fiscales incluidos y un cargo de financiamiento de campaña relacionado con el pago de dinero secreto Cohen dijo que le dio a la estrella porno Stormy Daniels para comprar silencio sobre una aventura que dice tener con el presidente, antes de las elecciones de 2016.
