Manafort Found to Have Lied to Prosecutors While Under a Cooperation Agreement

Mandel Ngan/Agence France-Presse — Getty Images WASHINGTON — A federal judge ruled on Wednesday that Paul Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman, had breached his plea agreement by lying multiple times to prosecutors after pledging to cooperate with the special counsel’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. The decision by Judge Amy Berman Jackson of United States District Court in Washington may affect the severity of punishment that awaits Mr. Manafort. Judge Jackson is scheduled to sentence him next month on two conspiracy counts, and he is also awaiting sentencing for eight other counts in a related fraud case. After Mr. Manafort agreed in September to cooperate with the office of the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, the judge found, he lied about his contacts with a Russian associate during the campaign and after the election. Judge Jackson decided that prosecutors failed to prove that Mr. Manafort, 69, had deceived them about two other matters: Mr. Kilimnik’s role in a conspiracy with Mr. Manafort to obstruct justice, and whether Mr. Manafort had been in contact with Trump administration officials. Although the defense won on those points, the judge’s split decision bodes poorly for Mr. Manafort. But like transcripts of earlier hearings, it is likely to be heavily redacted to protect the secrecy of the special counsel’s inquiry. The prosecutors also told the judge that Mr. Manafort deceived them about transferring Trump campaign polling data to Mr. Kilimnik during the campaign. Mr. Manafort’s lawyers had suggested that Mr. Manafort had only wanted to share public data in the interest of promoting himself and maybe winning lucrative work overseas. He suggested that Mr. Manafort might have been trying to cover up the data transfer because it might hurt his chances of winning a presidential pardon for his crimes.

Manafort Accused of Sharing Trump Polling Data With Russian Associate

Carlo Allegri/Reuters WASHINGTON — As a top official in President Trump’s campaign, Paul Manafort shared political polling data with a business associate tied to Russian intelligence, according to a court filing unsealed on Tuesday. The document also revealed that during the campaign, Mr. Manafort and his Russian associate, Konstantin V. Kilimnik, discussed a plan for peace in Ukraine. Prosecutors and the news media have already documented a string of encounters between Russian operatives and Trump campaign associates dating from the early months of Mr. Trump’s bid for the presidency, including the now-famous meeting at Trump Tower in Manhattan with a Russian lawyer promising damaging information on Hillary Clinton. Most of the data was public, but some of it was developed by a private polling firm working for the campaign, according to the person. The oligarchs had financed Russian-aligned Ukrainian political parties that had hired Mr. Manafort as a political consultant. The surprise disclosures about Mr. Manafort were the latest in two years of steady revelations about contacts between associates of Mr. Trump’s and Russian officials or operatives. The two men continued working together over the next three years as Mr. Manafort’s financial troubles grew and investigators began to investigate a fraud scheme that eventually led to his conviction for 10 felonies. In August 2016, apparently just before Mr. Manafort was fired from the Trump campaign, he and Mr. Kilimnik met to discuss a plan for Ukraine that seemed to further Russia’s interests. In an interview on Tuesday, Mr. Artemenko said that investigators working for Mr. Mueller had questioned him extensively about his efforts to promote that plan. The prosecutors could also decide to file new charges against Mr. Manafort for lying to them, but apparently they do not plan to do so, according to Tuesday’s filing.

On Politics: Trump Says He’ll Delay State of the Union Until After Shutdown

Good Thursday morning. Here are some of the stories making news in Washington and politics today. _____________________ • President Trump said he would deliver his State of the Union address after the federal government reopens, capping a day of brinkmanship with Speaker Nancy Pelosi. His apparent capitulation came even as House Democrats said they were prepared to give him a substantial sum of money for border security — but not for a wall, and not until he agreed to reopen the government. His lawyer cited the president’s attacks on Mr. Cohen’s family. • Lawyers representing Paul Manafort strongly denied claims by the special counsel’s prosecutors that Mr. Manafort repeatedly lied to them, stating that the prosecutors had wrongly interpreted honest memory lapses and innocent misstatements. candidate who narrowly won his election. The episode, which stunned Democrats, underlines Mr. Biden’s vulnerabilities in the fight for his party’s presidential nomination. • Representative Sheila Jackson Lee, a Democrat from Texas, will resign as chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation after facing fallout from a lawsuit claiming that she fired an aide who said she was sexually assaulted by a supervisor at the foundation. • Pete Buttigieg, the 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Ind., announced that he was entering the Democratic presidential primary.

Analysis: Unredacted Paul Manafort filing hints at collusion

Washington (CNN)Lawyers working for former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort accidentally revealed on Tuesday the clearest public evidence of coordination between the campaign and Russians, adding new details to the murky mosaic of potential collusion in 2016 -- including sharing polling data with an alleged Russian operative. Many of their contacts happened while the Russian government was aggressively meddling in the US election. At the time, Manafort told CNN in a statement, "that is 100% not true, at least as far as me." For the first time, the public learned that Manafort shared "polling data" about the 2016 campaign with his Russian friend. There aren't any additional details -- all this tells us is that Mueller believes that Manafort fed polling data to Kilimnik, possibly even polls commissioned by the Trump campaign. Polling data is a key part of any modern political operation -- presidential campaigns and outside groups like super PACs spend millions of dollars on polls. "After being shown documents, Mr. Manafort 'conceded' that he discussed or may have discussed a Ukraine peace plan with Mr. Kilimnik on more than one occasion," the filing said. The news that Manafort was in talks with Kilimnik about a "Ukraine peace plan" is interesting, because it's not the first time the Ukraine conflict became an issue inside Trump's orbit. At the time, Manafort denied that the Trump campaign was involved. There aren't any publicly known ties between Artemenko and Kilimnik, though Kilimnik is an insider in Ukrainian political circles and has relationships with many lawmakers there.
