Trump Lights Up Mueller Again After Special Counsel Accuses Manafort of Lying

Breaking Court filing details stunning development in Mueller investigation

He is the highest-profile witness the Mueller team has charged with crimes as they proceed with the Russian Federation investigation, which was opened to uncover any evidence members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation to sway the 2016 presidential election.

"Heroes will come of this, and it won't be Mueller and his awful Gang of Angry Democrats", Trump wrote.

Still, Cotter said, it did not mean Manafort's cooperation had not been of any value, noting that he may have led Mueller to other sources of information.

He also said that Manafort's plea agreement is "very, very complicated" because Mueller's team had Manafort plead guilty to state crimes in New Jersey, New York and California, in addition to federal crimes.

"The Phony Witch Hunt continues, but Mueller and his gang of Angry Dems are only looking at one side, not the other", Trump tweeted Tuesday morning. "Wait until it comes out how horribly & viciously they are treating people, ruining lives for them refusing to lie".

Since pleading guilty, Manafort had met with prosecutors almost a dozen times, and though members of Mueller's team have been asking him about a wide range of topics, they're "not getting what they want", a source with knowledge of the discussions told ABC News. Look at their past, and look where they come from.

He said the question now is if there is going to be a trial over what Manafort allegedly lied about, and if so, what information will be revealed in that trial. He was found guilty on eight counts, including tax fraud, money laundering and lying to the government. Let these bad people go back to the Clinton Foundation and "Justice" Department!

Manafort denied doing so intentionally, but both sides agreed in a court filing that U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson of the District should set sentencing immediately.

They said he "committed federal crimes by lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Special Counsel's Office on a variety of subject matters, which constitute breaches of the agreement".

Manafort was a long-time Republican political consultant who made tens of millions of dollars working for pro-Kremlin politicians in Ukraine before joining the Trump campaign in March 2016, promising to work for free. "You can expect the judge, who has already had some harsh words for Manafort when he violated his bond conditions, tot are this conduct into account at sentencing".

The only reasonable explanation as to why Manafort would decide not to cooperate with Mueller, thus ensuring that his criminal sentence is much longer in length - perhaps one that amounts to a life sentence, given that Manafort is 69-years-old - is that he is now relying on a presidential pardon.
