Paul Manafort Is Giving Mueller’s Team Information On Roger Stone

Robert Mueller

His lawyers told the judge that they were eager to expedite the sentencing process, citing Manafort's confinement as a reason for the "significant issues" with his health.

Once the midterm elections are over, special counsel Robert Mueller is expected to deliver his conclusions on whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation and whether President Trump obstructed justice, CNN and Bloomberg reported this week. The reason, of course, is that he oversees special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, having been thrust into that prominent role when his boss, Attorney.

Ellis, though, expressed concern about waiting too long to schedule a sentencing hearing. Prosecutors had wanted to wait until Manafort's cooperation was complete before proceeding to sentencing, where he could face as many as 10 years on the Virginia charges.

Before the former Trump Campaign Chairman., he was in the Eastern District of Virginia.

After a grueling two-week trial in Virginia this August in which Manafort was found guilty on eight felony counts for financial crimes related to his unregistered lobbying work in Ukraine, Judge Ellis declared a mistrial on the remaining ten counts when the jury determined it was hopelessly deadlocked. A federal judge set his sentencing date on Friday.

Manafort pleaded guilty on September 15 in Washington and has been cooperating with Mueller's prosecutors as they attempt to determine if Russians worked with anyone in the Trump campaign to interfere in the election.

The four-time MVP's total, the second highest scored by a Lakers debutant, included 12 rebounds and six assists. As a playoff team last season, the Trail Blazers will be a good early test for the Lakers to start the season.

Manafort is now cooperating with prosecutors and that had been delaying his sentencing date.

Prosecutors for the government had argued that the court should delay sentencing until they determined that Manafort had fulfilled the requirements of his cooperation as set forth in the plea agreement.

Manafort had asked permission to wear a suit but Ellis rejected the request, saying he should be treated no differently from other defendants in custody after conviction.

"We don't need a special counsel".

U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson in Washington revoked Manafort's bail in June after prosecutors said he attempted to tamper with witnesses in his case.
