The charges were announced in an emailed press release by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance moments after a judge in Washington sentenced Manafort for a completely separate series of crimes.
Now Manafort, who turns 70 next month, looks set to spend a big chunk of his retirement in prison — unless President Trump pardons him.
Judge Amy Berman Jackson ruled that Mueller’s team “established by the preponderance of evidence” that Manafort “intentionally made false statements” on multiple subjects.
Tuesday's document dump “does not contain all of the evidence compiled by the FBI on these issues.”
The report might be covered by the same shield former President Nixon used to block the release of his damning Oval Office tape recordings.
“We’re prepared to do that whenever, we’re ready.”
“What Manafort did is simply unheard of, because it’s so risky”
“This is a disaster for Manafort.”
Several journalists reported Tuesday that they’d received an email from a woman who claimed she'd been offered money from a Republican operative to invent accusations of sexual misconduct by Mueller.
Also, the jury wants to be out for the weekend by 5 p.m. sharp.
After weeks of Manafort sitting silently at a table in front of the hundred courtroom observers, his raspy baritone filled the courtroom for the first time.
“It’s possible,” Gates said as Manafort’s defense team began cross-examining him Tuesday afternoon.
