Paul Manafort is in talks with Mueller's office about a possible plea deal
The negotiations over a potential plea deal have centered on which charges Manafort might admit and the length of the sentence to be recommended by prosecutors working for Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the person familiar with the matter said. Manafort, 69, already faces as long as 10 years in prison under advisory sentencing guidelines in the Virginia case.

By pleading guilty, Manafort could avoid the risk of a longer prison term if he’s convicted at a second trial, as well as the threat of forfeiting several properties and financial accounts. He could also save the cost of paying lawyers to defend him at trial. Such white-collar criminal cases can cost defendants millions of dollars.

The talks may break down without a deal, but if they succeed, they could prompt Mueller to request a reduced sentence in both the Washington and Virginia cases. It’s not clear whether Manafort might cooperate in Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The judge handling Paul Manafort's DC case has pushed back the next pretrial conference from 9/12 to 9/14. No explanation given, but she did previously give the govt until 9/13 to respond to Manafort's latest submission re: whether an attorney who advised him on FARA can testify.

Kinda sounds like a potential "Manaflip" is underway, don't it? Will we see a deal by Friday the 14th?

Manafort? Dude's looking at the remainder of his life in prison and asset seizure.
