Paul Manafort 'may have lied' to Mueller prosecutors after agreeing to co-operate says federal judge
[link to www.dailymail.co.uk (secure)]

A federal judge said Friday she will hold a hearing behind closed doors to determine whether former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort intentionally lied to investigators, including about sharing polling data with a business associate the U.S. says has ties to Russian intelligence.

Attorneys with special counsel Robert Mueller's office say Manafort breached his plea deal by repeatedly making false statements after he began cooperating with them in September.

Manafort's lawyers say he simply had an inconsistent recollection of facts and events from several years ago, and that he suffers from depression and anxiety and had little time to prepare for questioning on the days he met with investigators.

The allegations threaten his chances of getting leniency at sentencing.

Attorneys with the special counsel told Judge Amy Berman Jackson the deal was no longer a factor, but they hadn't decided how to adjust their sentencing request.

Manafort's attorneys conceded the special counsel had the authority under the terms of the deal to revoke it if they determined that Manafort was lying and did so in good faith.
