Fedral Judge Rules Manafort Deliberately Lied

A federal judge has ruled Paul Manafort deliberately lied to special counsel Robert Mueller’s team.

This means a plea deal for president trump’s former campaign chairman would be voided.

In her ruling, Judge Amy Berman Jackson said “Manafort intentionally made multiple false statements to the FBI, the office of the special counsel and the grand jury concerning matters that were material to the investigation.”

Manafort denies intentionally lying.

He is due back in court March 13 to be sentenced on the two counts he pleaded guilty to.
