Trump chair in plea deal over crimes

Daily Record - - NEWS -

DON­ALD Trump’s for­mer cam­paign chair­man has agreed to co­op­er­ate with the Rus­sia probe.

Paul Manafort yes­ter­day pled guilty to two fed­eral crimes re­lated to po­lit­i­cal con­sult­ing work in the Ukraine that “dates back many years”, his lawyer Kevin Down­ing said.

Manafort was con­victed last month of eight fi­nan­cial crimes in a sep­a­rate trial and faces seven to 10 years in prison in that case.
