Ex-Trump aide may have plea deal

Yorkshire Post - - UK & ABROAD -

Trump cam­paign chair­man Paul Manafort may plead guilty to con­spir­acy charges as he faces a sec­ond trial next week.

The spec­u­la­tion fol­lows the fil­ing of charg­ing doc­u­ments that can only be filed with a de­fen­dant’s con­sent, which typ­i­cally sig­nals a deal has been reached. The charges in­clude con­spir­acy against the US and con­spir­acy to ob­struct jus­tice.

It is un­clear whether any agree­ment would re­quire him to co-op­er­ate with the in­ves­ti­ga­tion into Rus­sian col­lu­sion.
