The Wall Street Journal: Paul Manafort reaches deal to plead guilty

Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort reached a deal to plead guilty to two criminal charges Friday.

Paul Manafort reached a deal to plead guilty to two criminal charges Friday, according to court documents, a move that heads off a second criminal trial for the former Trump campaign chairman.

Manafort, who becomes the fifth associate of President Trump to plead guilty in connection with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, was convicted last month by a federal jury in Virginia of not reporting to tax authorities more than $16 million he earned for political consulting work in Ukraine in the early 2010s.

Manafort already faces about eight to 10 years in prison, and the second trial, in Washington, D.C., was set to cover additional charges related to that Ukraine work.
