BREAKING: Paul Manafort to Plead Guilty in Mueller Probe

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort will plead guilty in federal court Friday as part of a plea agreement with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, NBC news reports. The details of the plea agreement, and whether Manafort would cooperate with prosecutors, were not immediately known. A court hearing is set for Friday morning at 11 a.m.

Manafort is facing seven counts of foreign lobbying violations and witness tampering in federal court in Washington. In August, in a separate trial in Virginia, a federal jury found Manafort guilty on eight counts of federal tax and banking crimes.
