    Manfort's SIL Cuts Plea Deal

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - The former son-in-law of Paul Manafort, the one-time chairman of President Donald Trumpís campaign, has cut a plea deal with the Justice Department that requires him to cooperate with other criminal probes, two people with knowledge of the matter said

    The guilty plea agreement, which is under seal and has not been previously reported, could add to the legal pressure on Manafort, who is facing two indictments brought by Special Counsel Robert Mueller in his probe of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

    Manafort has been indicted in federal courts in Washington and Virginia with charges ranging from tax evasion to bank fraud and has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

    Jeffrey Yohai, a former business partner of Manafort, was divorced from Manafortís daughter last August.

    You have to wonder if Manafort himself is next?

    The walls are closing in.

    From what I've heard, it's not yet a certainty that Mueller is involved with this plea deal. I wouldn't be surprised if he is, but I haven't yet seen or heard hard evidence of that.

    Manafort is the one they want, because he had so much direct contact with people like Don Jr. and Jared -- and Don Sr., for that matter.

    Bingo

    From my link

    Legal experts have said that Mueller wants to keep applying pressure on Manafort to plead guilty and assist prosecutors with their probe. Manafort chaired the Trump campaign for three months before resigning in August 2016.

    He is in a world of hurt right now....facing a possible long prison run.

    Will see what he does and I guess eventually what his son-in-iaw knows.

    Manafort son in law cooperating with Mueller in "criminal probes"

    I heard this guy had issues of his own in CA BUT I know he and daddy in law were also connected. I guess he had shit to trade.

    Incidentally, Manafort 's daughter and this guy divorced--last year.
