Judge Tosses Out Manafort Plea Deal

Business Insider reports that a federal judge ruled Paul Manafort violated his plea deal with the special counsel Robert Mueller.

The judge found Manafort made knowingly false statements to prosecutors in three out of five instances outlined by Mueller's office.

She also determined that Mueller's office's accusation that Manafort breached his plea agreement was made in good faith.

In light of that, the judge nullified Manafort's plea deal with Mueller.
