Earlier this week, a federal judge in the US ruled that the president of Donald Trumps previous kampanjchef Manafort intentionally lied when he was interviewed in the framework of mueller's so-called Rysslandsutredning. Thus broke Manafort against the settlement from september, when he pleaded guilty but would receive a lighter sentence in exchange for cooperation with Mueller.
the Ruling means that Mueller no longer need to comply with the settlement.
the 69-year-old Paul Manafort is one of seven former kampanjarbetare of the president of the Trump prosecuted within the framework of the Muellerutredningen.
Manafort was found in August last year, guilty of multiple bank fraud and tax evasion.
the Verdict expected to be announced on march 13.
