Manafort reaches a plea agreement

Apparently the big Manafort news this evening is that he’s either reached a plea agreement or he’s very close to reaching it with Hurricane Mueller.

CNN has the big news:



CNN says nothing is really known at this point about the actual plea agreement and whether or not he’s cooperating with Mueller.

But it sounds like from their reporting that whatever is in this plea agreement would save him from going through the costs of a 2nd trial and avoid a possible retrial of the charges the jury hung on.
