Rep, Adam Schiff (D-CA) said that Trump and his lawyers are terrified that Paul Manafort is cooperating with Robert Mueller.
Paul Manafort hand-picked Mike Pence to be Trump's VP nominee, so Manafort's flip could be very bad news for the vice president.
Prosecutor Andrew Weissman told the Judge in the Mueller probe that President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has agreed to cooperate with the Justice Department.
Is convicted felon Paul Manafort finally ready to give Bob Mueller the evidence he needs to bring down Donald Trump?
According to the Washington Post, Manafort is again having serious discussions with the special counsel’s office about a possible plea deal.
Before talks broke down, Paul Manafort was trying to cut a plea deal with Robert Mueller, in a sign that the rumblings about a pardon coming from the White House weren't good enough for Trump's former campaign chairman.
What’s bad for Donald Trump is bad for the Republican Party, and yesterday was a horrible day for Donald Trump.
Republicans are suffering because they have allowed Trump to do a hostile takeover of their party. And now, like it or not, when people think of the Grand Old Party they think of Trump.
Trump claimed that the Manafort conviction had nothing to do with him while denying the reality that Manafort was in charge of his presidential campaign at a critical point.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, used the Paul Manafort conviction and Michael Cohen guilty plea as proof that the Mueller investigation is not a witch hunt.
Rick Gates on Monday took the stand in the federal fraud case against his former business partner, ex-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, testifying that he committed crimes while working for Manafort.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller just obtained a major court ruling that destroyed any chance Donald Trump ever had of getting his case thrown out.
Many people in Trump’s camp have argued that Mueller doesn’t have the legal authority under the U.S. Constitution to go after the president. That argument has now gone down in flames.
The White House is publicly claiming that Trump isn't paying attention to the Paul Manafort trial, but privately Trump is watching the television coverage and demanding updates from his lawyers.

As NBC’s Pete Williams pointed out the calculus has now changed for Manafort, “Does that change his thinking about his strategy so far which has been to aggressively fight the government’s case. Will this cause him to reconsider and begin to enter into plea negotiations? I can’t answer that question but its to be noted this does change the circumstances now. The charges were filed by Robert Mueller in October. They have been adding to this case bit by bit. The latest charge they added was one of the things that happened in this hearing today was he was arraigned on new charges of witness tampering. That’s what led the judge to revoke his bail saying he agreed when he was let out on bail that he wouldn’t violate any laws. Now he’s charged with violating witness tampering laws even though his lawyer said what he did didn’t amount to the kind of witness tampering that Mueller was talking about. I think that’s the question. Does it change his calculus on how to go forward.”

But if new court filings by the Department of Justice are any indication, Manafort was known by the FBI to be committing crimes before he joined Trump, and even before Trump announced his candidacy for president.
