Paul Manafort to Cooperate With Special Counsel

Prosecutors said on Friday that Paul Manafort, President Trump’s onetime campaign manager, would cooperate with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian electoral interference.

Given Manafort’s close involvement with Russia and the Trump campaign, the news could constitute a major blow to President Trump as he tries to contain the damage from Mueller’s probe. However, Manafort’s web of connections in the murky world of lobbying and foreign influence means that the information prosecutors extract from him may not necessarily involve the president directly.
