    President Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has copped a plea deal with federal prosecutors, nixing his trial later this month, according to a report Friday.

    It’s unclear whether Manafort will cooperate with Special Counsel Robert Mueller in his ongoing probe into Russian meddling under terms of the plea agreement, Fox News reported.

    The once-powerful Republican operative was found guilty last month of tax and bank fraud charges that could land him in prison for up to 80 years.

    He faced a second trial in Washington, DC, on seven more counts related to lobbying work he did for Ukraine and witness tampering.

    The plea deal is expected to be announced Friday morning, when Manafort is due in court.

    His DC trial was set to begin Sept. 24.

    Plea deal calls for successful cooperation with prosecutors.

    and

    Manafort's plea can be used against him in any future trial.

    and

    Manafort is forfeiting $46 million. So the cost of the Special Council is a bit of a moot point now.

    Win, Win, Win.

    So much winning.

    It’s an embarrassment of winning. Charlie Sheen is jealous.

    Rudy just issued a statement that Manafort pleading guilty proves that Trump is innocent.


    I'm starting to think Rudy and @MARIS61 are the same person.

    Manafort pleads guilty to everything he was charged with.

    He's now working voluntarily with Mueller.

    Trump, do you feel your butt puckering up?

    ...when Sean Spicer had the job, whenever a reporter would ask him a question I kept waiting for his head to spontaneously explode.
