18 u.s.c. § 371

Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort pled guilty on counts of conspiracy against the United States for failing to register his work on behalf of a foreign agent and obstruction of justice insofar as he tried to convince potential witnesses to not take part in ongoing investigations into wrongdoing and agrees to participate in the probe of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Manafort entered his disposition ahead of a second trial that was scheduled for Monday and curries leniency for his decision and willingness to accept responsibility for what he’s enabled in exchange for full, truthful, complete and forthright cooperation though his sentence may mean ten years in prison. Pretending to be pre-occupied with other matters, Trump has so far been silent on the developments.
