Manafort Kept Up His Sketchy Behavior While Already In Deep Legal Trouble

A court document filed by special counsel Robert Mueller this week reveals new examples of how Paul Manafort allegedly engaged in brazenly shady behaviors well after he was already in deep legal trouble. The heavily redacted filing was made in the dispute over whether Manafort violated his plea deal with Mueller by lying to investigators — perhaps the most brazen, and likely illegal, misconduct of all. But in addition to that, it appears that as late as March 2018, after Manafort was indicted...
