Paul Manafort, Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, has agreed to cooperate with Robert Mueller’s inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 election, in a move that could cause legal trouble for the president. The dramatic development in the Trump-Russia saga was announced at a court hearing in Washington DC on Friday morning, where Manafort confessed to two criminal charges as part of a plea deal. “I’m guilty,” he said.

He also agreed to turn over documents and testify in other cases.Full Article: Paul Manafort: Trump's ex-campaign chair agrees to cooperate with Mueller | US news | The Guardian.
