“Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III is considering re-trying President Donald J. Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort on 10 charges that resulted in a hung jury in a trial in August,” according to a Washington Examiner report.

Federal prosecutors – at the behest of Mueller – are also considering levying additional charges against Manafort for an alleged breach of his plea deal with the Special Counsel.

“Mueller’s team on Friday did not reveal the details of what exactly Manafort did to breach the plea agreement, but they will in a court filing Dec. 7,” the report said. “Lawyers for Manafort — who did not appear in federal court Friday morning — will then have until Dec. 12 to respond to the details of the alleged plea agreement breach.”

This is the next chapter in the story of a Special Counsel who has targeted Trump associates and allies, not for alleged Russian “collusion,” the pretext for the whole investigations, but seemingly as a political stunt to send a message to the President.

“Just before a second Manafort trial in federal court in Washington, D.C., was set to begin in September, Manafort accepted a plea agreement with federal prosecutors and pleaded guilty to two federal crimes,” the report said. “As part of the deal, Manafort agreed to ‘fully, truthfully, completely, and forthrightly’ answer questions of interest to the special counsel.”

Mueller has now accused Manafort of lying to him on several occasions, though he did not specify exactly how.
