Robert Mueller to Submit Sentencing Guidelines for Manafort, Cohen

HeadlineDec 07, 2018
H7 mueller

Today is expected to be a big day in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe as he faces two deadlines. Mueller is expected to file paperwork detailing how Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort violated his plea agreement after he pleaded guilty to several federal charges and agreed to cooperate with investigators. In addition, Mueller is expected to submit a sentencing memo for former Trump attorney Michael Cohen. Last week Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about Trump’s efforts to build a skyscraper in Moscow while running for president. In August, Cohen pleaded guilty to eight criminal charges, including tax evasion, bank fraud and campaign finance violations. Meanwhile, former FBI Director James Comey is expected to testify today behind closed doors before the House Judiciary Committee.
