Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort will plead guilty in federal court Friday as part of a plea agreement with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Fox News has learned.
The details of the plea agreement, and whether Manafort would cooperate with prosecutors, were not immediately known. A court hearing is set for Friday morning.
Manafort, in a trial set to begin Sept. 24 , is facing seven counts of foreign lobbying violations and witness tampering in federal court in Washington.
In August, in a separate trial in Virginia, a federal jury found Manafort guilty on eight counts of federal tax and banking crimes.
