Manafort Denies Breaching Plea Agreement in Court Filing
Updated on

President Donald Trump said Robert Mueller is behaving “viciously,” a day after the special counsel accused Trump’s former campaign chairman of lying in breach of an agreement to cooperate with authorities.

In one of his most sustained and rambling attacks yet, Trump said on Twitter Tuesday that Mueller is “ruining lives” as punishment against witnesses who he said refuse to lie. The president’s attack on the investigation comes after Mueller said in court filings Monday that a cooperation pact with Trump’s one-time campaign chief Paul Manafort was void because Manafort lied to federal investigators and prosecutors.
