Paul Manafort has failed to accept responsibility for his crimes, Special Counsel Robert Mueller told the Virginia judge who will sentence him in two days.

In their final submission to U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III in Alexandria, prosecutors working for Mueller accused the former chairman of President Donald Trump’s 2016 election campaign of shifting blame to “everyone from the Special Counsel’s Office to his Ukrainian clients.” The filing came in response to Manafort’s bid for leniency.
