As with his conviction last month on other charges, Mr. Manafort's Friday guilty plea concerns his business as a political fixer long before he worked for the Trump campaign.
The information says Manafort conspired to act as an unregistered agent for the government of Ukraine and its former pro-Russian president, Victor Yanukovych, generating more than $60 million in income.
After news broke of Manafort's plea Friday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said, "This had absolutely nothing to do with the President or his victorious 2016 Presidential campaign". The discovery of his witness contacts led to a superseding indictment in June and Manafort's jailing ahead of his trial.
As campaign chairman, Manafort personally offered private briefings about the campaign to the Russian industrialist Oleg Deripaska.
The president tweeted "Unlike Michael Cohen, he refused to 'break" - make up stories in order to get a 'deal.
And during his Virginia trial in August, Manafort's lawyers spent considerable time painting Mr Gates as a liar, embezzler, philanderer and turncoat who would say anything to get a lighter prison sentence.
Manafort's deal could also prompt other subjects of Mueller's investigation to cooperate, causing "the proverbial snowball to roll down the hill", Waxman said.
The ex-campaign chair reportedly lied to Trump and said his plane had "mechanical problems" on July 12 so that he would have to say in Indianapolis, where he arranged a breakfast between the candidate and the governor.
In February, a US federal grand jury charged 13 Russian nationals and three Russian companies with plotting to interfere in the 2016 USA presidential election. In this scenario, Manafort, in vowing to cooperate with the prosecution, would be seeking to force Trump's hand on the issue of a pardon.
She has been a constant presence at her husband's court hearings and attended every day of testimony at Manafort's trial last month in Virginia.
The Virginia case was the first brought by Mueller to go to trial, and the guilty finding by the jury - on eight of 18 charges - was a significant victory for Mueller's team. His agreement is sweeping: "any and all matters as to what the Government deems the cooperation relevant".
The charges include conspiracy against the United States and conspiracy to obstruct justice.
In addition to the financial and lobbying charges against Manafort, the special counsel's team has said it's investigating allegations he colluded with Russian Federation while working for Trump.
Manafort's second trial would have been related to Ukrainian political consulting work, including failing to register as a foreign agent. Mueller has collected folders upon folders of information since he began his investigation and spoken with dozens of witnesses.
Mr Trump went so far as to suggest in a television interview that plea deals with prosecutors "should nearly be illegal". But those were only some of the charges against him.
The forfeitures are part of an agreement to plea guilty to one count of conspiracy against the United States and one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice by witness tampering.
Moscow rejects the conclusions of USA intelligence agencies that it interfered in the American democratic process and Trump denies campaign collusion.
In the heartfelt note Scott told his brother that "he has nothing to worry about and everyone has seen the real him". The former Cheers star said: "I never foresaw myself sleeping with 13 other people, like Caligula or something".
Two-thirds of North Carolina's farm income comes from poultry and livestock, including hogs and dairy cattle, according to Wooten. But the firm warns that Tropical Storm Isaac , which formed in the Atlantic Ocean on Saturday, is right behind Florence.
Mr Manafort would become the most prominent former Trump campaign official to plead guilty in Mueller's investigation. Trump's former fixer and lawyer, Michael Cohen, admitted financial crimes and is helping federal prosecutors in NY .

Trump's visit was criticized by a number of groups in Ireland as including a number of ministers in the government. A White House statement had said the Irish visit would "renew the deep and historic ties between our two nations".
The effects of Hurricane Florence can already be felt along the coast of North Carolina as of 12 p.m. on September 13. Coastal streets were inundated with ocean water, causing damage to dozens of homes and businesses, officials said.
The private meeting held in the tiny state's Apostolic Palace included the three top officials from the body that runs the U.S. In their conclusions, the German researchers said there was evidence that some church files were manipulated or destroyed.
It is more likely that Ireland, Scotland and northern England will see winds of 10 to 20mph, and gusts up to 40mph. Up to 1.7 million people have been ordered to evacuate across South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia.
Authorities pushed back against any suggestion the storm's threat was exaggerated. "You feel like you should have already left". Fortunately for House, he says this storm should not be a devastating event for the beach town in terms of loss of life.
