Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman, has agreed with federal prosecutors to plead guilty in special counsel Robert Mueller's probe, court filings Friday show.

A superseding criminal information against Manafort, 69, was filed Friday in the District of Columbia, which alleges a conspiracy against the United States (money laundering, tax fraud, failing to file Foreign Bank Account Reports, violating the Foreign Agents Registration Act, and lying and misrepresenting to the Department of Justice) and a conspiracy to obstruct justice (witness tampering).
