Mueller files redacted Paul Manafort sentencing memo

Source: CBS News

Special counsel Robert Mueller has filed a redacted memo on sentencing recommendations for former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

Friday had been the deadline for the filing, although that process appears to have been slowed by the redaction process. The sentencing memo comes as the 69-year-old Manafort, who led Donald Trump's 2016 campaign for several months, is already facing the possibility of spending the rest of his life in prison in a separate case.

Inside the Mueller team’s decision to dispute BuzzFeed’s explosive story on Trump and Cohen

By Matt Zapotosky and
Devlin Barrett
January 19 at 7:25 PM

When a BuzzFeed reporter first sought comment on the news outlet’s explosive report that President Trump had directed his lawyer to lie to Congress, the spokesman for special counsel Robert S. Mueller III treated the request as he would almost any other story.

The reporter informed Mueller’s spokesman, Peter Carr, that he and a colleague had “a story coming stating that Michael Cohen was directed by President Trump himself to lie to Congress about his negotiations related to the Trump Moscow project,” according to copies of their emails provided by a BuzzFeed spokesman. Importantly, the reporter made no reference to the special counsel’s office specifically or evidence that Mueller’s investigators had uncovered.

“We’ll decline to comment,” Carr responded, a familiar refrain for those in the media who cover Mueller’s work.

The innocuous exchange belied the chaos it would produce. When BuzzFeed published the story hours later, it far exceeded Carr’s initial impression, people familiar with the matter said, in that the reporting alleged that Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer and self-described fixer, “told the special counsel that after the election, the president personally instructed him to lie,” and that Mueller’s office learned of the directive “through interviews with multiple witnesses from the Trump Organization and internal company emails, text messages, and a cache of other documents.”

In the view of the special counsel’s office, that was wrong, two people familiar with the matter said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. And with Democrats raising the specter of investigation and impeachment, Mueller’s team started discussing a step they had never before taken: publicly disputing reporting on evidence in their ongoing investigation.

At debate: Public hangings, African despots, pre-existing conditions and ducking the media

Familiar themes repeat at debate: Public hangings, African despots, pre-existing conditions and ducking the media

By Larrison Campbell and Bobby Harrison

On Tuesday night, after just under 10 minutes of questions, U.S.
Senate candidate Mike Espy thanked a crowd of reporters and walked away
from the podium.

The two dozen members of local and national media then waited for
Espy’s opponent in the U.S. Senate race, interim Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith,
who had just debated Espy in a room twenty yards from the podium, to
take questions.

Instead, Mississippi’s other U.S. Senator, Roger Wicker, appeared.
Asked if Sen. Hyde-Smith would be speaking to reporters, Wicker was

“No. I think the debate speaks for itself,” Wicker said.

“I am glad to be here tonight as a spokesman… I think the story
should be about the debate” and not what the candidates said after the
debate, he added.


Would not take reporters' questions as scheduled. Chickened out.
