Ex-Trump campaign chairman Manafort lied to FBI - special counsel

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Donald Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort lied to the FBI and special counsel investigators after pleading guilty to federal charges, breaching his plea agreement, according to a court filing on Monday.

Manafort said in the same filing he disagreed with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's claim that he lied to investigators. Both the special counsel and Manafort's attorneys agreed there was no reason to delay sentencing and asked the court to set a date for sentencing.
