– The Washington Times – Saturday, February 23, 2019
A critical document that could spell out Paul Manafort’s cooperation with special counsel Robert Mueller was not publicly filed before its midnight Friday deadline.

The document, a sentencing memorandum, was expected to be filed in a Washington, D.C. federal court. Since the deadline passed without a public copy available, it is not clear when anyone will see it.

Prosecutors could have sent the eagerly-awaited document under seal to Judge Amy Berman Jackson, but that is not clear if that is what happened.

The memo is also expected to recommend a potential sentence for Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign manager. Mr. Manafort pleaded guilty last year to two counts of conspiracy against the United States.

Mueller’s team had already recommended up to 25 years in prison and a fine in the tens of millions for bank and tax fraud in a separate, but related case in Alexandria, Virginia.
