Special counsel Robert Mueller’s office on Monday accused Paul Manafort, the former campaign chairman for Donald Trump, of tampering with witnesses ahead of his upcoming trial on charges involving illegal lobbying work.

In an 18-page motion filed in the U.S. District Court in Washington, Mueller’s prosecutors called for an immediate hearing to determine whether Manafort and another, unidentified person repeatedly contacted two other unnamed people by phone and encrypted text messages “in an effort to secure materially false testimony” concerning the activities at the center of February’s superseding indictment.

Here’s some more detail courtesy of Reuters:

FBI Special Agent Brock Domin, in a declaration filed with Mueller’s motion, said Manafort had attempted to call, text and send encrypted messages in February to two people from “The Hapsburg Group,” a firm he worked with to promote the interests of Ukraine.

The FBI has documents and statements from the two people, as well as telephone records and documents recovered through a search of Manafort’s iCloud account showing that Trump’s former campaign manager attempted communication while he was out on bail, according to Domin.

The communications were “in an effort to influence their testimony and to otherwise conceal evidence,” Domin wrote. “The investigation into this matter is ongoing.”

Mueller urged Judge Amy Berman Jackson to “promptly” schedule a hearing on the whether to change Manafort’s conditions of release, which could result in Manafort going to jail.

Just for the record, this is NOT how innocent people behave. 

Manafort, just like his former boss, is clearly in a blind panic and is desperately attempting to get people to lie for him.

    “new documents show, payments from the campaign to Kozlowski have doubled since the previous filings. Excluding reimbursements, the campaign has paid Kozlowski nearly $54,000 since October.

    Stein has recently had issues with filing requested documents. In April, she announced that she wouldn’t be fully complying with the Senate intelligence committee’s document request pertaining to ongoing questions about Russian interference in the 2016 campaign. Stein incorrectly claimed that the request for communications between her campaign and Russian nationals would force her to turn over documents pertaining to anyone with Russian heritage.”
