The reporter added: "It's one issue that his lawyer Kevin Downing had raised saying he hoped the judge would sentence Manafort as soon as possible..."

U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis on Friday sought to tie up the remaining loose-ends in Paul Manafort's case in Virginia, in a hearing where Manafort showed up in a wheelchair, with his right foot appearing to be in some sort of white sock or wrapping. Over the course of the probe, which began previous year, Mueller and his team have looked for evidence of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, as well as possible collusion or obstruction of justice on Trump's part. He said the issues had to do with the terms of his confinement needed to guarantee his safety. Downing didn't specify why Manafort was in a wheelchair.

Prosecutors say Manafort falsified the documents, leaving off millions in income. Cooperation with the ongoing investigation may mean a lesser sentence for Manafort depending on whether the government believes he "provided substantial assistance in investigating or prosecuting another person". "I will dismiss the deadlocked counts without prejudice", he said.

A federal jury convicted Manafort earlier this year on eight counts of tax and bank fraud.

US President Donald Trump has vowed "severe punishment" if proof of Saudi involvement in Khashoggi's disappearance is found. Trump visited the kingdom on his first overseas trip as president and has touted USA arms sales to Saudi Arabia.

In exchange, Manafort will cooperate fully with Mueller's probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Prosecutors accused him of hiding from USA tax authorities $16 million United States he earned as a political consultant for pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine to fund an opulent lifestyle, and then lying to banks to secure $20 million in loans after his Ukrainian income dried up and he needed cash. Manafort said he laundered more than $30 million, cheated the USA of $15 million in taxes and failed to tell US authorities about a secret lobbying campaign he undertook on behalf of Ukraine.

Manafort's links to Russian and Ukrainian oligarchs have been a focus of Mueller's prosecutors. Trump's eldest son, Donald Jr., and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, also attended.

Even if those charges were dropped, Manafort may face a sentence of a decade or more in prison. If Mueller is satisfied with Manafort's cooperation, he can recommend leniency to both judges.
