President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, has agreed to a plea deal in an ongoing investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller regarding Russian interference in the United State’s 2016 presidential election.
On Friday, September 14, Manafort pleaded guilty to two charges of conspiracy and “will work with Mueller’s team in part by participating in interviews, turning over documents, and testifying in other proceedings,” according to Vox.
As part of the plea deal, a total of five properties belonging to Manafort has been seized by the government, including his Bridgehampton estate at 174 Jobs Lane. Last year, Manafort got a subpoena for the mortgage he took out on the East End property shortly after leaving the Trump campaign. The mortgage was taken out through Summerbreeze, LLC—a limited liability company that the former campaign manager created.
Manafort also agreed to surrender four New York City properties, including a brownstone at 377 Union Street in Carroll Gardens, a condo at 29 Howard Street in Soho, an apartment at 123 Baxter Street in Chinatown, and a condo at Trump Tower, according to Curbed NY.
He will be able to keep his $1.25 million Florida home in Palm Beach Gardens, according to Bloomberg.
