Preet Bharara: Paul Manafort Will Likely Flip On Trump

Raw Story reports:

Appearing on CNN, former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara claimed that special counsel Robert Mueller hit former Trump campaign chair Paul Manfort with so many charges, that he is likely talking with his lawyers about flipping on President Donald Trump to get a favorable plea deal.

“Investigators will make an approach, say ‘we have good evidence against you,’ and they probably did that with Papadopoulos and he said okay and cooperated. With Paul Manafort, he did not. Sometimes though, after people’s minds get focused because a criminal charge is brought to bear on them, they have to retain counsel, they go to court and they’re confronted with the enormity of what is facing them, meaning the loss of their liberty. They sometimes flip then.”
