Contrary to early reporting on the plea deal former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort struck with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, there is nothing in the agreement that suggests a special "carve out" regarding Manafort's cooperation with regard to the Trump campaign,

The Washington Post's senior political writer, Aaron Blake tweeted the agreement, showing that Manafort's plea deal is nearly identical to the plea agreement of his former business partner, Rick Gates.

Manafort also signed away all rights under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)
