Paul Manafort Blames His Lies To Robert Mueller On “Gout” And Poor Health

“The conditions of [his] confinement have taken a toll on his physical and mental health," say Paul Manafort's lawyers.

Responding to claims that Paul Manafort intentionally gave false information to the Mueller investigation, Manafort’s lawyers repudiated through a statement that misstatements may have been the result of his health, according to a Twitter thread by Kenneth Vogel.

In the statement, the lawyers claimed that Manafort cooperated in providing the government with access to his devices and emails and cited his “substantial and meaningful performance.”

“It is important to note that the conditions of Mr. Manafort’s confinement have taken a toll on his physical and mental health.”

Other conditions mentioned in the document used to explain his misstatements included gout, depression, anxiety, and little contact with his family.
