Mueller ready to deliver key findings in Trump probe - after midterms

The hearing in federal court in Alexandria was largely procedural, but provided the first glimpse of the former Trump campaign chairman since he began cooperating with prosecutors in special counsel Robert Mueller's office.

The Manafort's counsel asked the court to expedite the investigation and sentencing for the state of health of the former head of headquarters of the trump.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has offered what The Wall Street Journal described on Wednesday as a "forceful defense" of the special counsel's ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 USA election.

A jury convicted Manafort of eight felony counts of filing false tax returns, failing to report foreign bank accounts and bank fraud.

However, U.S. district judge refused to wait on the cooperation of Manafort and Mueller. The judge also dismissed 10 counts on which a jury deadlocked at Manafort's summertime trial.

The 69-year-old former Trump campaign chairman has been in jail since June, when a judge revoked his bail.

The document release comes after The Associated Press requested access to the documents and an attorney acting for the AP and other news outlets got involved.

Prosecutors accused him of hiding from USA tax authorities US$16 million he earned as a political consultant for pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine to fund an opulent lifestyle, and then lying to banks to secure US$20 million in loans after his Ukrainian income dried up and he needed cash.

Russian Federation has denied interfering in the election and Trump denies any collusion, frequently describing the Mueller investigation as a political witch hunt.

Manafort also pleaded guilty to related federal charges in Washington, D.C., in a plea agreement to avoid a trial there and in exchange for cooperating with prosecutors.

In court Friday a judge set a sentencing date of February 8.

Manafort's trial and admissions of guilt focused on his lobbying work for pro-Russian Ukrainians and barely touched his time in the Trump campaign.
