WHAT WE’RE WATCHING
SUITED UP - Paul Manafort is due in court today to address charges that he lied to special counsel Robert Mueller, despite a plea agreement. U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson ordered the former Trump campaign chairman to appear in person, despite his request to remain in his Virginia jail cell. However, the judge is permitting Manafort to appear in a suit instead of prison garb. [Insert $15K ostrich-jacket snark here.] Mueller’s office asserts, among other things, that Manafort lied about his contact with Konstantin Kilimnik, an associate believed to have ties to Russian intelligence, and his contact with the Trump administration.
