Lawyers for former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort told a federal judge Thursday that their client did not violate her gag order by working on an op-ed because the piece was for a Ukrainian newspaper.

U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson issued an order to show cause earlier this week as to why Manafort had not violated her Nov. 8 order, which barred the parties in the case from “making statements to the media or in public settings” that could affect the fairness of a trial. On Monday, lawyers for Robert Mueller, the special counsel, told Jackson that Manafort violated the order by penning an op-ed with a Russian colleague, and that given the alleged violation, they no longer approved of Manafort’s plea deal.
