Judge Rules Mueller Must Reveal Identities of Alleged 'Foreign Agents' Who Worked with Manafort

A judge ruled has that special counsel Robert Mueller’s office will have to reveal the identities of alleged foreign agents who worked with former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

In a ruling issued Tuesday morning, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson said that Mueller’s team must deliver the names of any individuals whom Manafort “caused and aided and abetted” to illegally act as foreign agents without properly registering.

Mueller’s team has until Friday to deliver the names to Manafort’s defense team. In earlier indictments, Mueller alleged that the Manafort-aided “foreign agents” included some “former senior politicians.”
