A report from ABC News indicated that Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign manager, agreed to a plea deal with special counsel Robert Mueller over charges in his second trial. One of the prosecutors, Andrew Weissman, confirmed in court that Manafort was cooperating with the government's investigation.

Manafort's lawyers have been in talks with Mueller's team about a plea deal for at least the last few weeks.

Manafort made a similar unsuccessful request in his bank fraud and tax evasion trial in northern Virginia.

Just as the news of the tentative deal was breaking, a previously scheduled pretrial hearing in the D.C. case was pushed back from 9:30 a.m. ET to 11 a.m. ET.

A spokesperson for Manafort and a representative for the special counsel's office both declined to comment.

According to ABC News, prosecutors will announce a deal between the parties in court on Friday. What we still don't know: whether Manafort will cooperate with the special counsel. The conference will begin at 11:30, pushing it back two hours.Jury selection in the Manafort case was set to start next week, with a trial beginning on September 24. The jury could not reach a verdict on 10 other counts.

"With eight convictions already in place, and more possible convictions awaiting him, it seems that he has been bloodied up enough to see the light", Dressler said.

Paul Manafort worked for five months on Trump's 2016 campaign, including three as chairman. Trump has denied colluding with the Russians.

"I don't think he has any information that would hurt the president", Giuliani told Reuters.

Indications have mounted throughout this week that a plea deal was in the works. "Such respect for a courageous man!", Trump wrote on Twitter on August 22. His former business partner, Richard Gates, has pleaded guilty and cooperated in Mueller's probe, testifying against him in the first trial.

The longtime political strategist is scheduled to stand trial in Washington on charges of conspiracy to commit money laundering, acting as an unregistered agent of a foreign principal, making false statements and obstruction of justice.

Mueller is investigating Russia's role in the 2016 U.S. election and whether Trump's campaign colluded with Moscow to help him win.

Prosecutors have said Manafort and Kilimnik conspired to tamper with witnesses, which prompted US District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson to revoke his bail and order him jailed pending trial.
