Mueller says Manafort tried to tamper with witnesses, hide evidence

President Donald Trump on Sunday lashed out at the Justice Department for not warning him that his former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, was the subject of investigation by "Comey and the boys".

According to documents filed in federal court in D.C., Manafort reached out to the would-be witnesses in February after a superseding indictment was unsealed.

An F.B.I. agent, Brock W. Domin, wrote in court documents that at least one witness reported Mr. Manafort's contact and said that he appeared to be trying to coach their story about Mr. Manafort's lobbying practices. This coterie allegedly was dubbed the "Hapsburg" group by Manafort.

While never naming the people who were allegedly contacted by Manafort, prosecutors say Manafort "repeatedly contacted" two people who worked for him and previously assisted in his lobbying and public relations efforts for Ukrainian politicians. Another message said, "We should talk". Manafort sought to "secure materially false testimony concerning the activities of" an influential group of European leaders, called the Hapsburg group, that Manafort once used to lobby on behalf of Ukraine, the prosecutors say. Manafort has been charged with, among other things, conspiracy against the United States and conspiracy to launder money.
