Former independent counsel Ken Starr, who led federal investigations of President Clinton, said special counsel Robert Mueller's striking a deal to win the cooperation of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort is a "very significant breakthrough" and "really good for the country". Starr on Sunday urged the president not to pardon Manafort, saying such a move would be "unwise", and compared Trump's criticisms of the special counsel to the treatment he received from President Bill Clinton's administration during the Whitewater investigation.
He was also a close business associate of a man who US intelligence believes has ties to Russian intelligence.
"I would say there is no prosecutor alive who's more rigorous than Bob", Eisen said of former FBI Director Mueller.
Dershowitz pushed back against Rudy Giuliani's assertion that Manafort's cooperation had nothing to do with Trump.
It will also allow Manafort to serve time from his separate federal cases in Virginia and Washington concurrently, a source told Politico.
It's not clear what is left for that "good life", but presumably the family wasn't stripped of all earthly goods. And when he worked on the campaign, emails show Mr Manafort discussed providing private briefings for a Russian businessman close to Vladimir Putin. Giuliani said he spoke to Trump on Friday about Manafort's plea.

He also expressed very little confidence that Mueller would find any evidence of collusion. "And there's nothing in what he pleaded about collusion".
Later Sunday, Starr told CNN "State of the Union" host Jake Tapper that pardoning Manafort would be "unwise" and "imprudent". His Brooklyn brownstone will be gone, too, and his condo in Trump Tower in Manhattan. Barring a presidential pardon, the 69-year-old was facing a maximum of 80 years in prison. A jury there found him guilty of filing false tax returns, failing to report foreign bank accounts and bank fraud.
