Special Counsel Robert Mueller is due to file two important documents on Friday: a sentencing memo for President Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohen and a report explaining the alleged "crimes and lies" of Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort. Last week, Mueller's office accused Manafort of breaching a plea agreement made in September by lying repeatedly to the special counsel and FBI agents. Cohen made two separate plea agreements: one with federal prosecutors in New York, the other with Mueller's team. He pleaded guilty in August to campaign finance violations, and last week, pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about the scrapped Trump Tower Moscow project. The Cohen memo is expected to explain how he cooperated with the special counsel's office.
