White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders quickly responded to former Trump campaign head Paul Manafort’s plea deal with special counsel Robert Mueller, saying it was “unrelated” to President Trump’s 2016 campaign.
“This had absolutely nothing to do with the president or his victorious 2016 presidential campaign,” Huckabee Sanders said in a statement Friday, first reported by ABC News. “It is totally unrelated.”
Manafort pleaded guilty to two charges from Mueller on Friday, and agreed to work with the special counsel as part of the plea deal. It’s unclear what Manafort’s cooperation with Mueller entails.
Manafort on Friday pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy against the United States and one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice by witness tampering.
