To the extent this line in NYT’s piece is based on the filing, it’s not quite right. Manafort’s team only wrote that Manafort personally “believes he has provided truthful info,” which is different from being truthful in toto or the lawyers believing it.…
As to the larger story of Downing briefing Trump’s lawyers, remember that someone specifically negotiated to remove this provision of Gates’s plea agreement from Manafort’s—a difference pointed out in my old dumb spreadsheet comparing the plea agreements.…
This is what Manafort’s cooperation provision looks like. You can see the gag agreement, which is highlighted above in Rick Gates’ agreement, doesn’t appear here.
I should add that I asked the SCO about this specific change back in mid-September
