Manafort update:

Judge ruling that Special Counsel established by a preponderance of the evidence that Manafort lied to the FBI, Special Counsel, and grand jury

Judge also found the Special Counsel failed to show lies in other aspects of his cooperation.
Special Counsel failed to show by a preponderance of the evidence (easy standard; more likely than not) that Manafort lied about Kilimnik's role in the obstruction of justice conspiracy.

Here are the Special Counsel's allegations about that "lie":
Special Counsel also failed to show it was more likely than not that Manafort lied about "his contacts with the [Trump] administration."
