1/Yes, Manafort may have lied to Mueller because he wanted a pardon from Trump. But let me amplify what I told @amjoyshow about why he may have been scared of the Russian Mafia.
2/Manafort's story in some ways resembles that of Eduard Nektalov who I write about in #HouseofTrump. Manafort had a place in Trump Tower, and Nektalov lived in Trump World Tower. Nektalov was being investigated by the Treasury Dept for money-laundering...
3/Manafort was also involved in money-laundering and, among other vehicles, used a company called Lucicle that was in the name of an associate of Russian crime boss Semion Mogilevich
4/But in May 2004, word got around that Nektalov was cooperating with the feds(just as Manafort seemed to be cooperating w Mueller), and look what happened...
5/ Manafort must have known about this. Yes, he wants a pardon from Trump, but he also knows there are worse fates than spending the rest of your life in prison.
