In a deal with prosecutors revealed on September 14, Manafort pleaded guilty to two counts in the Washington case and pledged to cooperate in Mueller's probe.

"But at the end of the day, the public will have confidence that the cases we brought were warranted by the evidence and that it was an appropriate use of resources", Rosenstein said.

The 69-year-old former Trump campaign chairman has been in jail since June, when a judge revoked his bail.

Manafort was convicted in federal court in Alexandria on tax- and bank-fraud charges largely unconnected to his work on the Trump campaign. It's not yet known the extent of his contacts with Russians and Ukrainians throughout 2016, though Mueller is believed to have closely examined allegations that Manafort coordinated with the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.

Manafort also stayed in touch through this year with his Russian associate Konstantin Kilimnik, whom prosecutors say has ties to the same Russian military intelligence operation that allegedly hacked the Democrats during the election.
