Mueller revealed the names of the 2 witnesses Paul Manafort allegedly tried to tamper with

  • The special counsel Robert Mueller may have inadvertently revealed the names of two potential witnesses that Paul Manafort, the former chairman of President Donald Trump’s campaign, allegedly tried to tamper with in the Russia investigation.
  • The witnesses are former journalists Alan Friedman and Eckart Sager, both of whom were involved in a lobbying group’s efforts to bolster former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych’s reputation in the US in 2013.
  • Shortly after Mueller’s office filed documents in court revealing Friedman’s and Sager’s names, prosecutors refiled the documents with redactions.
