Can you redact that suit jacket though

Manafort was among the first Americans charged in Mueller's investigation and has been among the central characters in the case, having led the campaign during the Republican convention and as, U.S intelligence officials say, Russian Federation was working to sway the election in Trump's favor.

The information is in a redacted court filing, unsealed on Tuesday, from Manafort's lawyers.

As part of a document meant to defend Manafort against accusations that he lied to federal prosecutors after signing onto a cooperation agreement with special counsel Robert Mueller, his defense counsel failed to adequately redact sections of their filing.

Kilimnik, who worked closely with Manafort, is believed to have close ties to Russian intelligence.

It also says that Manafort met with Kilimnik in Madrid and that they discussed a peace deal for Ukraine.

Manafort's lawyers said their client had no reason to misrepresent the truth in his 12 interviews with investigators late previous year.

In their response on Tuesday, Manafort's attorneys inadvertently revealed that the special counsel alleges Manafort "lied about sharing polling data with Mr. Kilimnik related to the 2016 presidential campaign".

The defence team says Mr Mueller's team has indicated it will not pursue additional charges against Manafort. His attorneys added that "it is not surprising at all that Mr. Manafort was unable to recall specific details prior to having his recollection refreshed".

The documents also reveal that prosecutors accused Manafort of lying about his contact with administration officials after Mr Trump took office.

Emails previously reported by news outlets show that in July 2016, Manafort told Mr Kilimnik he was willing to provide "private briefings" about the Trump campaign to Oleg Deripaska, a Russian billionaire with ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Manafort had told investigators he had no direct or indirect contact with White House officials since Trump's inauguration, but Manafort had been in touch with officials as recently as the spring, according to the filing.

While some of the redacted information was not a big deal, there was one section of the failed redaction that appears to shed light on Mueller's understanding of Manafort's roll in the 2016 presidential election.

His lawyers reminded the court that Manafort had been co-operative and had no motive to lie, having voluntarily offered his electronic devices and communications to the government.

Prosecutors had accused Manafort of telling "multiple discernible lies" over the course of 12 interviews with investigators and two grand jury appearances since his guilty plea in September in Washington to conspiring to defraud the United States and conspiring to obstruct justice through his undisclosed lobbying for a pro-Russian politician in Ukraine.

Jackson has scheduled Manafort's sentencing for March 5, but the judge said she first wanted to determine whether he did breach the plea agreement.
