This story appears to have just broken on Twitter before it is even an article:

I will update if and when article appears! This could theoretically send Manafort to prison, which would make things interesting, to say the least.

Big h/t to Glen the Plumber, who also found this tweet:

Update 1: 9:24pm

lynn47 spotted the story on CNN.com:

(CNN)The Special Counsel’s Office has accused Paul Manafort of attempting to shape potential witnesses’ testimony and has asked to send him to jail as he awaits his trial, according to a filing in DC District Court on Monday night.

Manafort is currently out on house arrest and a $10 million unsecured bail, and is awaiting a trial in Virginia scheduled for late July and a trial in DC scheduled to begin in September. He has pleaded not guilty to charges related to his failure to disclose his lobbying work for a foreign government.
Tampering with a witness is a crime in itself — and it’s one Manafort has not yet been charged with.


Update 2: 10:09pm

MSNBC Chyron:

Special Counsel: Fmr Trump Campaign chair tried to call, text and send encrypted messages to witnesses.
