Donald Trump’s week is about to get worse, a whole lot worse. From ABC News:

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has tentatively agreed to a plea deal with special counsel Robert Mueller that will head off his upcoming trial, sources familiar with the negotiations tell ABC News.

The deal is expected to be announced in court Friday, but it remains unclear whether Manafort has agreed to cooperate with prosecutors or is simply conceding to a guilty plea, which would allow him to avoid the stress and expense of trial, according to three sources with knowledge of the discussions.

Stay tuned. Paul Manafort wasn’t just a good friend of Donald Trump, he was a longtime resident of Trump Tower and he managed Donald Trump’s campaign, helping him secure the Republican nomination. Way back at the Republican National Convention, Paul Manafort was asked whether Donald Trump had any financial relationships with Russian oligarchs. Let’s revisit his answer.

Let’s see if he the sticks to that story now.

Manafort was so integral that Trump pals Newt Gingrich and Sean Hannity once said this:

Thoughts and prayers, Donald Trump.
