Mueller Working With NY Attorney General in Manafort Probe

Special counsel Robert Muellerโ€™s team is reportedly working with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to look into former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafortโ€™s finances. According to Politico, the two sides โ€œhave shared evidence and talked frequently in recent weeks about a potential case,โ€ and have allegedly uncovered โ€œevidence on financial crimes, including potential money laundering.โ€ Since President Trump does not have the power to pardon individuals for state-level crimes, working with Schneiderman could prompt Manafort to cooperate as part of the federal investigation.
