Jeffrey Yohai, the former son-in-law of Paul Manafort, the one-time chairman of President Donald Trump’s campaign, has cut a plea deal with the Justice Department that requires him to cooperate with other criminal probes. The former son-in-law is a former business partner of Manafort. The case against Yohai involves real estate and bank dealings in California and New York and the plea included pleading guilty to misusing construction loan funds and to a count related to a bank account overdraft. Yohai was privy to many of Manafort’s financial dealings and together, they cooperated in getting loans for property deals in New York. Yohai was interviewed last June when Mueller’s team asked about Manafort’s relationship with Trump, his ties to Russian oligarchs, and his borrowing of tens of millions of dollars against properties in New York.
