Paul Manafort's attorneys say he didn't lie to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigators — he was just inconsistent.
In a new redacted court filing, his attorneys argue the evidence meant to prove Manafort intentionally lied is lacking context. They say that, when looked at in context, the evidence "merely demonstrates a lack of consistency in Mr. Manafort’s recollection of certain facts and events."
A hearing on Manafort's alleged lying is set for Friday morning. Right now, his sentencing in this case is scheduled for March 5.
