"I don't know of any justification for pardoning an individual who just stands convicted of very serious crimes and who just pled guilty to serious crimes", Starr said.

"Manafort is a key person to help us unwind whether this is the most unlikely string of improbable coincidences or whether this is an active conspiracy", said California Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee.

"They may think they know what Manafort has to say because he was part of that joint defense agreement, but they have to know that he may not have told them the full truth", Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on NBC's "Meet the Press".

"Anyone who gets indicted by Bob Mueller goes down", he said, adding that the "longer you wait to come clean, the worse it's going to get".

Under the terms of the deal, Manafort agreed to tell all he knows to special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential election.

However, if the weather system qualifies for naming under the Met Office's rules, it is then referred to it as " Storm Helene ". Tomorrow morning will be mostly cloudy with outbreaks of rain with freshening southerly winds keeping things cool.

Jury selection is scheduled to begin on Monday in Manafort's second trial in federal court in Washington on charges including conspiring to launder money, conspiring to defraud the United States, failing to register as a foreign agent and witness tampering. In his deal with the special counsel, he agreed to "broad" cooperation and to participate in "interviews, briefings, producing documents, testifying in other matters".

"I'm surprised that we are where we are, that Manafort is cooperating", Schiff said.

Opinion: Paul Manafort plea is new proof that Mueller is Trump's worst nightmare. "I don't think - given the nature of the fight that Manafort put up, the seriousness of the crimes, and the power of the evidence of those crimes, Jon - that this deal would have been offered absent some very powerful evidence".

"And President Trump, if he was going to pardon, he should have pardoned before Manafort agreed to cooperate". The agreement makes Manafort the latest associate of Trump, a president known to place a premium on loyalty among subordinates, to admit guilt and work with investigators in hopes of leniency.

The question remains what information Manafort, 69, is able to provide about the president, as well as whether the Trump election effort co-ordinated with Russian Federation. "We have his notes, he can explain his notes, he can talk about the run-up to the meeting, the afterwards". Scott Dworkin, a Democratic strategist and MSNBC contributor, said he believes that Trump will resign within two weeks now that Manafort has turned. It's unclear how Friday's deal might affect any Manafort pursuit of a pardon. "It will only dig the hole deeper", Eisen said.
