Manafort pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy against the United States and one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice by witness tampering on Friday. He agreed to forfeit several properties and bank accounts, including his property at Trump Tower in New York, as part of his deal. 

Manafort's decision to cooperate with Mueller's probe could be significant. He had previously not reached a deal to cooperate, and was found guilty of eight charges in a trial last month, charges stemming from Mueller's investigation.

Trump's first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, and Richard Gates, a former associate of Manafort's who testified against him, are also cooperating with Mueller's probe.
