Court Date Set for Manafort            12/11 06:22

   WASHINGTON (AP) -- A judge has set a court date for this week for former 
Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort after prosecutors with the special 
counsel's office detailed lies they say he told them.

   The scheduling conference will take place Tuesday afternoon before U.S. 
District Judge Amy Berman Jackson. It had earlier been set for Wednesday 
morning. Manafort is not expected to attend.

   In a court filing Friday night, special counsel Robert Mueller said Manafort 
had lied about contacts with Trump administration officials and with an 
associate who U.S. authorities say has ties to Russian intelligence.

   Manafort's attorneys have denied that he made false statements.

   Manafort pleaded guilty to conspiracy in September and agreed to cooperate 
with Mueller's investigation. But prosecutors say his deception has torpedoed 
that plea deal.
