Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort has been found guilty on eight charges in his financial fraud trial arising from a federal investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 US election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

The US President turned to Twitter on Wednesday to defend his former presidential campaign member Paul Manafort, saying that a large number of counts couldn't even be decided in his case.

Paul Manafort was found guilty of tax fraud, bank fraud and failing to disclose foreign bank accounts.

The US president has also accused his ex-attorney Michael Cohen of making up stories to get a "deal," after the latter’s plea deal in a campaign finance case.

Cohen earlier pleaded guilty to five counts of tax evasion, one count of making a false statement to a bank and two campaign finance violations.

Sentencing is set for December 12 and Cohen could face a prison term of between 46 and 63 months.
