WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort is not seeking a hearing on whether he violated his plea deal, though he continues to insist that he did not break the terms of the agreement, his lawyers said in a court filing on Tuesday.

"Despite Mr Manafort's position that he has not made intentional misstatements, he is not requesting a hearing on the breach issue," the document stated.

Manafort reached the plea agreement with Mueller in September after a jury found him guilty of eight charges of tax evasion and bank fraud by a jury in the US state of Virginia in August.

However, Mueller's filing said Manafort  "breached his plea agreement in numerous ways by lying to the FBI" about numerous things, including his interactions with Russian associate Konstantin Kilimnik. The document also stated that the former associate of then-presidential candidate Trump provided wrong information about a wire-transfer to a firm that was working for him, information relevant to another Justice Department investigation.
