US President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that he has not discussed a possible pardon for his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, but added that he could still consider such a move.

“It was never discussed, but I wouldn’t take it off the table. Why would I take it off the table?” Trump said in an interview with the New York Post.

However, Mueller’s office filed a court document on Monday, saying Manafort breached the plea agreement by lying to both his office and the FBI on a “variety of subject matters,” and called for sentencing to take place as soon as possible.
