Prosecutors Say Manafort Financial Reports Vary

In a court filing Tuesday, federal prosecutors said the precise value of Paul Manafort's assets is hard to quantify.

WASHINGTON (AP) — In a court filing Tuesday, federal prosecutors said the precise value of Paul Manafort's assets is hard to quantify.

The filing from the office of special counsel Robert Mueller came one day after Manafort appeared in court on charges including money laundering and other financial crimes.

It says in November 2016 and January 2017, he noted assets to be worth approximately $25 million, but he has provided significantly higher amounts at other times.

The prosecutors said Manafort's business associate, Rick Gates, who was also charged Monday, has also stated conflicting amounts.

They said sentencing guideline ranges correspond to a possible punishment of 121 to 151 months of imprisonment for Gates, and 151 to 188 months for Manafort.

Both pleaded not guilty.
