Federal judge rules ex-Trump campaign chief breached plea deal

WASHINGTON, Feb 13 - U.S. President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort breached his plea agreement with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office by intentionally lying to prosecutors, a federal judge ruled on Wednesday.
