WASHINGTON—A federal judge ruled Wednesday that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort intentionally lied to investigators involved in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Manafort misled investigators on at least three matters in violation of a plea deal he made with Mueller’s team, according to U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s ruling. In particular, Manafort lied about his communications with another unspecified Department of Justice investigation.
