Paul Manafort’s former son-in-law, Jeffrey Yohai, who had been focused on by special counsel Robert Mueller in recent months in connection to failed property deals, has cut a plea deal with the Justice Department which requires him to cooperate with other criminal investigations, two people with knowledge of the matter told Reuters Thursday.

The intrigue: The agreement could increase legal pressure on Manafort who is facing his own set of charges by Mueller.
