Law&Crime contacted former federal prosecutors about the news, and like Bharara, they agreed it's a big deal.

An attorney for Craig told CNN that his client "was not required to register under the Foreign Agent Registration Act".

Individuals briefed on the matter told CNN that prosecutors in the USA attorney's office for the Southern District of NY are also looking into taking legal action against Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, a powerful law firm where Craig was a partner while possibly lobbying on behalf of a foreign government.

The White House downplayed news about the cooperation.

Manafort on Friday pled guilty to two federal charges in a deal that includes cooperation with special counsel Robert Muelle's investigation. According to CNN, any action against Greg's law firm would be extraordinary, given Mr. Craig and his law firm's reputation as one of the most prestigious law firms in the United States. Manafort's intel is not publicly known.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY is also considering action against law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, where Craig was a partner during the period under examination, CNN reported.

The indicted former campaign chairman, according to reporting from CBS News in late October of 2016, was the person who moved the ex-Indiana governor into the role of Donald Trump's running mate.

According to Bloomberg, Manafort used one of his offshore accounts to funnel $4 million to Craig's law firm.
