Washington — President Donald Trump's former campaign chairperson, Paul Manafort, has registered with the Justice Department as a foreign agent for political consulting work he did for a Ukrainian political party, acknowledging he coached party members on how to interact with US government officials.

Manafort says in the filing posted online by The Washington Post that his firm received more than $17m from the Party of Regions, the former pro-Russian ruling party in Ukraine, for consulting work from 2012 through 2014.
