Paul Manafort told Sean Hannity that he would never give up information on President Donald Trump or senior White House adviser and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, according to newly unsealed texts between the two men in 2017 and 2018.

A court unsealed more than 50 pages of texts that show Manafort was scared and defiant and did not think special counsel Robert Mueller would cut a cooperation deal with him because Manafort wouldn't give up Trump or his family.

"They would want me to give up DT or family, esp JK. I would never do that," Manafort texted.

Hannity replied, saying, "Understand. There is nothing to give up on DT. What did JK do?"

Manafort wrote: "Nothin, just like i did nothing. They will want me to make up s--- on both."
