Manafort Pleads Not Guilty In Second Round Of Mueller Charges

  • Paul Manafort is already charged with a slew of federal charges including money laundering in a D.C. court

Paul Manafort, former trump campaign chairman, back in court Thursday pleading not guilty to recently filed tax and bank fraud charges.

Manafort is charged in Washington with making false statements about his foreign lobbying work, which he primarily did for Ukrainian politicians, and engaging in a money laundering conspiracy.

Manafort was leaving a federal court building in Alexandria, Va., when the protestor, holding a sign that read "traitor" on one side and "blood money" on the other, threw the Russian flag.

"You need to go back to the optometrist", the judge replied, and ordered the Virginia trial to begin July 10.

So far, Trump has categorically denied any alleged coordination or collusion between his campaign and the Kremlin to harm his electoral rival, Democrat Hillary Clinton, whom he - to the surprise of virtually everyone - defeated for the presidency last November. It's the second case tied to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation in which Manafort has pleaded not guilty. The charges against Manafort do not relate to the election. They say he used funds from secret offshore accounts to enjoy a life of luxury.

After the hearing, committee members said Lewandowski had refused to answer many of their questions. He was sacked in June 2016 after he clashed with other advisers over how to appeal to the broader general electorate after Trump won the nomination.

Ellis, who has been on the bench for 31 years, alternately cracked jokes and pressed lawyers for Manafort's and Mueller's office on their legal positions. None of the charges levied against Manafort pertain to his work on the Trump campaign, and both the Trump team and Russian Federation have maintained that there was no collusion.

On Thursday, Andrew Weissmann, Mueller's deputy, told the judge that prosecutors preferred to move forward on the Virginia case first, estimating that it would take between eight to 10 days to complete, and require up to 25 government witnesses.
