  • Paul Manafort gets a trial date

Manafort, who was caught up in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation, was arraigned in Virginia, where he was indicted on bank fraud and other charges in February - four months after he was indicted in Washington on conspiracy and money-laundering charges.

At the request of prosecutors, charges against Gates have been dropped in the Virginia court, though they could be revived if he fails to live up to his plea agreement.

A trial was set for July 10.

The grand jury indictment in the Washington suburb of Alexandria, Virginia, accuses Manafort of hiding from the Internal Revenue Service tens of millions of dollars he earned advising pro-Russia politicians in Ukraine.

SC sets aside Kerala HC order annulling Hadiya's marriage
SC orders Kerala Police to share with NIA the probe details of the case described by the HC as an instance of "love jihad". The Supreme Court in its verdict said the girl had appeared before the court on November 27 and admitted her marriage.

Prosecutor Andrew Weissmann said in court that the special counsel's office has already turned over all relevant documents to Manafort's attorneys and was ready to go to trial soon. A trial on federal charges in Washington, DC, is scheduled to begin in September.

That agreement requires him to offer information on any matters that special counsel Robert Mueller deems relevant.

Deripaska, who Manafort offered to give private updates on the Trump campaign's status when he was its helm, went on to charge people suspicious of the Trump campaign's connections to Russian Federation with making it up as a means to boost the military.

Manafort is also accused of having altered a slew of financial statements connected to a consulting business he shared with partner Richard Gates.

They believe Manafort laundered $30 million before Yankukovych was ousted from the Ukraine in 2014, but in total "more than $75 million flowed through offshore accounts", the superseding indictment said.

The other former Trump associates who have pleaded guilty and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors are Trump's former national security adviser Mike Flynn and ex-campaign adviser George Papadopoulos.

He was pictured holding a sign that read "Blood Money" outside the federal courthouse in which former Trump advisor Rick Gates pleaded guilty to federal conspiracy and false statements charges.

"The new allegations against Mr. Manafort, once again, have nothing to do with Russian Federation and 2016 election interference/collusion", the statement said.
