Paul Manafort Denies US Fraud Charges, This Time in Virginia

09 March 2018

In Virginia, Manafort is accused of filing false tax returns, failing to report money in overseas accounts, and misleading banks on paperwork for millions in real-estate loans.

U.S. District Court Judge T.S. Ellis III placed Manafort on home confinement and required him to wear a Global Positioning System bracelet pending his trial date of July 10.

Manafort also pleaded not guilty last week in Washington, to related charges, including conspiracy to launder money, and failing to register as a foreign agent for the pro-Russia Ukrainian government of former President Viktor Yanukovych.

U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller brought them as part of a wide-ranging probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, possible obstruction of justice, and alleged financial crimes by Manafort and others.

Aldon Smith turns self in, makes bail, following SF domestic-violence charges
Smith, 28, was being sought by S.F. police after he fled the scene when his fiancee called 911 on Saturday night. Aldon Smith's fiancee says she's the alleged victim in a domestic violence incident.

But Manafort, a veteran Washington Republican political consultant, has refused to do a deal and will go to trial instead.

Paul Manafort last week pleaded not guilty in a related case in Washington, D.C., where he is set to go to trial September 17.

In a separate development Thursday, another former Trump campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, met with the House Intelligence Committee for a second time as part of the panel's Russian Federation investigation. It is expected to last eight to 10 days.

The mystery man sported a full white beard, black beanie hat and sunglasses as he extended his hands upward while Manafort arrived at the Albert V. Bryan Courthouse in Virginia.

Jackson issued the gag order in November, saying that Manafort and others involved in the case had to "refrain from making statements to the media or in public settings" to avoid tainting a jury with pretrial publicity. Downing suggested Thursday that Manafort would like to face all the charges in Virginia. In court papers, prosecutors said they asked Manafort if he'd be willing to waive venue and have the case consolidated in the District, but he refused.

Manafort is innocent of the Virginia charges, his spokesman Jason Maloni said after the indictment was announced.

Manafort's case is before Judge T.S. Ellis III, a senior judge appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1987.

Manafort is already on home confinement and under Global Positioning System monitoring in the District.
