But when they tried to submit into evidence photos of the suits, U.S. District Judge Judge T.S. Ellis III reprimanded them.

Speaking during his opening monologue on "Hannity" Tuesday night, Sean called-out the mainstream media's hysterical coverage of the Paul Manafort trial; adding these charges have "nothing to do" with President Trump or Russian Federation collusion.

U.S. President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort on Tuesday will become the first person to go to trial after being ensnared in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Things like a $21,000 Limited Edition black titanium Royal Way watch with crystal, a Mercedes Benz for his wife, and a $15,000 jacket made of ostrich.

The prosecution's focus on Manafort's personal finances - at times laid out in painstaking detail - underscored the vast amount of documents accumulated by special counsel Robert Mueller's team in their case against the longtime political consultant. Mueller was not present in the courtroom. Duggan is an insurance agent with Moody Insurance Worldwide who worked on insurance related to a Brooklyn, New York, townhouse against which Manafort borrowed money from Federal Savings Bank.

When Capone stood trial in 1931, prosecutors needed a way to show that the mobster - not the kind to leave a paper trial when it came to income - was making a lot of money.

Big Mac turns 50

"Rick Gates had his hands in the cookie jar and he didn't want his boss to find out", defense lawyer Thomas Zehnle told the court during his opening statement on Tuesday, accusing Gates of being "willing to say anything to save himself".

Gates is expected to be a star witness at the trial.

Gates, a longtime Manafort deputy who also worked in a senior role in the Trump campaign, had initially been charged alongside Manafort, but in February announced he would plead guilty to charges of conspiracy against the US and lying to federal authorities.

Prosecutors charged Manafort and his then-associate Rick Gates with two counts of bank fraud and two counts of bank fraud conspiracy for allegedly providing misleading information to secure two loans worth $16 million.

Ellis, who warned prosecutors against using the word "oligarchs" to describe wealthy Ukrainians, several times admonished them for spending so much time documenting Manafort's extravagant lifestyle.

The prosecution called multiple witnesses to highlight and explain specific expensive payments Manafort had made.

Paul Manafort spent over $1.5 million on custom suits and bespoke clothing between 2010 and 2014, often paying by foreign bank wire transfers, two luxury menswear retailers told a federal court in Virginia on Wednesday.

His ERA has fluctuated month to month , and he has had a awful July, posting an 0-3 record with a 7.41 ERA through four starts. In 23 games with the Pirates this season, Osuna, 25, is batting.196 with two home runs, two doubles and seven RBIs.

Defense lawyers also sought to address head-on Manafort's wealth and the images of a gaudy lifestyle that jurors are expected to see.

It contained an imprint of his company's logo but billed for architectural services and listed as the client a company called Global Endeavor, which court records say is tied to Manafort.

The prosecution's strategy may be complicated by judge Ellis' restrictive perimeter on evidence.

Prosecutors made no reference to Trump in their opening statement nor discussed in any way Manafort's leadership of the Trump campaign, or the ongoing investigation into potential collusion between Russian Federation and the president's associates.

Trump has insisted that he did not collude with Russian Federation and has many times called the probe a "witch hunt".

"There was No Collusion (except by Crooked Hillary and the Democrats)!" A jury of six men and six women was ultimately selected, along with four alternate jurors. The former political manager will have another trial in September across the river in Washington on charges of false statements to investors and failing to register as a foreign agent.
