Manafort pleads not guilty to fraud charges

Manafort pleads not guilty at arraignment in Russia probe

The charges were brought as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

"Manafort and Gates generated tens of millions of dollars in income as a result of their Ukraine work", a February indictment said, "From approximately 2006 through the present, Manafort and Gates engaged in a scheme to hide income from United States authorities, while enjoying the use of the money".

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.

All charges, which Manafort has denied in both courts, were levied during the ongoing Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential elections and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

Toddler locks mother's iPhone for 47 years
A woman sets up her facial recognition as she looks at her Apple iPhone X at an Apple store in NY , on November 3, 2017. She told Kanka News that she can't really wait for 47 years and tell her grandchild that it was his father's mistake.

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort pleaded not guilty Thursday to tax evasion, bank fraud and other charges in Virginia.

The charges are connected to work Manafort did for a pro-Russia political party in Ukraine.

Manafort's lawyer, Kevin Downing, said his "rosy glasses" hope was it would not begin until November, or after the Washington trial presumably had ended. A trial on federal charges in Washington, DC, is scheduled to begin in September.

The mysterious protester held up a sign that read "Blood money" as Rick Gates, a former top adviser to President Donald Trump's, entered federal court, where he pleaded guilty to federal conspiracy and false statements charges.

Qualcomm takeover a national security risk, says US
In the past dozen years, Broadcom has spent six times as much on acquisitions as it has on research and development. Broadcom also took a swipe at Qualcomm's licensing business, which is a subject of dispute between the companies.

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.

Manafort will go to trial for the Virginia charges in July. For legal reasons, he has two cases in two courts. He faces up to 15 years on the charges of filing false tax returns and up to 20 years on the charges of failing to report foreign bank accounts.

In May 2017, Mueller was appointed to investigate Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 presidential election.
