All eyes on Virginia court as Paul Manafort’s fraud trial begins – Daily Mail

Protesters were present as Manafort’s trial on bank and tax fraud charges formally gets under way in Alexandria, VA, in the first trial brought by the Mueller probe. It is set to last at least three weeks. The pool of jurors will face questions from both sides, with Manafort’s legal team smiling as they arrived. U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III will try to weed out potential prejudice in what has become a highly publicized and politically divisive investigation. While the main areas of Mueller’s investigation are Russia’s actions during the 2016 presidential election and any attempts by Trump to obstruct justice, none of those topics are expected to come up in Manafort’s trial.
