Manafort, who was indicted in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, has pleaded not guilty in D.C. district court to conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money and making false statements, among other charges.

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 USA presidential elections and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

The federal judge in Virginia set July 10 as the start of Manafort's trial.

Manafort's former business partner, Rick Gates, pleaded guilty in D.C.to conspiracy and lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

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.

Manafort's longtime business partner, Rick Gates, is among three former Trump aides who have pleaded guilty to assortment of charges and have agreed to cooperate with Mueller's team of prosecutors.

The new indictment says Manafort and Gates passed the money they received from Ukraine through foreign bank accounts to hide it from the Internal Revenue Service. The other, which will begin on September 17 in Washington, D.C., is for additional charges, including money laundering and failure to register as a foreign agent.

That agreement requires him to offer information on any matters that special counsel Robert Mueller deems relevant. Jurors will hear from 20 to 25 witnesses over a trial that will last eight to 10 days, prosecutors said.

President Trump's one-time campaign manager, Manafort was greeted by shouts of "traitor" as he arrived at the courthouse. For legal reasons, he has two cases in two courts.

Ellis also questioned the efficiency of running simultaneous prosecutions in the District and Virginia, though he acknowledged that Manafort could not be forced to waive his right to be tried in the proper venue.

Manafort is innocent of the Virginia charges, his spokesperson Jason Maloni said in a statement after the indictment was announced.

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