Manafort Pleads Not Guilty To Conspiracy And Money Laundering Charges


Paul Manafort and his business partner Rick Gates pleaded not guilty Monday to a 12-count indictment charging them with making tens of millions of dollars while secretly working for the Ukrainian government and then hiding the money from the U.S. government.

The two former Trump aides are charged with funneling $75 million through offshore shell companies while secretly working with a pro-Russian political party in the Ukraine as well as the country’s ousted President Viktor Yanukovych.

They surrendered to authorities Monday morning, when the indictment was unsealed, and face up to 20 years in prison on conspiracy to launder money charges. Read more at NY POST.
