Manafort Request To Move Trial Denied

(Alexandria, VA) — A Virginia judge is refusing to move next week’s trial for former Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort. Manafort’s legal team had asked to move the trial from Alexandria to Roanoke. They argued that having the case play out near Washington, DC would make it difficult for Manafort to get a fair trial. Manafort is facing charges of bank fraud and failing to register as a foreign agent for his work in Ukrainian politics. The charges came as a result of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s [[ MULL-ers ]] investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election. As Mueller prepares for the upcoming trial, his team has requested immunity for five potential witnesses against Manafort.
