Former US President Donald Trump's campaign chief, Paul Manafort, and his business associate, Rick Gates, returned to the U.S. Courthouse in Washington DC on Tuesday, following Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s proposal to set a trial date related to the Russian probe for May 14. The court, however, found the May date to be too soon given the material scope, suggesting the trial could not begin... Еще any earlier than autumn, before November's midterm elections. The charges against Manafort and Gates include conspiracy against the US; conspiracy to launder money; and acting as an unregistered foreign agent as well as counts related to failing to file reports for foreign bank accounts. The duo have been confined to their homes since pleading not guilty to charges stemming from the investigation on Russia's role in the 2016 US elections.
