Manafort's trial delayed until end of July

A federal judge on Monday granted special counsel Robert Mueller's request to give immunity to five witnesses testifying in the Virginia-based trial of Paul Manafort, which he delayed until next week.

U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III ordered the trial to start next week, on July 31. He said he would issue a ruling from the bench on the continuance as early as this afternoon when the hearing resumes after a short recess.

Prosecutors also disclosed that they will be presenting a limited amount of evidence regarding Manafort's connection to the Trump campaign as well as his ties to former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.

Manafort has pleaded not guilty to the charges and denied wrongdoing. It had been scheduled to begin Wednesday in Alexandria, Virginia.

In two criminal cases brought by the special counsel, Manafort has been charged with money laundering and tax evasion, among other things. "I'm not in the theater business".

Despite a request by Mueller to keep the name private until they testify, Ellis made them public - James Brennan, Donna Duggan, Conor O'Brien, Cindy Laporta and Dennis Raico.

Mueller's probe has led to multiple indictments and several guilty pleas from other Trump associates, including Rick Gates, a former Trump deputy campaign chairman who worked with Manafort.

The court will proceed with jury questionnaires Tuesday and begin jury selection on July 31.

The case against Manafort stems from Mueller's Russian Federation probe, but prosecutors have indicated the case against Manafort will not explore Russia's attempted interference in the 2016 election.

The prosecution turned over 120,000 pages of documents this month as the trial date drew near.

The former Trump campaign manager is accused of lying to banks about his business income in order to get more than $20 million in loans.

Uzo Asonye, one of the prosecutors, told the judge Mueller's office believed Manafort had access the entire time to the accounting records.
