 Trump, former campaign chairman, pleaded guilty to two accusations against him.


Reuters said mana Ford admitted guilty of conspiracy to commit treason and obstruction of justice. Bloomberg said that after pleading guilty, he could avoid second criminal trials.

According to previous media reports, Manafords first case, which opened in a federal court in Alexandra, Virginia, on August 21, was convicted of eight related offences, including bank fraud, tax fraud and the concealment of foreign bank accounts. This is the first trial of the Tung Ru Men special prosecutor Miller to investigate whether Russia intervened in the 2016 U.S. election.

Justice Jackson of the Washington, D.C. District Court, who presided over the second case, said Friday that in the second case, the prosecution may present evidence used in the first trial, but the jury is not allowed to hear about Manafords conviction. Manafords second case, which will be a jury selection on Sept. 17 and a trial presentation on Sept. 24, faces seven charges, including conspiracy to launder money, conspiracy to treason, failure to register as a foreign agent, false statements and interference with witnesses. Manafords defense attorneys had hoped that the second case would be moved outside Washington for fear that the outcome would be biased if it were tried in the Democratic town of Washington. But Jackson said she planned to reject the request because doubts about the political relationship of the Washington jury did not constitute the legal basis for the referral.
