  • Paul Manafort gets a trial date

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort just pleaded not guilty to conspiracy, tax and fraud charges.

It was the second time in two weeks that Manafort entered a not guilty plea to federal charges.

During the hearing in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Judge T.S. Ellis III put Paul Manafort on home confinement, requiring him to wear a Global Positioning System monitoring device, and set a trial for July 10.

On February 28 Manafort, 68, also pleaded not guilty in a Washington court to charges of money laundering, illegal lobbying and lying, setting up the first trial to result from Mueller's investigation.

Supreme Court restores Hadiya-Shafin Marriage
The Supreme Court of India on Thursday set aside the Kerala High Court's order which annulled Hadiya and Shafin Jahan's marriage. In November 2017, the top court directed Hadiya to resume her internship, and that she was free to meet whomever she wanted.

The charges are connected to work Manafort did for a pro-Russia political party in Ukraine.

None of the charges against Manafort make reference to alleged Russian interference in the election nor the accusations of collusion between Moscow and Trump's campaign.

The new indictment says Manafort and Gates passed the money they received from Ukraine through foreign bank accounts to hide it from the Internal Revenue Service.

A judge in Washington had previously set a trial date for September 17 on an earlier set of charges from special counsel Robert Mueller.

One of the new games revealed is a remake of the GameCube classic Luigi's Mansion , which will be available for the 3DS. This remake has an updated look and new features, like a map that displays on the bottom screen and a boss rush mode.

The mystery man sported a full white beard, black beanie hat and sunglasses as he extended his hands upward while Manafort arrived at the Albert V. Bryan Courthouse in Virginia.

Mr. Mueller alleges Mr. Manafort shielded from the IRS millions of dollars he earned as a consultant and lobbyist for the Ukrainian government. They say he used funds from secret offshore accounts to enjoy a life of luxury. In court papers, prosecutors said they asked Manafort if he'd be willing to waive venue and have the case consolidated in the District, but he refused. Deripaska sued Manafort and his deputy Rick Gates in January for $25 million in damages stemming from a failed business deal. A judge placed him on house arrest after he pleaded not guilty to those charges.

Meanwhile, at the federal court in Washington, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson said she will hold a motion hearing on April 4 to consider whether a lawsuit Manafort against the Department of Justice should be be dismissed.
