Expected star witness may not testify in Trump ex-aide Manafort's trial

Expected star witness may not testify in Trump ex-aide Manafort's trial | 01 Aug 2018 | U.S. prosecutors raised the possibility on Wednesday that an expected star witness may not testify against President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, while Trump asked for an end to the Russia probe that led to the charges. On the second day of Manafort's trial, the first stemming from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's 14-month investigation of Russia's [alleged] role in the 2016 U.S. election, the judge also tried to rein in prosecutors in their description of Manafort's 'lavish' lifestyle. Manafort's consulting work for pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine that earned him $60 million also took the spotlight in testimony in federal court in the Washington suburb of Alexandria, Virginia.
