Manafort Loses Bid To Have Charges Dismissed

Reuters reports:

President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort lost a bid on Friday to have certain criminal charges by a U.S. special counsel dismissed, including one count that he conspired to launder money. Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who is presiding over Manafort’s case in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, said in a ruling that she will not dismiss charges against Manafort related to money laundering or false statements concerning whether he was required to register as a foreign agent for the then pro-Russia Ukrainian government.
