Special counsel Robert Mueller is expected to present new evidence in court later this month connecting former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s bank fraud charges to President Trump’s campaign.
Prosecutors are expected to present evidence in Manafort’s Virginia trial, which is set to begin on July 25th, alleging that a banking executive helped him obtain roughly $16 million in loans while also trying to secure a position in the Trump campaign and administration, according to CNN.
The article goes on to state the following:
The bank executive “expressed interest in working on the Trump campaign, told [Manafort] about his interest, and eventually secured a position advising the Trump campaign,” the document read. He also “expressed an interest in serving in the administration of President Trump, but did not secure such a position.”
Prosecutors believe that the executive only approved Manafort’s loans because he worked for Trump and believed the favor would help secure him a position in his camp.
As the report notes, the allegations represent the first connection between Manafort’s case and the Trump campaign. The allegations were introduced in court documents filed Friday.
Russian collusion allegations are not expected to come up in the trial.
