Paul Manafort is due back in court in September, and officials expect the upcoming trial to last about three weeks.
On Friday, the prosecution and defense attorneys filed documents with a federal court in DC, including a list of around 1,500 pieces of evidence.
The case will focus on Manafort’s work for politicians in the Ukraine, during the period between 2006 and 2017.
He has entered a not guilty plea to seven charges, including making false statements, as well as money laundering, and conspiring against the United States.
Meanwhile, A juror from the Paul Manafort trial said the president should not pardon him.
In a recent interview, Paula Duncan, who labels herself as a supporter of President Trump, said if he were to pardon Manafort, it would be a quote ‘big mistake.’
The Missouri-native further stated if he were pardoned, it would be like ‘saying it is okay to break the law.’
The trial is scheduled to begin on September 17th.
