Paul Manafort is scheduled to go to trial for financial fraud charges starting on Tuesday, July 31, 2018. In anticipation, here’s what you need to know about his charges and how this case fits into the Special Counsel’s Investigation. *Our sources are limited to October of 2017 when we started collecting Headlines*

According to Agents of Influence, Paul Manafort was an adviser to the U.S. presidential campaigns of Republicans Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, and Bob Dole. In 1980, Manafort co-founded the Washington, D.C.-based lobbying firm Black, Manafort & Stone. Manafort was the Chairman to Donald Trump during the 2016 Presidential Campaign and remained close with the President until his arrest.

Manafort often lobbied on behalf of controversial foreign leaders such as former President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych, former dictator of the Philippines Ferdinand Marcos, former dictator of Zaire Mobutu Sese Seko, and Angolan guerrilla leader Jonas Savimbi. Lobbying to serve the interests of foreign governments requires registration with the Justice Department under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA); however, as of June 2, 2017, Manafort had not registered. On June 27 he retroactively registered as a foreign agent. wiki source
