U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III made the decision Thursday when Manafort was arraigned on additional charges filed by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign.

He is also facing a second case in federal court in Virginia, where he pleaded not guilty to tax and fraud charges.

Manafort's former business partner, Rick Gates, has pleaded guilty in the District to conspiracy and lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

In Washington D.C., Manafort is charged with making false statements about his foreign lobbying work for pro-Russia Ukrainian politicians, and engaging in a money laundering conspiracy. The charges against Manafort don't relate to the election, although some of the alleged crimes occurred while he ran Trump's campaign.

The cases are U.S. v. Manafort, 18-cr-83, U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Virginia (Alexandria), and U.S. v. Manafort, 17-cr-201, U.S. District Court, District of Columbia (Washington).

Gates who was a Trump campaign aide, pleaded guilty on February 23 for lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and for conspiracy to defraud the U.S.

The alterations exaggerated his income so he could take out mortgages on properties he owned for years in New York City and the Hamptons, using the funds to pay for luxury items, clothes, trips, tuition and home renovations, prosecutors said. He faces up to 15 years on the charges of filing false tax returns and up to 20 years on the charges of failing to report foreign bank accounts. A judge placed him on house arrest after he pleaded not guilty to those charges.
