Defense attorneys for Paul Manafort — President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, who is facing tax evasion, bank fraud and money laundering charges — rested their case Tuesday, after calling no witnesses.

Earlier Tuesday, Judge T.S. Ellis heard arguments in the defense’s motion for acquittal, which he denied.

Manafort is accused of failing to report millions of dollars that he was paid for political consulting work in Ukraine, before he briefly served as Trump’s campaign chairman in 2016, and lying to obtain loans to keep his cash flow going. The charges do not involve Manafort’s time with Trump.
