U.S. Special Counsel in the Russia probe Robert Mueller will request a trial date of May 14 for Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort and Manafort's associate Richard Gates, Mueller said in a court filing in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia Friday.

Manafort is charged with conspiring to launder money and failing to register as a foreign agent working on behalf of the government of Ukraine's former pro-Russia President Viktor Yanukovych.
