A federal judge on Friday refused to dismiss a money laundering charge brought by Special Counsel Robert Mueller against President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort.


The ruling, by Judge Amy Berman Jackson in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, comes one day after she also denied a separate motion by Manafort to suppress evidence seized by the FBI in a storage locker.
