Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has entered a plea of not guilty to charges of bank fraud and tax crimes in federal court in Alexandria, Virginia, CNN reports.
Judge TS Ellis set the trial to begin July 10.
Prosecutors told said in court they planned to call 20-25 witnesses and said their arguments could last up to two weeks.
This will be the first of two trials for Manafort this year. A trial on federal charges in Washington, DC, is scheduled to begin in September.
Manafort is charged in Washington with making false statements about his foreign lobbying work, which he primarily did for Ukrainian politicians, and engaging in a money laundering conspiracy.
His 18 criminal charges in Virginia federal court -- which total more than the five he faces in Washington and carry a much heavier potential prison sentence -- accuse him of bank fraud and lying on income tax returns and regarding his foreign bank accounts.
He has denied all charges in both courts.
