Manafort, who spent several months as chairman of Donald Trump's presidential campaign in 2016, is accused of hiding at least $16 million United States in income from the IRS between 2010 and 2014 by disguising the money he earned advising politicians in Ukraine as loans and hiding it in foreign banks.
A day earlier, the defense rested their case without calling Manafort or any other witnesses the stand. Addressing the court for the first time during his trial, Manafort stood up and told Judge T.S. Ellis III that he did not want to testify.
