The mysterious protester held up a sign that read "Blood money" as Rick Gates, a former top adviser to President Donald Trump's, entered federal court, where he pleaded guilty to federal conspiracy and false statements charges.
The new indictment says Manafort and Gates passed the money they received from Ukraine through foreign bank accounts to hide it from the Internal Revenue Service. Jurors will hear from 20 to 25 witnesses over a trial that will last eight to 10 days, prosecutors said.
Manafort, who has been indicted on 32 counts by Mueller primarily related to bank fraud and his work for a Ukranian political party, wrote to an intermediary just before Trump accepted the Republican nomination that he'd be willing to give Deripaska "private briefings" if he required them.

Manafort spokesman Jason Maloni did put out a statement shortly after the indictment was announced. "Mr. Manafort is confident that he will be acquitted and violations of his constitutional rights will be remedied".
In Virginia, Manafort is accused of filing false tax returns, failing to report money in overseas accounts, and misleading banks on paperwork for millions in real-estate loans.
