Mr. Manafort has pleaded not guilty to charges of concealing the proceeds from his Ukraine political work
The Ukrainian government has reportedly frozen investigations into former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort, who faces separate criminal charges in the United States.
This March, the State Department approved selling $47m (£34.5m) worth of missiles and equipment to Ukraine, saying it “would contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by improving the security of Ukraine”.
After being interviewed by special counsel investigators on Wednesday, former aide to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign Michael Caputo told CNN that Robert Mueller’s team is “focused on Russia collusion.”
“It’s clear they are still really focused on Russia collusion,” Caputo said, adding, “They know more about the Trump campaign than anyone who ever worked there.”
“The Senate and the House are net fishing,” Caputo said. “The special counsel is spearfishing. They know what they are aiming at and are deadly accurate.”
