Manafort's lawyer actually argued that his work for Yanukovych was to "bring the country closer to Western democracies after decades of Soviet rule."
Prosecutor's say Manafort became wealthy from the "cash spigot" that came from working for his 'golden goose in Ukraine," former President Viktor Yanukovych, said Asonye. "Manafort placed himself and his money over the law," the prosecutor said.
Prosecutors told jurors that Manafort owned several homes, acquired real estate in New York and Virginia, bought expensive cars and watches, and even got a $15,000 jacket "made from an ostrich."
Manafort's defense attorney laid out his side of the case, shifting much of the blame to the Ukrainian oligarchs Manafort worked for. "This is the way that they required it to be done," his attorney said, explaining why oligarchs paid Manafort through secret foreign accounts.
A jury of six men and six women has been sworn in and opening statements will begin soon in the criminal trial of Paul Manafort.
