Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort pleaded not guilty to a second indictment by special counsel Robert Mueller regarding charges of fraud and foreign bank account violations Thursday. He plans to seek a jury trial in Virginia.

Manafort was first charged in October for conspiracy against the United States and money laundering. (RELATED: Here’s The Indictment Against Paul Manafort And His Associate, Rick Gates)

Manafort’s business partner, Rick Gates, was also charged with conspiracy against the U.S., money laundering, and making false statements.
