Kyiv: The authorities in the Manhattan area have charged the former head of Donald Trump's campaign headquarters, Paul Manafort, with charges of fraud in the housing mortgage market for the purpose of illegal enrichment.
This was announced by Manhattan Attorney Cyrus Vance.
“Manafort is charged with carrying out a fraudulent housing mortgage scheme and fraudulent business documents during the year to illegally receive millions of dollars,” he said.
According to him, the investigation against Manafort launched in March 2017.
A court in Washington earlier sentenced Trump's former campaign headquarters to 3.5 years in prison.
