Federal Judge Denies Paul Manafort's Request To Dismiss Charges Against Him

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort

CNN reports that a federal judge has denied former Donald Trump campaign chairman's request to invalidate the criminal case again him brought by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Manafort's legal team argued that the Special Counsel's orders were too broad and that Mueller had overstepped his legal authority.

But federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson ruled that Mueller's investigation and his prosecution of Manafort are legal.

Manafort maintains his innocence to charges related to his work as a lobbyist for Ukrainian politicians.
