Paul Manafort pleaded not guilty to additional charges from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

The new criminal charges include bank fraud and filing false tax returns.

A short-time campaign manager for the Trump campaign, Manafort has chosen to face a jury trial instead of seeking a plea deal.

US Special Counsel Robert Mueller filed the charges as part of a wide-ranging probe into Russian interference during the 2016 election, which found evidence of financial crimes by Manafort and others.
