President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager has plead not guilty again, after US Special Counsel Robert Mueller filed additional charges.

This time, Paul Manafort pleaded not guilty to charges ranging from bank fraud to filing false tax returns.

The additional criminal charges were brought up in the midst of an investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Instead of negotiating a plea deal, Manafort has chosen to face a jury trial set to begin in July.

Manafort previously pleaded not guilty to charges including conspiracy to launder money, and failing to register as a foreign agent.
