The prosecutor who investigates Manafort’s case said that former Yanukovych’ spin doctor had “a huge dumpster of hidden money”, as Greg Andres, Special Assistant US Attorney, stated in court, Reuters reports.

“That wasn’t a cookie jar, it was a huge dumpster of hidden money in foreign bank accounts,” he specified.

It was noted that Manafort was buying antique rugs and fancy clothes, including a $15,000 jacket made of ostrich skin.

“Manafort made millions of dollars working for pro-Russian Ukrainian politicians before taking an unpaid position with Trump’s campaign. He was on the campaign team for five months and led it in mid-2016 when Trump was selected as the Republican presidential nominee,” the news agency reads.

Earlier, the trial of Manafort began in the US on July 31. He is accused of laundering money and evading taxes for almost 10 years of cooperation with the former leadership of Ukraine.

The investigation believes that Manafort earned more than $ 60 million for the work of the political consultant in Ukraine, but officially he declared 14 million dollars in revenues for 2010-2014.
