The first trial from the Mueller investigation is underway with jury selection in suburban DC.

Paul Manafort is accused of failing to report millions from Ukrainian political consulting fees. Though the prosecution isn’t related to Manafort’s former job as Trump campaign chairman, it’s a big test of Mueller’s ability to prosecute a complex case.
