Prosecutors laid out their case against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in a Virginia courtroom Tuesday. Assistant U.S. Attorney Uzo Asonye told jurors that Manafort orchestrated a multimillion-dollar conspiracy to evade U.S. tax and banking laws and that he considered himself above the law as he funneled tens of millions of dollars through offshore accounts. Asonye said that Manafort used that “secret income” to live a lavish lifestyle.
