Former Trump campaign chief Manafort found guilty of fraud charges; US President alleges foul play

Washington, Aug 22 (IBNS): A court in the USA has found former campaign chief of American President Donald Trump guilty of multiple fraud charges, prompting the latter to allege foul play.

Paul Manafort has been found guilty of tax fraud, bank fraud and failing to disclose overseas banks accounts, reports said.

However, the jury in the Virginia court failed to reach a consensus on 10 other charges, prompting the judge to declare a mistrial on those.

Unhappy with the conviction, Trump said that it was a part of the witch hunt against him, following his election win in 2016.

"It's a very sad thing that happened," Trump told reporters while attending a rally in West Virginia on Tuesday evening. He added that it had nothing to do with the Russia collusion.
