A hearing in the conspiracy case against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort goes before a federal judge today in Washington, DC.

Today's hearing will focus on the terms of former campaign manager's bail conditions. Bail was set at 10-million-dollars and Manafort had to surrender his three U.S. passports.
Manafort and former business associate Rick Gates are accused of, among other things, laundering millions obtained from Russian and Ukrainian oligarchs.
The men are currently under house detention.
