Once the midterm elections are over, special counsel Robert Mueller is expected to deliver his conclusions on whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation and whether President Trump obstructed justice, CNN and Bloomberg reported this week.

Manafort's defense attorney, Kevin Downing, told Judge T.S. Ellis that Manafort's health has suffered as a result of his incarceration.

A judge has set a February sentencing date for Paul Manafort, who appeared in court Friday for a post-trial hearing in a wheelchair and green jail jumpsuit. Prosecutors had wanted to wait until Manafort's cooperation was complete before proceeding to sentencing, where he could face as many as 10 years on the Virginia charges. He wore a white sock on his right foot and a shoe on his left.

Ellis launched barbs at the prosecution, and at one point - in a rare admission - instructed jurors during the trial to put aside his own remarks from the day before saying that he was "probably wrong".

On Friday, Judge Ellis ordered that the outstanding charges be dismissed.

Manafort was convicted of eight tax and bank fraud crimes by a Virginia jury in August.

He faced a separate trial in Washington but pleaded guilty instead to two conspiracy counts. Lawyers for both parties have agreed to recommend to the courts to allow the sentences for some charges to run concurrently as they deal with similar conduct. Manafort said he laundered more than $30 million, cheated the USA of $15 million in taxes and failed to tell US authorities about a secret lobbying campaign he undertook on behalf of Ukraine. That report will help recommend a guideline range so that Judge Ellis can determine what sentence to impose.
