If he's found guilty on the charges in the Washington case, Manafort could be sentenced to almost 20 years in prison.
U.S. Senior Judge T.S. Ellis III picked the July date, though he did not foreclose the possibility of granting an extension to the defence if warranted.
Manafort resigned as Trump's campaign chairman in August 2016 after The New York Times reported a Ukrainian government corruption probe found Manafort received almost $13 million off the books from a pro-Russian Ukrainian political party. Prosecutors asked for the trial to come before a related trial Mr. Manafort is set to face in Washington in September, while Mr. Manafort requested a November date.
Paul Manafort is already charged with a slew of federal charges, including money laundering, in a D.C. court.
The charges in both cases relate to Manafort laundering some United States dollars 75 million in relation to his work for Russia-backed former Ukraine president Viktor Yanukovych between about 2006 and 2014.
In Washington, he faces counts of conspiracy to launder more than $30 million, making false statements, failing to follow lobbying disclosure laws, and working as an unregistered foreign agent.
Prosecutor Andrew Weissmann said his case would likely take 8 to 10 trial days and involve 20 to 25 witnesses.
However, the judge agreed that Manafort should still be subject to the less-rigorous home confinement but that he must now wear two wrist bracelets, enabling probation officials based in both Washington and Virginia to monitor his movements. The charges include preparing false tax returns, bank fraud, conspiracy to commit bank fraud and failure to disclose income from foreign sources. The indictment also accuses him of bank fraud, saying that when his income from the Ukraine dried up, he lied on mortgages and loan applications about his finances.
In one instance, Manafort allegedly dealt with an unpaid $300,000 American Express bill by telling a bank that Gates had borrowed his credit card and run up the charges, the indictment says.
