ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was in court Tuesday for the opening day of his criminal trial on bank and fraud charges brought by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Manafort appeared at the federal courthouse in Alexandria, Va., wearing a black business suit. His wife sat behind him in the courtroom.

At one point, Manafort ran his fingers through his graying hair and gave the jury pool a quick, close-lipped smile.

Opening arguments are slated to begin Tuesday afternoon following the final selection of jury members. Tuesday morning was spent narrowing the pool of 65 jurors down to 12 members and four alternates.
