A federal judge in Virginia Monday abruptly canceled the Judgment Day hearing for former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, originally scheduled for next month.
The hearing, where Mr. Manafort would have learned his fate for a lot of financial fraud crimes were originally set for February 8. But US District Judge TS Ellis said it was "cautious" to delay the hearing due to a separate but related dispute in Washington, DC
"Because it appears that resolving the current dispute in the defendant's prosecution in the District of Columbia can have no effect on judgment in this case, it is cautious and appropriate to delay the judgment in this case until the dispute in the DC case is resolved, Judge Ellis said Monday.
He did not set a new date.
Mr. Manafort and his team are currently engaged in a battle with Specialist Robert Mueller's team, claiming that he violated his co-operation agreement by lying to investigators. Defend lawyers dispute claiming.
A hearing is scheduled Monday through before a federal judge in Washington to determine whether Manafort onions to investigators.
Both cases were brought by Mueller, a jury in Alexandria, Virginia, found him guilty of eight financial fraud services, but Manafort was guilty of Washington violating foreign lobby laws.
