Greg Craig trial

Jurors at the trial of Greg Craig saw evidence on Wednesday that the former Obama White House counsel complied with a request from ex-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort for a backdated and irregular $1.25 million invoice for a politically sensitive project that Craig undertook for the government of Ukraine.

The jury also heard more details about the unusual funding arrangement for the report Craig prepared in 2012 on Ukraine’s prosecution of one of its former prime ministers, Yulia Tymoshenko, on abuse-of-office charges. While the review by Craig’s law firm Skadden Arps was commissioned by Ukraine’s Ministry of Justice, it was secretly funded by a Ukrainian steel magnate, Viktor Pinchuk, who ultimately forked over about $4.1 million for the project.
