Manafort and Gates pleaded not guilty to all charges. A judge set bond at $10 million for Manafort, and $5 million for Gates. Both sides agreed to home detention.

The special counsel?s office told Fox News that the counts include conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false and misleading Foreign Agent Registration (FARA) statements, false statements and seven counts of failure to file reports of foreign banks and financial accounts.

"President Donald Trump was correct. There is no evidence the Trump Campaign colluded with the Russia government," Kevin Downing, an attorney for Manafort, responded, referencing earlier tweets and statements from the president. "A claim that maintaining offshore accounts to bring all your funds into the United States, as a scheme to conceal from the United States government, is ridiculous."

Downing said outside court earlier Monday that Manafort was "seeking to further democracy and to help the Ukraine come closer to the United States and the E.U."
