Manafort trial: Former bookkeeper Heather Washkuhn testifies she did not know about off-shore accounts as she details former Trump aide'sPaul Manafort’s former bookkeeper has testified that the former Donald Trump campaign chairman kept her in the dark about the foreign bank accounts he was using to allegedly buy millions in luxury items and personal expenses. Mr Manafort, facing trial on back fraud and tax charges otherwise approved “every penny” of the personal bills she paid for him, said Heather Washkuhn of the accounting firm NKFSB. Washkuhn’s testimony on the third day of the trial appeared to undercut an argument by Manafort’s attorneys that he can’t be responsible for financial fraud because he left the details of his spending to others, including his longtime associate Rick Gates.

The man was named by the Sun as  Bryn Jones, a former chief combustion technologist, who it said had been detained in connection with efforts by China to obtain classified information about Britain's new £100million RAF stealth fighter jet. The 73-year-old former Rolls-Royce employee was reportedly held after MI5 received information that classified details were passed to Beijing.
