Former Trump campaign Chairman Paul Manafort failed to persuade a Washington judge to dismiss a federal indictment accusing him of money laundering and working as an unregistered foreign agent.

U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson rejected Manafort’s dismissal bid Tuesday, clearing the way for a trial in September. Separately, a judge in Virginia is weighing a similar request to dismiss a tax- and bank-fraud case against him there.

“It was logical and appropriate for investigators tasked with the investigation of ‘any links’ between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign to direct their attention to him,” Jackson wrote in her ruling.
