A federal judge on Monday approved Paul Manafort's request to delay his trial start date, giving attorneys for both Manafort and the special counsel Robert Mueller until July 31 to prepare.
U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis sided with Manafort's team and granted the delay, but it was much shorter than the extension defense lawyers requested.
Attorneys for Manafort said that they needed more time to review some 120,000 pages of documents, including documents and images taken from electronic devices belonging to Manafort's former business partner Rick Gates, that were "at the heart of the issue" in the case. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The judge also agreed to provide immunity from prosecution to James Brennan, Dennis Raico, Cindy Laporta, Donna Duggan and Conor O'Brien.
The trial scheduled to start on Wednesday involves 16 counts including bank and tax fraud and failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts.

In a filing last week, attorneys with the special counsel's office said the witnesses must remain confidential because they would be subject to "undue harassment" if their identities were revealed.
