As the first criminal trial of a major figure in U.S. President Donald Trump's 2016 election campaign got underway in Virginia last week, observers have wondered to what extent not only Paul Manafort, his campaign manager for a crucial period, but also Trump himself is in the dock.When Manafort went to work on Trump's campaign in late March 2016, all appeared normal.Manafort offered to work for Trump for free he eagerly sought the job but it turns out that he was dead broke at the time.Manafort's role in the campaign was to help Trump sew up the nomination and run the Republican Party convention, at which Trump's victory would become official.Manafort was forced out of the Trump campaign in August 2016 . While Manafort's trial the first of two he faces does not directly involve Trump (at least so far), it is believed to be one of the things agitating Trump, who has seemed even more unhinged than usual lately. Trump is talking as if he had barely met Manafort.
