Paul Manafort’s personal spending isn’t relevant to the tax- and bank-fraud charges against him at this point in his trial, the judge overseeing the case said.

U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III’s comments came at the start of the third day of trial in Alexandria, Virginia, which is expected to include more testimony from Manafort’s vendors, followed by appearances by his accountant and bookkeepers.
