One day after pleading not guilty prosecutors due to connections and his riches described as a flight risk Paul Manafort.
According to court records, prosecutors say they believe Manafort -- a former chairman of Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign -- and his company associate Richard Gates were at risk of fleeing.
"The defendants pose a danger of flight based on the severe nature of the charges, their history of unreliable and misleading conduct, the possibly significant sentences the defendants face, the strong indication of guilt, their vital financial resources, and their overseas connections," the court records read.
Manafort is proven to have a significant quantity of wealth. Between 2012 and 2016, he listed his assets to be between $19 million and $136 million, that the New York Daily News reported.
"His financial holdings are large, if difficult to quantify precisely," Tuesday's documents revealed.
The 68-year-old was also being considered a flight risk because of his foreign connections. The Washington Post noted that Manafort retains three U.S. passports and has filed ten passport applications in the last several decades.
Prosecutors note that Manafort also has rich ties to Moscow and also to Kiev, Ukraine, through his previous business dealings. His travel schedule in the year reveals the numerous connections Manafort has overseas, raising the prospect of flight, '' prosecutors said.
The court documents brought the era of Manafort up, saying he could be inclined to flee using a guilty verdict.
Manafort pleaded not guilty Monday after being indicted on 12 counts by a federal grand jury as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into possible meddling and collusion.
The special counsel's office told Fox News that the counts include conspiracy against the USA, conspiracy to launder money, an unregistered agent of a foreign leader, false and deceptive Foreign Agent Registration (FARA) statements, seven counts of failure to file reports of overseas banks and financial accounts.
Manafort's bond was set at $10 million. He'll go back to court Thursday to listen to the conditions of his bond.
