Paul Manafort became the first person to face trial in the Russia probe this week. President Trump's former campaign chair's trial is focused on bank and tax fraud charges. The prosecution's opening statement included claims that Manafort opened more than 30 foreign bank accounts to hide his income from Ukraine and once spent $15,000 on an ostrich jacket. Manafort's bookkeeper Heather Washkuhn testified that he approved "every penny" of his personal expenses. The 69-year-old has pleaded not guilty to all the charges.

Other major headlines of the week included the presumed remains of U.S. soldiers killed in the Korean War returning home, the continued devastation caused by wildfires in California and Apple hitting $1 trillion stock market valuation.
