The jury’s still out on whether the Manafort trial will be remembered for a tacky $15,000 ostrich jacket or a guilty verdict that sends one of Trump’s former aides to the slammer for decades. But one thing is certain: The trial itself is one of the biggest stories of the Trump era so far, and the Russia investigation looms large above it.

Whatever the next twist in the story may be, The Daily Beast’s Rabbit Hole has brought you in-depth coverage of the trial from day one, from Manafort’s questionable fashion sense to the millions in undeclared income he allegedly stowed away in foreign bank accounts.
