Former Obama White House counsel Greg Craig is set to go on trial in August after he was charged with lying to the Justice Department about his ties to the Ukrainian government.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia set an Aug. 12 trial date on Friday. The investigation by federal authorities in Craig was one of the 14 referrals that stemmed from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the allegations of the Trump campaign colluding with agents of the Russian government.

The article goes on to state the following:

Craig, 74, is charged with failing to register as an agent on behalf of Ukraine after he spent years as a lobbyist defending Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych’s jailing of a political opponent. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges, calling the prosecution “unprecedented and unjustified.”
