"I can't wait to see all these people get what they deserve... justice. I think they should all be thrown in prison, including... I mean, Manafort's the first one and then I'll be here for all the other ones."

9. SOUNDBITE (English) Matt Rogers, Protester:
"Well, I mean, it's just absolutely ridiculous that this stuff has been going on for years and years and that they're just so brazen with their criminal behavior. The stuff that he's being tried for today isn't even all of what is believed that he did. And it's just about our democracy, it's really serious. I'm somebody who takes voter registration and getting out to vote very seriously and the fact that, the idea that we're not deciding our own elections, we're not deciding our own fate is completely unacceptable."

11. SOUNDBITE (English) Danny Hastings, Protester:
"I got up at 6 a.m. to come here, because I think that it's about time that people were held accountable for their actions and for the consequences of what they've done before. We've seen a lot of that in the past year and a half with people brazenly disregarding the rule of law and the right thing to do and as it says out here, justice delayed is justice denied and I'm really looking forward to actually seeing that come through. We've seen a lot with the special counsel being accused of being a witch hunt, being politically motivated, yet here are actual concrete charges that you don't just have to take somebody's word for it on TV, you can actually see the research, see the indictments, see what they're actually bringing their charges for. So I'm looking forward to seeing that - to seeing justice prevail, seeing the investigation go through, as it should. And seeing people held accountable, including Paul Manafort for what he's done."
The trial of Donald Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort on tax evasion and bank fraud charges got underway at a courthouse in Alexandria, Virginia on Tuesday.
Two questions loom large as Manafort prepares to walk into court: will he spend what effectively could be the rest of his life in prison, or will special counsel Robert Mueller be handed a defeat in his team's first trial since his appointment more than a year ago?
Those questions will be answered by 12 jurors selected this week who will face questions from both sides and US District Judge T.S. Ellis III, as they try to weed out potential prejudice in what has become a highly publicised and politically divisive investigation.
That task comes as the president and his lawyer-spokesman, Rudy Giuliani, have intensified their attempts to undermine the Mueller investigation in the court of public opinion.
The president criticised Mueller by name over the weekend and continues to refer to the special counsel investigation into Russian election interference as a "witch hunt" and "an illegal scam".
