Prosecutors are presenting their closing argument in the financial fraud trial of onetime Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

Prosecutor Greg Andres is telling jurors that the case boils down to greed and deception. Andres says that when jurors follow the trail of Manafort's money, they'll find it's "littered" with lies.

Andres is making his final appeal to the jury after prosecutors spent more than two weeks putting on evidence they say proves Manafort concealed millions of dollars in offshore accounts from the IRS and later carried out a bank fraud scheme.

Manafort chose not to testify or call witness in his defense on the charges of tax evasion and bank fraud.

His lawyers are expected to make their closing argument later Wednesday.
