Greg Craig trial: One of two charges dropped

One of two felony counts in the indictment against former Obama White House counsel Greg Craig has been dropped, just a week before his trial is scheduled to begin. Judge Amy Berman Jackson dismissed the second count, which charged him with making false and misleading statements in a letter to the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) unit of the Justice Department in October 2013.

Craig was indicted in April over his statements about his law firm's work on behalf of Ukraine. The case is part of a foreign lobbying investigation spun off from special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. He has pleaded not guilty.
