A proposed evidence list submitted by special counsel prosecutors over the weekend indicates Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom and Greg Craig, former of counsel at the firm, will be featured in the Washington, D.C., trial of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

The list—which includes invoices from Skadden in 2012 and 2013, and communications with Craig and another Skadden partner, Ken Gross—previews the prosecution’s plan to put a heavy spotlight on Manafort’s past Ukrainian lobbying efforts.

The proposed items are part of the government’s case against Manafort in the District, where the former Trump campaign chair and longtime lobbyist is fighting charges that he conspired to launder money, tampered with and conspired to tamper with witnesses, failed to disclose his past foreign lobbying work and made false Foreign Agents Registration Act statements to the U.S. Manafort’s jury trial is set to begin Sept. 17.

The list, which was submitted over the weekend, includes about 2,000 exhibits—about five times the amount of evidence they presented during the trial in Alexandria, Virginia. Manafort’s work with Skadden did not come up in the Virginia trial, where he was found guilty last week of eight counts of bank and tax fraud and failing to disclose a foreign bank account.
