A federal judge is set to hear arguments on whether President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman can be removed from home confinement as the criminal case against him moves forward.

ABC News reports, Paul Manafort and business associate Rick Gates surrendered last week to face charges brought by special counsel Robert Mueller.

A federal magistrate last week ordered Manafort and Gates to be placed on home confinement. They're planning to ask a judge in court Monday to lift those conditions.

The men are accused of laundering the profits of foreign consulting work performed on behalf of a Ukrainian political party and concealing those assets from the U.S. government. They have pleaded not guilty.
