A federal judge on Monday revealed the identities of the five witnesses that were granted immunity to testify against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

The witnesses, who Mueller’s team submitted for immunity last week and whose identities were not released publicly until Monday, are James Brennan, Donna Duggan, Conor O’Brien, Cindy Laporta and Dennis Raico, according to Talking Points Memo.

Each of the witnesses are connected to financial institutions, according to The Washington Post’s Rachel Weiner.Two expected witnesses in the case, Washington lobbyists Tony Podesta and Vin Weber, whose firms allegedly participated in a public relations campaign for Ukraine with Manafort, are not among the immunized witness, Talking Points Memo reported.
