On Tuesday morning, not long before jury selection began in former Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort’s Virginia trial, lawyers for special counsel Robert Mueller filed an updated exhibit list.

The list of more than 400 exhibits remains largely unchanged from the original list filed earlier in July, and Mueller’s team will likely not use all of the exhibits listed, but the special counsel’s lawyers added new exhibits for a few of the key storylines laid out in the lead-up to the trial.

Mueller’s team added a few new items related to the loan Manafort allegedly obtained from Federal Savings Bank, run by Steve Calk, the banker interested in a Trump administration position. Those items include the journal of a former bank employee granted immunity to testify and an email with the subject line “Nervousness is setting in.”

The exhibit list also includes new documents related to the purchase of Yankees season tickets, a photograph of the outdoor kitchen at one of Manafort’s homes, and an email from Manafort to his longtime deputy Rick Gates about “DOD Service secretaries.”
