Why haven't they mentioned Russian collusion or meddling in our elections during the Manafort case?

    Because that's not what he's been indicted on. He's been indicted for various financial crimes related to his lobbying business. These all occurred before he joined the Trump campaign (although some may have continued while he was working for Trump)

    In the authorization for the Mueller investigation.... That authorization allows him to look for “links and cooperation” between the Trump campaign and the Russian effort to manipulate our elections. Even more importantly, it allows him to look into any possible crime that arises out of that investigation, which is a very broad mandate that basically means they can prosecute anything they come across in the course of the investigation that is illegal, regardless of whether it relates directly to Russia or not.

    So as far as we all know and have been told this trial is not about Russia, it's about the other crimes found.

    The judge ordered both sides not to because it is not relevant to the charges against him.

    Because it's a tax evasion and money laundering case for crimes that took place 10 years before Trump met Manafort. Still no evidence of any Russian ties to Trump to discuss, just a few porn stars, but that makes a lot of headlines for the fake news outlets.

    Mueller has no evidence of collusion between Manafort and Russia so he cannot bring that up in court. If he did, he could not prove it and the judge would throw out the case.
