Prosecutors said in Friday's filing that they had learned of the payments to potential witnesses from financial records obtained from an unnamed financial institution.

"This course of action, and in particular its timing, suggests the defendant was attempting to further influence co-conspirators who might provide information against him in light of the recently re-emerging allegations", the prosecutors said.
