Judge orders Paul Manafort moved to suburban Washington jail

Judge orders Paul Manafort moved to suburban Washington jail

"Paul Manafort came into the campaign very late and was with us for a short period of time", the president claimed in a tweet in July. Ellis denied Manafort's motion Wednesday and ordered Manafort transferred.

Prosecutors also said Mr. Manafort has access to his own separate workroom to meet with lawyers at the Northern Neck Jail in Warsaw, Virginia.

Judge T.S. Ellis rejected those concerns in moving Manafort to Alexandria. Manafort might be aware of this, so no wonder he's not looking particularly cheery about his current situation.

"Contrary to Manafort's assertions about his jail conditions, Manafort is in a private unit in which he can review materials and prepare for trial", Mueller's prosecutors wrote in a court filing. In the meantime, he said Manafort would be moved from the Northern Neck to the jail in Alexandria, in suburban Washington, "to ensure that the defendant has access to his counsel and can adequately prepare his defense".

Not all of Manafort's charges will be tried in Alexandria on July 25; he will face trial again in Washington, D.C., on September 17. Now, Manafort's team wants the trial delayed by months and moved from the Beltway to Roanoke, Va., arguing there are too many Hillary Clinton voters in Alexandria, Va., to put together an impartial jury.

The prosecutors' filing says Manafort has everything he needs to prepare for the trial, including his own phone and computer.

Prosecutors also cited taped phone calls from prison in which Manafort remarked that he was being treated like a "VIP" and had access to "all my files like I would at home". Manafort's not required to wear a prison uniform and isn't confined to a cell from 8:30 a.m.to 10 p.m., Mueller said.

Defense lawyers, in response, said the government had selected "snippets" of the conversations to support their version of events. His attorneys had told courts he was being held in "solitary confinement" and struggled to prepare for his trials with his lawyers because of the 100 miles between him and the legal team.
