In a new order dated Monday and released Tuesday, U.S. District Court Judge T.S. Ellis pushed back the scheduled start of Manafort's trial one day to July 25.

The move came at the request of prosecutors from special counsel Robert Mueller's office who said the earlier start date would conflict with a previously set hearing on another criminal case Manafort is facing in Washington.

Ellis originally set the Alexandria, Virginia trial for July 10 but recently postponed the trial by two weeks after he delayed a hearing on some key motions in the case

1. If it is at the request of Mueller's team (which it is), I have no issue with it.

2. Yup, and it's one day closer to November.



The more trials Mueller is prosecuting during the election run-up, the better for us.

3. I suspect he'll have his bail revoked Friday during his new arraignment...

With that in mind, this extension suits me fine.

4. Only one day isn't much.

I was afraid from your headline that it was being postponed 6 months.

One of the things I despise about our legal system is the complete lack of a sense of urgency or even timeliness in getting things resolved.

6. Still waiting

The same motion by Manafort was denied by Judge Jackson in his Wash DC trial.
