Special counsel Robert Muellerís office is apparently fed up with Paul Manafortís efforts to delay his upcoming trial.

Prosecutors filed a motion Wednesday opposing a continuance requested by Manafortís attorneys, one day after defense lawyers unexpectedly asked the court to keep their client at the Virginia jail where heís currently being held, reported NPR.

U.S. District Court Judge T.S. Ellis ordered defense attorneys and prosecutors to appear July 17 in court for oral arguments on delaying the trial.

President Donald Trumpís former campaign chairman is being held on witness tampering charges as he awaits trial on fraud, money laundering and other charges related to the Russia probe.

1. In this Russian/Trump/GOP/NRA attempted take-over of the U.S.,

we are really seeing how dismissive the rich are about our laws and constitution.
It could be very eye-openingóif it ever gets underway.

2. Mueller Court Doc Says Manafort Is Getting 'VIP' Treatment In Jail


Robert Mueller's team claims Paul Manafort has special privileges behind bars and plenty of access to his defense team.

By Stephanie Liebergen

The circumstances of Paul Manafort's pre-trial detention have caused a bit of court drama.

Manafort has been in jail since June 15. He's awaiting two separate trials ó one in Washington, D.C., and one in Alexandria, Virginia.

On July 6, Manafort's attorneys filed a motion to delay his Alexandria trial. They claimed they needed more time to prepare their defense, and they pointed to the location of Manafort's jail as part of the problem.

The judge responded by ordering the U.S. Marshal Service to move Manafort from a jail in Warsaw, Virginia, to one in Alexandria. But defense attorneys opposed that move, citing concerns about Manafort's safety.
