Manafort moved to Alexandria jail

Source: Politico


By JOSH GERSTEIN 07/12/2018 11:45 AM EDT

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was moved Thursday to a jail in Alexandria, Virginia, just outside Washington, to await a criminal trial set to open later this month, a jail spokeswoman confirmed.

U.S. District Court Judge T.S. Ellis III, who is set to oversee the upcoming trial, issued an order earlier this week requiring that Manafort be transferred to the Alexandria facility from the Northern Neck Regional Jail about a two-hour drive south of Washington.

Online records from the Northern Neck jail show Manafort was checked out of that detention center at 12:32 a.m. Thursday.

Ellis' order followed complaints from Manafort's attorneys that the circumstances of his detention were interfering with his ability to prepare for the Alexandria trial set to begin July 25 and another trial set to open Sept. 17 in Washington.

1. We'll keep the light on.

I've known at least one previous occupant, probably two.

Seriously, the sheriff has seen all kinds come through that facility. Ellis was not wrong in his assertion that the ADC can easily take care of Manafort.

Full disclosure: I have in front of me right this minute a long-sleeve t-shirt from the Children's Hospice International "10K Run For The Children." The first listed sponsor (main sponsor?) is the firm of Black, Manafort, Stone & Kelly.

Because he is a high-profile inmate, Mr. Manafort will be placed in protective custody which limits his interactions with other inmates, the Sheriff said.

2. Love it! No more private VIP cell with email and phone!

Careful what you ask for Manefort. Judges hated getting lied to.

8. Ha! You know his lawyers thought their argument would get him OUT of jail

Not moved to a closer jail. I think they really pissed off the judge. And I hope he stops that business with the extra laptop sending emails, too.

10. Paul's get-out-of-jail ploy sure backfired. And I bet the email scheme is squashed, too.
