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.

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 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.
