Manafort Asks Judge To Move Virginia Trial From DC Suburb To Roanoke

  • Paul Manafort goes through security as he arrives at federal court Friday

Manafort, President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman, has been held in Virginia's Northern Neck Regional Jail since June 15, when a federal judge revoked his bail after learning that he and an associate, the former Russian intelligence operative Konstantin Kilimnik, tried to tamper with witness testimony in the investigation.

Manafort is one of four Trump campaign or White House aides to have been charged in Mueller's investigation.

On Friday, Manafort asked to change the trial location to Roanoke, Virginia, claiming the jury would carry less bias against President Trump.

A filing in federal court states that "the degree to which the public has followed (coverage of Manafort), has been most intense in and around Washington, D.C".

Sharan and Sitak eked out a 7-6 (4) 6-7 (8) 6-3 6-2 win in two hours and 41 minutes to book a second round berth. Not because of time violation. "Hopefully it's nothing that will concern me", said Djokovic.

Manafort's trial is scheduled to start in Virginia later this month and he faces a number of charges including fraud, tax evasion, money laundering, and conspiracy.

Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort is sent to jail as questions continue about whether or not Trump should be interviewed by Mueller; reaction on 'Hannity'. "Here, it would be hard for the jury to understand why the loans were approved without understanding that the lender approved the loans, in spite of the identified deficiencies, because the senior executive factored in his own personal ambition".

Defense lawyers said in court papers Thursday that Manafort is locked in a jail cell in Virginia for 23 hours a day, excluding visits from his attorneys, and has been in solitary confinement because the facility can't guarantee his safety.

His lawyers told Jackson that the evidence of witness tampering was thin, and complained that Mueller's office had ignored another federal judge's order to turn over a complete list of potential witnesses.
