A federal judge revokedPaul Manafort's bail on Friday, sending the former Trump campaign chair to jail ahead of his two trials on fraud charges. Prosecutors with the special counsel last week had asked Judge Amy Berman Jackson to revise Manafort's bail conditions after Mueller presented evidence that Manafort had contacted and, they allege, tampered with potential witnesses.
"Paul Manafort, 69 years old, today is the first day of the rest of his life", he said.
"The danger is that Mr. Manafort will continue to commit crimes", prosecutor Greg Andrestold the judge. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges against him, which also include obstruction of justice.
He had been confined to that Alexandria, Virginia home since his arrest, and was forced to wear a Global Positioning System monitoring device.
His trial in Alexandria, the U.S. state of Virginia, on bank fraud charges is set in July, and a separate one in Washington, DC, for him on charges of money laundering and fraud conspiracy is scheduled for September.
Manafort will now have to prepare for two federal trials, one in Washington on September 17 and the other in Virginia on July 25, while locked up in a jail cell. The charges do not relate to his work on the Trump campaign or involve allegations of Russian election interference.
Manafort turned around briefly to wave to his wife before heading out a door at the back of the crowded courtroom, witnesses said.
Berman Jackson ruled Friday that Manafort will have to go to jail until his trial for alleged money laundering and acting as an unregistered foreign agent related to work he did for the Ukrainian government.
