Update: Paul Manafort is heading to jail, ahead of his trials for bank fraud and money laundering, Bloomberg News reports.
A judge in Washington revoked Manaforts bail Friday after being told by Special Counsel Robert Muellers lawyers that Manafort, Donald Trumps former campaign chairman, attempted to tamper with witnesses for his trial. Manafort has "abused" the trust placed in him six months ago, the judge said.
Paul Manafort could be locked up as soon as Friday if a judge agrees with Special Counsel Robert Muellers argument that he tried to tamper with witnesses while under house arrest.
Manafort, a former campaign chairman for President Donald Trump, arrived at the federal courthouse in Washington just before 9:30 a.m. He is accused of money laundering and acting as an unregistered foreign agent of Ukraine. But what could land him in jail as he awaits trial are new charges relating to witness tampering.
U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson will have the final say after considering arguments from Muellers team and Manaforts lawyers. She could also impose more stringent bail terms than Manaforts $10 million bond with electronic monitoring.
She absolutely could lock him up, said former federal prosecutor Courtney Oliva. I think hes got an uphill battle, and its likely hell get sent to jail. If hes not, its because hes not your run-of-the-mill defendant, and shes just being very careful.

Mulehead will be in prison soon.
Even though Manafort’s legal situation has nothing to do with President Trump or the 2016 campaign, the liberal media are spinning overtime to link it in the public mind.
” she’s just being very careful”
Because $10 million in property as collateral makes him a flight risk
A Barack Obama appointee, as if it isn’t obvious.
I don’t like Manafort even though I don’t know him personally, all I have read about him makes him out to be a pompous a-hole.
But this is politically motivated, and it makes me angry.

Bank fraud and money laundering,Hillary chuckles.
Yes appointed by Barry in 2011
And Hilliary walks (kinda) free.................
“Mulehead will be in prison soon.”
No he won’t. He won’t even be fired much less arrested for anything. :-)
Never happen. He's one of the "Protected Ones."
“...all I have read about him makes him out to be a pompous a-hole.”
I don’t know Manafort, either. However, I don’t believe much of anything that has been written or reported on him in the Media, either.
It seems as though anybody who has even a passing acquaintance with President Trump is reported to be someone who is lower than whale scat.
I don’t buy it.
It is all about making sure another Trump doesn’t occur.
Precisely what I was thinking! If prompt action is not taken by President Trump. i.e. fire Session, Rosenstein, Wray and ALL subordinates connected with this treasonous coup d’etat, our Republic is lost.
Remember, Manafort’s troubles stem from his association with those Clinton pilot fish, the Podestas.
Sessions apparently approves.
