Newly released court documents explain that President Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort is being kept in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day ahead of his July 25 trial, citing that his safety cannot be guaranteed otherwise while in prison.
The big picture: Manafort's bail was revoked by a judge, and his legal team is currently appealing that decision arguing that being imprisoned in such a manner at a facility two hours away from his legal team is hampering his ability to defend himself. Manafort has been indicted on charges including money laundering and bank fraud.

Why? Isn’t that cruel and unusual punishment?
Gee, where are the pols and legal professions on the treatment and railroading of this guy?
And the “ethics” of the prosecutors and judge?
In prison, but not convicted of anything.
I would rather be alone-——provided I had lots of reading material.
Sounds like BS to me. Why would his safety be at risk?
They don’t do permanent solitary confinement even to murderers.
This is some form of torture, and the President should stop it.
Most murderers are treated better by our “justice” system.
What they are doing to Manafort is CRIMINAL!
Before he was relocated, he was accused of repeatedly contacting potential witnesses in an effort to sway their testimonies.
Something of the sort - one of Mueller's team raced over to the judge with an accusation (also never tried) which was excuse enough. It will have been four months by the time Manafort's second trial begins. Four months in solitary confinement without a trial. And all the little SJW's are squealing with delight.
Same as Death Row.......................
Paging the ACLU.....
Paging Kim Kardashian...
were are the conservative judges over ruling this..............this is evil and wrong. Wicked people who did real crimes are not treated like this #FreeManafort
We’re well into Kafka territory. Obviously Obergruppenfuhrer Mueller has unlimited power.
Another reason to hate Sessions!
It’s how everyone would be treated if the Dems take control
Paul Manafort, the world’s only illegal human being.
In solitary confinement having been convicted of no crime simply because he worked for trump for 3 months.
Mueller needs to be in that cell for the rest of his life.
When Manafort sues he’ll be Soooo Rich
No no - see its ok coz hes a Nazi...
