Judge orders Paul Manafort moved to suburban Washington jail

The special counsel Robert Mueller's office used Paul Manafort's own words against him in a new court filing Wednesday.

In their court filing Wednesday, prosecutors sought to pick apart Manafort's arguments that he needs to delay the trial because of his jail conditions.

Manafort, who was President Trump's campaign chairman for several months, last week asked for his July 25 trial in Alexandria federal court to be delayed until this fall, saying his incarceration in Virginia's Northern Neck has made it too hard to prepare.

Government lawyers reported Manafort had over 100 phone calls with his attorneys in the past three weeks.

He found himself down 0-30 serving for the set but recovered impressively, clinching it with a 131mph service victor . An upset looked on the cards, as Edmund took the first set 6-4 in dominant fashion.

In a separate footnote, prosecutors noted that Manafort has several "VIP" privileges at the prison he's in, including a large, private unit, his own bathroom and shower, his own phone, a personal laptop, and his own workspace to prep for trial.

"When the team takes the laptop from the jail, it reconnects to the internet and Manafort's emails are transmitted", the prosecutors wrote.

This is a breaking story and will be updated.

While it is possible for Mr. Manafort to provide counsel with information he would like communicated, any communication is then sent by counsel in a manner this is consistent with the rules of the facility.

Manafort's lawyers have said they cannot properly prepare for trial with a client jailed two hours outside of Washington, D.C. In response, U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III ordered Manafort moved from his current jail to one in Alexandria, Virginia, where the federal courthouse is located, so that he can be closer to his lawyers. Mr. Manafort's attorneys have sought to push back his trial until fall, alleging his incarceration has made it hard to communicate.

Ellis, the judge in the Virginia case, has directed lawyers for both sides to appear on July 17, to argue about whether the case should be delayed or moved.

Ellis concluded that Manafort's ability to prepare for trial "trumps his personal comfort".

Not long after Eastern District of Virginia (EDVA) Judge T.S. Ellis III had some stern words for Paul Manafort's lawyers and ordered the defendant to be transferred to the Alexandria Detention Center, Manafort's team has chose to fight back on another front. "The dissonance between defendant's motion to continue and motion opposing transfer to the Alexandria Detention Center can not easily be explained or resolved". He instructed the U.S. Marshals Service to move Manafort to Alexandria, as he initially planned.
