Manafort says he’s being treated like a 'VIP' in jail: Court filing

Manafort served Trump's campaign for almost five months, joining in March 2016 and climbing to be campaign chairman before stepping down in August 2016 after reports of his connections to pro-Russian forces in Ukraine.
Over the course of Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's case in Virginia federal court, Eastern District of Virginia (EDVA) Judge T.S. Ellis III has been an equal opportunity verbal smackdown deliverer. The prosecution argues Manafort's lawyers selected conversations "to support its version of events", but in actuality Manafort has had "unlimited resources" to prepare for the upcoming trial. Manafort might be aware of this, so no wonder he's not looking particularly cheery about his current situation. In other words, he had decided he wanted to stay in Northern Neck, where, the special counsel pointed out, Manafort had said he was being treated like a "VIP."
Though Manafort's lawyers have said he spends almost all of his days in solitary confinement, prosecutors described his living arrangements as a "private, self-contained living unit, which is larger than other inmates' units" with its own bathroom and shower.
Officials confirm the former Trump campaign chairman was booked Thursday morning into the Alexandria Detention Center, a complex of low-slung brick buildings just off the Capital Beltway and a few blocks from the federal courthouse where he will be tried later this month on bank and tax fraud charges. Mr. Manafort's attorneys have sought to push back his trial until fall, alleging his incarceration has made it hard to communicate. One trial is set for July 25 in Alexandria, Virginia, and the second case in Washington, D.C., has a September 17 trial date.

In a court document filed on Wednesday, prosecutors said Manafort enjoyed a larger-than-average cell at the Warsaw facility, including "his own bathroom and shower facility, his own personal telephone and his own workspace to prepare for trial". Mueller's office is calling shenanigans.
Manafort was sent to jail June 15 as a judge agreed there was no way to restrain the lobbyist from alleged witness tampering if he remained on the outside. His attorneys had told courts he was being held in "solitary confinement" and struggled to prepare for his trials with his lawyers because of the 100 miles between him and the legal team.
The evidence would be used to show that Manafort had knowledge about the disclosure rules under FARA and that it was not a simple mistake that he did not register for his work for pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine.
