A federal judge has ordered former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort to jail for breaking the terms of his home incarceration.
Special prosecutor Robert Mueller recently filed new chargers against Manafort for witness tampering.
U.S. District Judge Amy Berman made the decision after prosecutors working for Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russia’s role in the 2016 presidential election, alleged that Manafort and one of his associates had tried to tamper with witnesses in the case.
Since Manafort was first indicted last October, he has remained on home confinement, required to wear an electronic-monitoring device. His trial is scheduled for September. His trial on related charges in Virginia is set for July.
This could the last day of his life that Manafort sees the outside of a prison or courtroom unless he cooperates with Mueller.
That is unless Trump pardons him, of course.
