Prosecutors: Manafort says he's treated like 'VIP' in jail

Prosecutors: Manafort says he's treated like 'VIP' in jail

U.S. President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, has said in monitored jail phone calls that he's being treated like a "VIP" while behind bars. They said they gained access to another prison call on June 20 in which Manafort told a listener skeptical about delaying the Virginia case and bringing forward a separate trial in Washington, D.C.

But in the Wednesday filing, special counsel Robert MuellerRobert Swan MuellerSasse: US should applaud choice of Mueller to lead Russian Federation probe MORE argued that Manafort's claims do not hold up because Manafort has said in multiple prison calls that he has had full access to his files and attorneys.

But the new filing reveals a jailhouse phone call recording where Manafort boasts about the special privileges he enjoys as he waits for his scheduled trial to start July 25.

Shark bites University of Miami student in Bahamas
An Instagram model has been bitten by a shark whilst trying to get a picture with them, floating in a marina. Zarutskie knows it could have been worse. "I've been on so many different medications", she told WSVN-Ch.

"Manafort has spoken to his attorneys every day, and often, multiple times a day", the government observed.

Furthermore, prosecutors said Mr. Manafort has his own bathroom and shower, a self-contained living unit - instead of a cell - that is larger than other inmates' space and he is not required to wear a prison uniform.

As more details have been revealed about the cushy set-up Paul Manafort has in his current jail, a federal judge doubled down on his order that Manafort be moved to a new detention center - an order Manafort unsuccessfully asked the judge to reverse even though he had complained about the location of the rural Virginia jail now holding him. Prior to being moved into his own private living space, Manafort reportedly lived in a "VIP cell" once occupied by former National Football League player Michael Vick.

Kevin Anderson ousts eight-time champion Roger Federer from Wimbledon
On a related note, Roger Federer is slated to play his Wimbledon quarter-final against South-African Kevin Anderson on Wednesday. This was Federer's earliest departure from Wimbledon since his shock second round defeat against Sergiy Stakhovsky in 2013.

And in December 2017, Judge Amy Berman Jackson allowed him to temporarily leave house arrest to spend Christmas with his extended family in the Hamptons.

On Tuesday, District Judge T.S. Ellis III, who is overseeing Mr. Manafort's Virginia trial moved him to an Alexandria jail so he can have easier access to his legal team. "When the team takes the laptop from the jail, it reconnects to the internet and Manafort's emails are transmitted", the filing stated.

The Northern Neck Regional Jail is about 100 miles from Washington, and Manafort lawyers wrote in a filing last week that the two-hour trip and restrictions on electronic or telephone communications "has made meetings.to prepare his defense far more infrequent and enormously time-consuming".
