Paul Manafort is Going to Jail

President Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, is heading to jail Friday, after a federal judge sided with the prosecution’s argument he is a “danger to the community” and rescinded bail.

Prosecutors charged Manafort with obstruction of justice, after the former political operative allegedly contacted potential witnesses to discuss the case.

Manafort will now remain in the custody of federal authorities through his trial later this summer.

Investigators have charged Manafort with crimes related to his work for former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych and alleged money laundering. He is also a continuing focus of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
