Paul Manafort Seeks Expanded Release, Offers Properties, Insurance as Collateral

Feinstein No evidence Trump received 'dirt' on Clinton

Former Indian American US Attorney Preet Bharara said that he believes that Paul Manafort, who served as President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman, may "flip" and provide damaging information on other political associates in exchange for a favourable plea deal.

A federal magistrate last week ordered Manafort and Gates to be placed on home confinement.

But the lawyers said they had not made final arrangements yet, and U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson declined to take them off home detention until additional details about their personal wealth are disclosed, along with a more specific commitment to forfeit millions of dollars in assets if they fail to show up for future court dates.

Jackson's original intention was to lift the home confinement but ordered that both men stay away from transportation facilities and continue to be tracked by a Global Positioning System monitor, she said, but said she will "keep an open mind".

Manafort and former Trump campaign official Rick Gates surrendered Monday to Justice Department authorities following a 12-count indictment that includes charges of conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money and unregistered agent of a foreign principal.

Kevin Spacey was developing 'House of Cards'-themed clothing and other merchandise
Netflix has fired Kevin Spacey from " House of Cards " after sexual harassment allegations against the actor. Spacey's publicist also cut ties with him this week, according to Reuters .

The indictment charges Manafort and Gates with conspiracy to defraud the USA, money laundering and violations of lobbying laws in connection with Manafort's lobbying work for pro-Russian party in Ukraine. They have pleaded not guilty.

The judge asked why prosecutors appeared willing to "forgo" Global Positioning System monitoring for Manafort and Gates, who Mueller's office have argued should be considered flight risks.

The judge also has considered issuing a gag order in the case, but that topic was not addressed at Monday's hearing.

"Though prosecutors have said Manafort had three passports with different numbers, his lawyers objected to efforts to portray him as a "'Jason Bourne' character". And Manafort ended up with three passports because he had two - with one he sent away for foreign visa applications - then lost the first and applied for a third, the lawyer said.
