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

Ellis in his opinion posted Wednesday said the warrant special counsel Robert Mueller's investigators obtained "satisfied the Fourth Amendment's particularity and breadth requirements, and as such, suppression of the evidence recovered from the search of defendant's residence is not warranted".

The documents were filed by federal prosecutors opposing Mr. Manafort's request to delay his Virginia trial for months.

Manafort, who was President Trump's campaign chairman for several months, last week asked for his July 25 trial in Alexandria federal court to be delayed until this fall, saying his incarceration in Virginia's Northern Neck has made it too hard to prepare. Visitor and phone logs also indicate that Manafort meets with his legal team multiple times a week, has had over 100 phone calls with them since being incarcerated, and another 200 calls with other individuals, the filing said.

Prosecutors says he is being held in a private living unit larger than where other inmates stay that has its own bathroom, shower, telephone and workspace, and he has a laptop with an extension cord he can use daily in his room at Northern Neck Regional Jail in Warsaw, Virginia. "Manafort is also not required to wear a prison uniform".

The special counsel's lawyers reported that the jail in Warsaw doesn't allow prisoners to send emails but that Manafort "appears to have developed a workaround" by reading and drafting messages on a second laptop that's brought in and out of the jail by his legal team.

This is a breaking story and will be updated. Manafort is incarcerated in Virginia, and he recently asked the court to push back the latter trial date, arguing that the circumstances of his incarceration mean he won't be ready for the trial in time. Mr. Manafort's attorneys have sought to push back his trial until fall, alleging his incarceration has made it hard to communicate. The judge added that Manafort's "access to counsel and his ability to prepare for trial trumps his personal comfort".

The move addresses Manafort's complaint that his lawyers were too far away, making it "effectively impossible" to prepare for the trial in federal court in Alexandria on charges of bank fraud and tax crimes.

Manafort has been jailed since last month after a judge revoked his house arrest.

"It is surprising and confusing when counsel identifies a problem and then opposes the most logical solution to that problem", Ellis wrote.
