Donald Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort has had his bail revoked by a Washington DC judge and has been ordered to jail pending trial.

Manafort was not sentenced, but was sent to jail for violating the terms of his bail. He had been confined to his home on electronic monitoring and other restrictions since he was first indicted October 27 during special counsel Robert Mueller III's probe of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Manafort was confined to house arrest and posted a $10 million bond.

Kilimnik, had contacted the two witnesses this year, hoping to persuade them to testify that Mr. Manafort had never lobbied in the United States for Viktor F. Yanukovych, the pro-Moscow president of Ukraine who fled to Russian Federation in 2014 after a popular uprising.

Manafort's trial is now scheduled for September.

Mr Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, was even more direct, telling a NY newspaper that the Manafort situation could eventually get "cleaned up" by presidential pardons.

Who was Manafort accused of contacting? "You add on top of that tampering with witnesses and any judge is going to throw the book at him".

"We learned about it because a witness in this case brought forward information about the tampering". One of the February 2018 conversations cited by prosecutors between Manafort and a person identified as "Person D1" lasted a minute and 24 seconds. "At the least, he has shown he is adept" at making them. The judge responded that Westling was "somewhat understating what we have".
