Mr Manafort was accused of contacting people related to his case in breach of his bail terms. "I have no appetite for this".

Until the judge's order, Manafort had been under house arrest and had been trying to get his house arrest restrictions lightened.

Most of the charges against Manafort relate to his work for Russian-friendly politicians in Ukraine. That didn't convince Berman, who apparently found the allegations credible enough to revoke Manafort's bail.

Minutes later, a marshal returned to give his wife, Kathleen, still standing in the courtroom's front row, Manafort's wallet, belt and the burgundy tie he wore Friday. That case is set to go to trial earlier than the DC case, with a late July start date.

Gates is awaiting sentencing, as is Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, who pled guilty to charges of lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

President Donald Trump is weighing in on a judge's decision to jail his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort while he awaits trial. She explained that she needed to keep him from contacting others. "This isn't middle school, I can't take your phone".

Trump referred to a "tough sentence" - as if Manafort already had been convicted.

Manafort's business partner Konstantin Kilimnik was also indicted.

Riva Levinson was hired by Manafort in the 1980s, becoming, she says, his "Third World traveler of choice". "But I tell you, I feel a little badly about it". That was my role.

The filings last week, signed by Mueller, alleged that Manafort and Kilimnik "knowingly and intentionally attempted to corruptly persuade another person...with intent to influence, delay, and prevent the testimony of any person in an official proceeding". Actually, their work was being coordinated by Manafort and underwritten by the Ukrainian government. And of all the Trump campaign officials, Manafort has the most known personal and business connections to Russian Federation. He helped Gerald Ford secure the 1976 nomination and later worked for Ronald Reagan.

Manafort resigned in August 2016 following a news report he had received possibly illegal payments from the political party of Ukraine's former, pro-Russian president.

Trump's tweet also comes after he's issued a series of high-profile pardons, some for prosecutions he's claimed were "unfair". His tenure as chairman saw Trump become the GOP nominee for president.

Remind me again, why is Manafort on trial?

"And he taught me how to not get distracted from the clutter". He was leading Trump's campaign as Russian meddling was ramping up.
