President Trump calls Manafort jailing unfair

Manafort entered his not-guilty plea in federal court Friday

The move marks a striking, although somewhat expected, turn in the government's long-running case against Manafort, who is facing several financial fraud charges that arose from special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential election.

"This is not middle school, I can't take his cell phone", she added, according to United States media.

President Donald Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, spent his first night in jail on Friday, where he is expected to remain until his trial.

While out on bail, prosecutors say, Manaforttried to contact a pair of former journalists who'd worked on the lobbying, asking them to characterize their work as excluding the U.S.

Manafort turned around briefly to wave to his wife in the front row before heading out a door at the back of the crowded courtroom, court witnesses said.

Now he is going to jail, giving special counsel Robert Mueller the maximum possible leverage to flip the longtime political operator against the USA president. Westling asked the judge to simply issue a more specific order for Manafort to follow while out on bail.

"This is not middle school", she said.

Manafort chaired the Trump campaign for just two months before resigning in August 2016 following a news report he had received possibly illegal payments from the political party of Ukraine's former, pro-Russian president. But Manafort's tenure at Trump campaign was short-lived. "Paul Manafort worked for me for a very short period of time".

The move dramatically ratchets up pressure on Manafort, 69, as Mueller continues to investigate whether there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. He has pleaded not guilty. Manafort had been asking to post a $10 million bond and end the seven months of home detention. The dramatic turn means that Manafort will have to prepare for two federal trials in the coming weeks - one in Washington, and one in Virginia - while confined to a jail cell. Chuck Todd and Pete Williams speculate that this could force Manafort to flip on Trump, but that's a pretty weak speculation.

"Either he can double down in his resolve to fight it or it's the last straw and it breaks his will and he decides to work out a plea bargain", Michael Zeldin, a former federal prosecutor, told Reuters.

Jackson's ruling came in response to an indictment handed up last week charging Manafort, and longtime associate Konstantin Kilimnik, with obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice, adding to the multiple felony counts he already faced.

A judge has jailed former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort after prosecutors claimed he attempted to tamper with the testimony of two potential witnesses in a criminal case he faces over a Ukraine-related lobbying campaign. "I feel a little badly about it".

US President Donald Trump speaks to reporters on the North Lawn of the White House on June 15, 2018.

Defense attorneys argued that Manafort had been ignorant about who the witnesses in his trial were.

Manafort also faces 18 separate criminate charges in a federal court in Virginia.

Mr Kilimnik, who denies having ties to Russian intelligence, was a long-serving employee of Mr Manafort's political consultancy.

On Friday, they told the judge Manafort was a "danger to the community" and that he had committed a crime while out on release: obstruction of justice.
