Paul Manafort goes through security as he arrives at federal court Friday

In a brief filed Thursday, Downing wrote that Manafort is unable to adequately prepare for his two upcoming trails, the first of which starts later this month, while locked up.

"A simple Google search for articles about Russian collusion shows 2,900,000 results".

Of the articles about Manafort, they say, "one is hard pressed to find any that are not unfavorable" to him. They also argued that potential jurors in the area are more likely to be opponents of President Donald Trump and likely to associate Manafort with the President.

He faces charges related to his work for pro-Russia Ukrainian political interests.

Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort is sent to jail as questions continue about whether or not Trump should be interviewed by Mueller; reaction on 'Hannity'. The 69-year-old defendant, who served the Trump campaign from June to August 2016, has been indicted on charges of money laundering and bank fraud. "Here, it would be hard for the jury to understand why the loans were approved without understanding that the lender approved the loans, in spite of the identified deficiencies, because the senior executive factored in his own personal ambition". Last month, Manafort was accused of trying to influence witness testimony while he was under house arrest.

OLawyers for former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort said on Thursday that he is being held in solitary confinement because "the facility can not otherwise guarantee his safety", leading some conservatives online complain about the United States criminal justice system-a major talking point among Democrats. They said the judge, Amy Berman Jackson, did not analyze carefully enough whether Manafort had actually committed witness tampering.

The filing also said Manafort has not taken any action to improve his confinement conditions.
