Manafort Sent Immediately to Jail After House Arrest Canceled by Judge

Federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson revoked former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort's house arrest on Friday and sent him to jail following accusations of witness tampering.


He will remain incarcerated awaiting trial for foreign lobbying violations. Manafort's D.C. trial is scheduled to begin in September.

CNN reports that three U.S. marshals "led Manafort out of the courtroom into the prisoner holding area immediately after the judge's ruling."
