Manafort Says He Can’t Prepare for Trial Because of Jail

Paul Manafort said he can’t be ready for a July 25 trial in Alexandria, Virginia, on bank fraud and tax charges because the judge in his separate money-laundering case in Washington put him in a jail two hours away from his lawyers’ offices.

Manafort, President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, late Friday asked the judge in Virginia to delay the trial until after he’s been tried in Washington where he’s accused of failing to register in the U.S. as an agent of Ukraine and of laundering millions of dollars. That trial is scheduled to start Sept. 17.
