Ex-Trump Campaign Chairman Manafort In $11.65 Million Bail Deal

Paul Manafort former campaign manager for U.S. President Donald Trump arrives for a bond hearing at U.S. District Court in Washington U.S

Paul Manafort, President Trump's former campaign manager, may soon gain some freedom to travel as he awaits trial in federal court.

Now, that house arrest could come to an end after defense attorneys presented "an agreed-upon bail package" with Mueller's team in court filings on Thursday, Politico reported.

According to court papers filed on Thursday, special counsel Robert Mueller's team has agreed that if Manafort posts the four properties - two in NY, one in Florida, and one in Virginia - it would be enough to ensure he doesn't flee the country or otherwise violate bail conditions.

"Counsel for Mr. Manafort and the Office of Special Counsel have conferred, and the parties agree that the conditions of release set forth below will reasonably assure the appearance of Mr. Manafort as required", they wrote.

Manafort would have to forfeit all four properties if he violates the terms of his bail. He can also travel to and from Washington, D.C. where proceedings are scheduled.

In court filings, Manafort's lawyers said he had agreed not to travel internationally, or to leave Florida, New York, Virginia and Washington without permission from the court.

The bail agreement will allow Manafort to travel within the U.S. "to other jurisdictions (e.g., for a potential business meeting). only upon application to and approval by the Court".

Prosecutors had said the scope of Manafort's wealth was unknown to the government, apparently seeking to pry out more information through the bail process. Together, the four homes have a total net assessed value (deducting outstanding mortgages and other obligations) of $11.7 million, according to court documents.

The deal also requires Manafort's wife, Kathleen Manafort, to pay $10 million if the former Trump aide were to flee. The agreement, which still needs a judge's approval, would also allow Manafort to shed a Global Positioning System tracking device. Jackson has said she was concerned that both men posed a flight risk because their extensive overseas connections.
