Pres. Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman has been ordered to await his trial for crimes involving foreign lobbying in a jail cell.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s revocation of Manafort’s bail and house arrest comes on the heels of special counsel Robert Mueller’s fellow prosecution team accusing him of witness tampering, leading to obstruction of justice charges.

Manafort has spent the months since his release to house arrest attempting to get his restrictions loosened.
