Paul Manafort to Be Released From House Arrest
Friday, a U.S. District Court judge announced that she would be releasing Trump’s former campaign manager, Paul Manafort from house arrest so long as he met a handful of conditions.
Paul Manafort paid his $10 million bail, but that comes with a number of strings attached that restrict the former political consultant.
In the order, Judge Amy Berman Jackson stated that Manafort, who currently is facing charges related to money laundering and failing to register as a foreign agent, would still be subject to a curfew and will be required to wear an electronic GPS monitoring device, among other restrictions, according to a Reuters report.
All of Manafort’s charges are not in relation to the Trump campaign or the President and have to do with overseas work Manafort did for an eastern European political party.
Manafort is thought to be “overcharged” and has also been treated extremely unfairly. At one point, his home was raided by FBI agents with their guns drawn and Manafort’s wife was even manhandled by the aggressive agents serving Mueller’s nefarious goals of taking down Trump for the Swamp.

Rowan Scarborough for the Washington Times reported of the FBI raid on Manafort’s home:
A source familiar with the case told The Washington Times the search was even more intrusive: An agent patted down Mrs. Manafort before she was allowed to get out of bed.
“Agents felt up Mrs. Manafort lying in bed to see if she had guns,” the source said of the intimidation.
In all, 12 FBI agents entered the home, guns drawn, and stayed for hours.
