re: #216 JordanRules
Let’s again remind the assembled why Manafort is in jail while awaiting trial in the first place:
Manafort was engaged in witness tampering and witness intimidation to try and get witnesses to change their testimony so he could avoid a life sentence on those charges (he faces 100s of years in prison if convicted on all the charges).
But for his own actions, he would have still been out on bail.
He’s in solitary for his own protection, and to avoid further attempts at witness tampering. Again, he was out on bail but lost that right when he violated the terms of his bail.
