CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

Courthouse News reports:

Nearly seven months after his criminal indictment, former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort has yet to gather the $10 million in assets needed to ease his house arrest. But that could soon change.

On Friday U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson ordered prosecutors to say by May 25 whether a property in Renton, Washington can be posted as part of Manafort’s bond package. If so, he could finally make bail.

Manafort filed his most recent motion to modify his bail conditions under seal on May 9, saying that the filing contained sensitive and personal financial information. But a response from prosecutors on Thursday expresses no objections to the posting of the Washington state property, pending an interview with the owners.
