Mueller just abruptly reversed course on his bail agreement with Manafort

Manafort failed to tell the government that he was ghost-writing a draft op-ed about his work with Ukraine as late as November 30, Mueller’s team said.

Manafort evidently failed to tell the government that he was ghost-writing a draft op-ed about his work in Ukraine as late as November 30.

A spokesman for Manafort declined to comment.

The government said that the court had initially “admonished” Manafort’s lawyer for making public statements to the press about the case and on November 8 had barred both “the parties and counsel from making statements that could interfere with” a fair trial. The government’s prior general consent to the bail package presupposed that Manafort was complying with the Court’s existing orders. The government asked the court in its latest filing that Manafort be required “to report to Pretrial Services where he will be located during the upcoming week, including details of any planned travel and where he will be staying.
