Va Judge Approves Delay of Manafort Trial to July 31

The federal judge presiding over the bank and tax fraud trial in Virginia of former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort reportedly delayed the start of proceedings until July 31.

The trial before U.S. District Judge T. S. Ellis was was set to start Wednesday; arguments on the delay were heard Monday morning.

At the hearing, Manafort's attorney Kevin Downing said 120,000 pages of documents had been produced in recent weeks that his team needed more time to review, Bloomberg News reported.

Talking Points Memo reported Ellis agreed to the delay.

In previous court filings, Manafort had also pointed to the mid-June decision by the judge in the D.C. case, where special counsel Robert Mueller has also brought charges, to put Manafort in jail for alleged witness tampering. Manafort's attorneys argued Manafort's detention, at a rural jail some two hours away from the D.C.-metropolitan area, was impeding his trial preperation. Ellis responded to that issue by moving Manafort to a jail closer to the Alexandria courthouse — a decision Manafort unsuccessfully sought to reverse.

Manafort has pleaded not guilty to the fraud case in Virginia, and also to charges brought against him in Washington, D.C.
