Paul Manafort Says He'll Put Up Four Properties Worth $11.65 Million So He Can Leave His House
Paul Manafort and Special Counsel Robert Mueller have struck a deal for Manafort's bail that would see President Trump's former campaign manager put two of his NY properties up as collateral, according to court documents filed by Manafort's attorneys Thursday. "The OSC has agreed that the properties posted provide the reasonable assurance required under the Bail Reform Act", Mueller's attorneys wrote.
Manafort would have to forfeit all four properties if he violates the terms of his bail.
He could travel to Florida, New York, Virginia and Washington, D.C., but would need prior court approval to travel elsewhere inside the United States.
The bail agreement will allow Manafort to travel within the USA "to other jurisdictions (e.g., for a potential business meeting). only upon application to and approval by the Court". Heretofore, Manafort has only been allowed to leave his Virginia home to appear in court, confer with counsel, attend religious services, or obtain medical care.

Ron Reynolds held a press conference at the Fort Bend County Justice Center to discuss the unfair actions taken against Fonseca. The Facebook post was no longer visible Thursday morning after it was removed or the privacy settings were changed.
Prosecutors had said the scope of Manafort's wealth was unknown to the government, apparently seeking to pry out more information through the bail process.
Meanwhile, Manafort's defense rebutted prosecutors' assertions that he poses a risk of flight based on his ownership of three passports, and on the registration in May of a phone and email account under an alias that Manafort used to travel to Ecuador, China and Mexico.
The revelations come one day after CNN reported Mueller chose to delay grand jury testimony from an associate of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn in a sign Flynn may have struck a plea bargain with Mueller's office.
Mueller's prosecutorial team previously asked that Manafort's bail be set at $10 million to ensure that he would show for trial, which is set to take place sometime next year. The agreement, which still needs a judge's approval, would also allow Manafort to shed a Global Positioning System tracking device.
