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.

Manafort has agreed to an $11.65million bail agreement with the special counsel investigating Trump campaign ties to Russia. Special Counsel Robert Mueller is seen above in Washington on June 21

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.
