Original Message Paul Manafort ghost-wrote an editorial about his political work in Ukraine, violating a court order, according to a new court filing from the special counselís office.

The allegation was disclosed Monday as the reason the special counsel was backing out of a deal on bail with Manafortís lawyers. The deal would have loosened the terms of house arrest for President Trumpís former campaign manager.

Manafort wanted to be allowed to travel among a few states in return for agreeing to forfeit $11.6 million in property if he missed a court appearance.

The special counselís office, which is investigating whether anyone in Trumpís orbit helped Russia interfere in last yearís presidential campaign, said Manafort helped draft the editorial in recent days, working with a Russian who has ties to that countryís intelligence services.

That writing violated a Nov. 8 court order "prohibiting such out-of-court statements in order to protect the fairness of the upcoming trial,Ē the court filing said.
