Paul Manafort says he's being treated 'like a VIP' in jail
Former Trump campaign boss Paul Manafort has boasted "he is being treated like a 'VIP'" in a Virginia jail as he awaits his upcoming trials on federal criminal charges but he will be leaving that lockup after a judge rejected his request to avoid transfer to another jail, according to new court filings.

Prosecutors on special counsel Robert Mueller's team said in one of those filings that Manafort, who has been in a Warsaw, Va., jail since mid-June after being accused of trying to tamper with witnesses, has gotten "unique privileges" in that lockup.

Those fringe benefits include "a private, self-contained living unit" that is bigger than his fellow inmates' spaces, "his own bathroom and shower facility, his own personal telephone, and his own workplace to prepare for trial," prosecutors say in the filing. And he isn't required to wear a prison uniform, either, the filing said.

"Manafort also possesses a personal laptop that he is permitted to use in his unit" to review materials for his upcoming trials, according to the filing, which opposes a bid by Manafort's lawyers to delay the start of his first trial, in Alexandria, Va., until after he is tried in September in Washington, DC., on separate federal charges.

And he has even developed "a workaround" to the jail's ban on sending or receiving emails by reading and composing emails on another laptop computer that is shuttled into the jail by his defense team, which is then used to transmit the emails after it is taken out of the jail, prosecutors said.

So the fake news is pinned and this one is not.

Typical.

So now Mueller, in addition to all his dirty and illegal tricks, has hired a PR firm?
To learn who rules over you, find out who you are not allowed to criticize.

When the government is wrong, it's dangerous to be right.

The secret of freedom lies in educating people, whereas the secret of tyranny is in keeping them ignorant.
