ALEXANDRIA, VA. - A federal judge in Alexandria ordered Paul Manafort to be moved to the Alexandria jail ahead of his July 25 trial.

Manafort, the former campaign manager for President Trump, has been jailed at Northern Neck Regional Jail since a judge denied bail. Judge T.S. Ellis said the move will "ensure that the defendant has access to his counsel and can adequately prepare his defense," The Washington Post reported.

But Attorneys for Manafort say moving to the Alexandria jail would present difficulty before the trial.
