Here’s the Paul Manafort mugshot we’ve all been waiting for

Paul Manafort President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman

Manafort served Trump's campaign for almost five months, joining in March 2016 and climbing to be campaign chairman before stepping down in August 2016 after reports of his connections to pro-Russian forces in Ukraine.

Judge T.S. Ellis gave the special counsel prosecuting Manafort until Friday to respond to those motions. Manafort might be aware of this, so no wonder he's not looking particularly cheery about his current situation.

Federal prosecutors said Wednesday as they argued against postponing his financial crimes trial that Manafort said in monitored phone calls that he was being treated like a "VIP" at the Northern Neck Regional Jail.

If you've been following along closely as we have, you would notice that Mueller picked up on Ellis' Wednesday footnote burn of Manafort and Co. and is using it to his advantage.

While the charges against Manafort center on his private work for a Russia-backed Ukranian political party, they were brought by the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election Prosecutors say he got one favorable loan only because the bank chairman wanted a job in the Trump administration.

Manafort asked the court to move his July 25 trial date in Virginia back to allow for more time to prepare, but Mueller's team insists that Manafort's complaint "does not warrant the expansive relief sought". Now, Manafort's team wants the trial delayed by months and moved from the Beltway to Roanoke, Va., arguing there are too many Hillary Clinton voters in Alexandria, Va., to put together an impartial jury.

Judge Ellis denied Manafort's bid to stay put at the jail he is now residing at and ordered him to be moved to the Alexandria Detention Center. He has his own phone and bathroom, and doesn't have to wear a prison jumpsuit. They also said Manafort has said in the calls that he is able to visit with his lawyers every day and that he has "all my files like I would at home". The Alexandria Detention Center, he pointed out is "very familiar with housing high-profile defendants including foreign and domestic terrorists, spies and traitors". His attorneys had told courts he was being held in "solitary confinement" and struggled to prepare for his trials with his lawyers because of the 100 miles between him and the legal team.

Manafort's attorneys have denied the tampering allegations and appealed his detention.
