Former Trump campaign manager has been sent to jail pending trial after being accused of witness tampering.
NBC News reports: ‘”I cannot turn a blind eye to this,” Judge Amy Berman Jackson said in a Washington courtroom, explaining that she could not just release Manafort with more restrictions. “This isn’t middle school, I can’t take your phone,” Jackson said. Manafort, 69, did not appear to react to the ruling beyond a nod to his attorney. He was immediately taken into custody and walked into a hallway behind the courtroom. He gave a quick wave to his wife as he disappeared from sight.’
