Paul Manafort, the Palm Beach Gardens resident and former Donald Trump campaign chairman indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller last week, wants his house arrest modified to allow him to travel to Florida, Washington, D.C., Virginia and New York while he awaits trial.

Manafort has also pledged his $1.5 million home in BallenIsles Country Club as part of a $12.5 million package of real estate and life insurance policies to assure he doesn’t flee while facing charges.

Mueller’s office is expected to file a response to Manafort’s request by 5 p.m. today and a bond review hearing is set for Monday morning.
