Judge Appears Ready To Release Manafort From House Arrest


Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was freed from house arrest Friday, but he will be required to abide by a nightly curfew at his home in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.

Paul Manafort, former campaign chairman for U.S. President Donald Trump, departs after a bond hearing as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing Russian Federation investigation, at U.S. District Court in Washington, U.S., December 11, 2017.

How 'Feminism' Became Merriam-Webster's 2017 Word Of The Year
Feminism was first used in the modern sense in 1895, during the first wave of the political movement the word now describes. The definition of feminism has evolved since it was first entered in the English dictionary by Noah Webster in 1841.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson said Manafort will be released from home confinement but must "execute documents agreeing to forfeit four properties, including two in NY, one in Alexandria, Virginia, and his Florida home", the report states.

As part of the bail proposal, Gates requested that he be allowed to travel domestically - between his home and NY - as part of his consulting business. In Florida, Manafort will have to remain in the area with an 11 p.m. curfew and will be monitored with an electronic Global Positioning System.

National Park Service to limit fee-free days in 2018
The entry fee hike is meant to address unmet park maintenance and repairs, otherwise known as deferred maintenance. Rocky is one of 17 parks included in the proposal, which would take effect for most parks this spring.

Legal documents say Manafort has agreed to put up four residential properties believed to be worth a total of $10 million as collateral to secure his release. If the properties do not raise $10 million, Manafort's wife and daughter have deposited $7 million in separate accounts to make up for any difference, Reuters reports. He'll also have to stay away from airports, train stations, and other "transportation facilities" except for approved travel, per Jackson's order.

Manafort faces criminal charges of fraud, conspiracy and money laundering.

Low mortgage rates not impressing potential new home buyers
One of the problems is that once rates reach rock bottom (which is pretty well where they are right now) the only way is up. This could be a good time for more young Americans to take out a Roth Individual Retirement Account or IRA for short.

He faces charges of money laundering, tax evasion and failing to disclose foreign lobbying as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe. In Friday's order, the judge said he would need to get her permission to go beyond Palm Beach County and Broward County in Florida unless it was for a court appearance in Washington. He has pleaded not guilty. US intelligence officials said in a report unclassified in January that Moscow directed hacking efforts to help Donald Trump win, and the Mueller probe is also looking into whether the Trump campaign helped out.
