Judge denies Manafort's request to move trial
A federal judge rejected former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort's request to relocate his bank-fraud trial from Alexandria, Virginia to Roanoke, Virginia, reports Politico.
Why it matters: Judge T.S. Ellis III ruled that the scrutiny and attention in Manafort's case has not "disrupted the judicial serenity and calm" he is entitled to.
