Judge Amy Berman Jackson said Manafort may travel to Bridgehampton, N.Y., next week, but must provide the court with a complete itinerary that includes his flight schedule, specific dates and times and addresses where he will visit his in-laws, and the dates, times and addresses of any religious services he plans to attend.


Manafort pleaded not guilty in October to charges of tax fraud and money laundering stemming from his work as a political operative in Ukraine. The charges were some of the first announced by special counsel Robert Mueller amid his ongoing investigation into Russia's election meddling and any possibly coordination with the Trump campaign.

Manafort will be required to stay in his home at all other times, according to the court order.

Manafort must submit an itinerary by Wednesday at noon.

He was placed under house arrest and deemed a flight risk, and Jackson wrote Monday he has not yet satisfied the conditions of release from house arrest.

Jackson issued an order last week approving a $10 million bail agreement to end his house arrest, allowing him to relocate to his home in South Florida.

However, his wife must first provide records proving she has cash or other securities worth $5 million in an account where she has sole authority, and his daughter must do the same to show she has $2 million, Politico reported.
