President Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort requests to postpone and move his criminal trial farther away from Washington D.C.
On Friday, Manafort asked to change the trial location to Roanoke, Virginia, claiming the jury would carry less bias against President Trump.
His lawyers also claim a deferment is needed to compensate for time lost during his detention.
This comes after Manafort was indicted on multiple fraud and conspiracy charges by Special Counsel Robert Mueller in 2017.
