Special counsel Robert Mueller has indicted a man with direct ties to both Russian intelligence and the Trump orbit: ex-spy Konstantin Kilimnik.
Because of the witness tampering allegations, prosecutors have asked the judge in DC to send Manafort to jail while he awaits his September trial.
Manafort is now out on house arrest and a $10 million unsecured bail.
Besides the president or his family, there is perhaps no bigger fish in the Russian Federation investigation than Manafort. The former Trump campaign chair is facing several other financial crime charges related to his pre-campaign work. A witness told investigators recently that Manafort wanted them to commit perjury about a lobbying effort they worked on for him in the U.S., a filing in DC District Court said.
An Atlantic profile earlier this week portrays Kilimnik as Manafort's long-time "aide-de-camp" in Eastern Europe.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office has indicted a 20th person in its probe into Russian meddling and collusion in the 2016 presidential election.
He added: "That evidence would likely be extremely damaging to Manafort at trial-if he was innocent, why would he try to engage in witness tampering?"
Perhaps more important is that an alleged line from the Russian government to the Trump campaign could be getting clearer. Four people, including Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, have pleaded guilty.
Kilimnik, 48, has previously declined to comment on the allegations.
'They haven't been convicted of anything.
Earlier on Friday, Mr Trump denied that he was considering pardoning Mr Manafort. "This made Kilimnik the primary interface for Manafort's lone client, a corrupt clique of former gangsters that ruled Ukraine under the banner of their political organization, the Party of Regions", Foer said.
