WASHINGTON, June 15 (Reuters) – A federal judge on Friday sent President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, to jail pending trial, after Special Counsel Robert Mueller charged him last week with witness tampering.

It was the latest episode in the fall of Manafort, a longtime political operator and businessman who has been a focus of Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson in Washington revoked Manafort’s bail, sending him to jail.
