NEW: Will Manafort spend Thanksgiving in PBG?


Attorneys for Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III have agreed to allow former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort travel over the Thanksgiving holiday.

Court papers filed on Monday do not disclose where Manafort wants to spend Thanksgiving. However, his primary residence is in BallenIsles, a gated community in Palm Beach Gardens. The $1.5 million home is part of a bond deal proposed by Manafort’s attorney on Nov. 4. Manafort is currently on house arrest at his home in Virginia.

Under terms of the proposed travel request, Manafort will be tracked with a GPS monitor and will not be allowed to drink alcohol.

The charges against Manafort, which include conspiracy to launder money and false statements, are the first stemming from Mueller’s investigation of possible Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
