Additional charges have been made against Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort over the last week, both sealed and unsealed. He apparently is still in possession of his Trump Tower Apartment, because according to a document, regarding his bail, filed last week, “Trump Tower apartment, New York. Manafort claims a residual equity value of [redacted] in this property. However, the government understands from the bank holding the mortgage, UBS, [redacted]. Thus, here too there is a risk of bank foreclosure, which would undermine the property’s market value… Significantly, Manafort does not propose any sureties to make up the difference in the effective equity value of the property he proposes as security and the $10 million bond. The fact. that Manafort has not been able to find any responsible surety to cosign a bond for this package suggests that neither those closest to him, nor anyone else, is willing to assume the risk of being a surety for him. Further, the proposed package is deficient in the government’s view, in light of additional criminal conduct that we have learned since the Court’s initial bail determination. That criminal conduct includes a series of bank frauds and bank fraud conspiracies, including criminal conduct relating to the mortgage on the Fairfax property, which Manafort seeks to pledge.
