Paul Manafort Asks to Move Upcoming Trial from D.C. to Roanoke -- Again

posted by Caroline Cook - 

Former Trump campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, is asking to move his upcoming trial out of the nation's capitol to Roanoke --- again. 

His lawyers cite "intensely negative news coverage" and possible juror bias in requesting that the case be relocated to Roanoke. 

Manafort was found guilty of eight counts last week in a separate trial in Alexandria, Virginia.  His lawyers had also asked for that trial to be held in Roanoke; however, the request was denied.
