Manafort Listed as ‘VIP’ in Virginia jail

Paul Manafort, one-time head of President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, spent his first night in a federal prison in Virginia on Friday — where his location was listed as “VIP,” reports the New York Post.

Manafort is being housed at the Northern Neck Regional Jail in Warsaw, Virginia, about 90 miles south of Washington DC.

 The Northern Neck Regional Jail, where Paul Manafort will spend at least the next three months while awaiting trial, has the outward appearance of being a small local jail holding street thugs and assorted misdemeanants.

But it also houses federal prisoners awaiting trial — including a member of the Taliban and a feared Colombian drug lord. It held NFL star Michael Vick and musician Chris Brown, too.

The jail is notable for another reason — four inmates have died there since 2011. In one of those deaths, a 32-year-old female inmate who suffered a stroke in 2016 was denied medical care for more than 10 hours and was declared brain dead later that night...

 The Northern Neck jail roster indicates more than 600 inmates are currently in custody. Inmates are permitted one personal visit per week. Manafort, a former campaign chairman for President Trump, was assigned Fridays from 2:15 to 3:15 p.m. as his visitation window. Visitors may only speak to inmates through a glass partition, called “noncontact” visits, for a maximum of 30 minutes.

Inmates at Northern Neck, as at most jails, cannot receive calls, but they can make collect or prepaid calls between 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 p.m., according to jail rules. Unless the calls are to an attorney, they are recorded. 


  1. Warsaw, Virginia not Poland, right? Just want to make sure Herr Mueller didn't make an extraordinary rendition.

  2. VIP: that gets you an extra KY ration, yes?
