Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort will face trial no sooner than September, the judge hearing his case indicated after an hour-long hearing Tuesday in which prosecutors and defense attorneys sparred over his continuing house arrest and a separate lawsuit challenging the appointment of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III.
D.C. police arrested and charged a 15-year-old in an armed carjacking early Saturday evening near the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site in Southeast Washington. The suspect, whose name was not released, was charged after two suspects allegedly brandished handguns and demanded a woman exit her vehicle in the 2300 block of High Street SE at about 5:54 p.m. Saturday, police said. The victim got out, and the suspects fled the scene in the vehicle, police said.
Prosecutor Andrew Weissmann says govt will seek to toss out Manafort's Jan. 3 civil lawsuit challenging his indictment, arguing that Manafort can ask to do so in his criminal trial. Manafort atty Kevin Downing seemed to forget his suit asked for that, before judge reminded him.
"While he is subject to home confinement, he is not confined to his couch," Judge Amy Berman Jackson noted sharply of Manafort, who had asked for a temporary, health-related modification of his detention. "He has plenty of opportunities to exercise." http://wapo.st/2DhYF3p
While Manafort business partner/co-defendant Rick Gates is set to be released on nearly $5M bond later Tuesday, Manafort's attorney complained judge mistakenly set his bond at $17M, sted $7M, triggering some sharp words.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
