Judge slams 'unusual' aim to defer Manafort's sentencing until he's done cooperating with Mueller


CNBC—Judge T.S. Ellis, whose district court in Alexandria, Va., bears a plaque above the entrance doors declaring "Justice Delayed is Justice Denied," threw cold water on the prosecutors' apparent scheduling preferences.

Federal Judge Ellis demands sentencing date for Manafort, calls Mueller deal ‘highly unusual’. The federal judge who oversaw the fraud trial of Paul Manafort this summer is moving ahead with plans to sentence the former Trump campaign chairman, complicating Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s deal to have Manafort finish cooperating with his team first.
