Mueller's team argued in its filing that an attempt by Manafort to further delay his criminal trial in Virginia by two or three months should be denied by Judge Thomas Ellis.
Also on Wednesday, Mueller's office filed a motion in the Washington case notifying the court of its intent to present evidence at trial about a Justice Department inspection into Manafort's lobbying activities in the 1980's. Instead, a judge made a decision to move Manafort into more a more traditional jail situation, though he will be kept separate from other inmates for his own safety.
On Tuesday, a federal judge ordered Manafort be moved to a closer detention facility in Alexandria, Virginia. In the meantime, he said Manafort would be moved from the Northern Neck to the jail in Alexandria, in suburban Washington, "to ensure that the defendant has access to his counsel and can adequately prepare his defense".
Manafort asked to delay the trial in Alexandria, Virginia, until after he's been tried in Washington where he's accused of failing to register in the U.S.as an agent of Ukraine and of laundering millions of dollars.

Manafort's legal team shot back in their own filing Wednesday, calling prosecutors' characterization of Manafort's living conditions as "self-serving and inaccurate".
In phone calls reviewed by Mueller, Manafort has told unidentified associates that he's finished going through discovery; meets regularly with his legal team; and has access to all his files, "like I would at home". Here the judge will also consider a request to have the trial moved to another city - Manafort argues he can not get a fair trial in Alexandria due to the publicity of his case. His lawyers had cited concerns about his safety in trying to block the transfer, but U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III didn't buy it. Manafort was heard on a monitored prison phone call saying he was being treated "like a VIP," the filing adds; calls not with his attorneys are subject to monitoring.
Manafort stayed in a larger private chambers that included his own bathroom, shower and workspace, and he could use a phone and laptop with an extension cord.
Paul Manafort's lawyers are concerned about where their client is being held as he awaits trial.
