Amy Berman Jackson Paul Manafort
In October 2017, Amy Berman Jackson was assigned to preside over the criminal case that Special Counsel Robert Mueller brought against Paul Manafort and Rick Gates as part of his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 United States presidential election.
Jackson accepted their “not guilty” pleas, granted bail, confiscated their passports, and ordered them to be held under house arrest. She also warned defense lawyers not to discuss the case outside of court.
On June 15, 2018, after the prosecution accused Manafort of attempted witness tampering, Jackson revoked his bail and sent him to jail until his upcoming federal trials to prevent him from having contact with people.
On February 23, 2018, Rick Gates pleaded guilty to one count of false statements and one count of conspiracy against the United States. The plea bargain included an agreement to cooperate Robert with the Mueller investigation.
On September 14, 2018, Paul Manafort pleaded guilty to two counts of conspiracy against the United States. The plea bargain included an agreement to cooperate with the Mueller investigation.
On February 13, 2019, Amy Berman Jackson ruled that Manafort had to lied to Mueller’s office, the FBI and a grand jury after his guilty plea about his interactions with Konstantin Kilimnik, a man the FBI believes has ties to Russian intelligence agencies. She ruled that the special counsel was no longer bound by the terms of Manafort’s plea, which included advocating a sentence reduction for him.
On March 11, 2019, Amy Berman Jackson ordered Paul Manafort to serve an additional 43 months in prison, on top of his sentence he received last week from the court in Virginia.

On February 18, Roger Stone published an Instagram post with an attack on Jackson along with a picture of her that many commentators perceived as a possible threat.
Stone later took it down and apologized, but Jackson ordered him to a February 21 court hearing at which she tightened the terms of his gag order, saying, “From this moment on, the defendant may not speak publicly about this case—period.”
