Manafort, Gates given 'limited' house arrest break for Thanksgiving

The two men are allowed to travel for Thanksgiving.

Today, a U.S. district court judge granted both Manafort and Gates "limited release" but sealed the portion of the proceedings that detail the specifics of their travel. Neither will be allowed to consume alcohol during their release and must wear their GPS devices throughout.

Manafort, who lives in Alexandria, Virginia, has requested that he be able to travel locally for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Gates requested the ability to travel away from home for 18 hours to family gatherings in Virginia for the Thanksgiving holiday. Eleven hours are on Thanksgiving Day, eight the day after.

Neither of the men were in the court hearing today.
