The subpoenas would require their recipients to testify in the U.S. District Court in Alexandria on July 25, when Manafort's trial in Virginia is set to begin.
Judge T.S. Ellis, who is overseeing the Alexandria case, ordered a hearing for Tuesday to weigh motions by Manafort to move the first trial to a more Trump-friendly area of Virginia and to postpone it until after the Washington trial was done. Despite saying in monitored phone calls that he is being treated like a "VIP" while behind bars, Manafort's lawyers have argued that they can not properly prepare for a trial scheduled to start this month with a client jailed two hours outside of Washington, D.C.
Hoping to delay his trial in Virginia on charges of bank fraud and money laundering, Paul Manafort instead managed this week to get himself transferred from a jail where prosecutors said he described his treatment as "VIP" to one where his lawyers claim he is anxious about his safety.
Prosecutors said in a court filing Wednesday that Manafort has told people he is being treated like a "VIP" in the Northern Neck lockup, where he has his own phone and computer, writes emails and does not have to wear a uniform.
Manafort lawyer Jay Nanavati responded with his own court filing late Wednesday.

They're also anxious about his potential embrace of Russia's Vladimir Putin during a summit in Helsinki. He says , "I think Putin may be the easiest of them all". "As far as I'm concerned, a competitor".
The prosecutors' descriptions of his jail conditions imply that Manafort has had a far easier living situation than other inmates.
"Manafort should not be permitted to obtain a two- or three-month continuance based on circumstances he has never challenged or sought relief from, in spite of repeated invitations to do so", prosecutors wrote.
Manafort had been typing emails on his attorneys' laptop that the lawyers would send once they were outside the jail, according to a government court filing this week. 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. The "Defendant's access to counsel and his ability to prepare for trial trumps his personal comfort", noted Ellis.
In a rebuttal, Manafort's lawyers said the effort put into monitoring their client's phone calls showed that Mueller had "unlimited resources" and accused his office of choosing conversations "to support its version of events".
The jail houses about 400 inmates, and at least 150 beds are reserved for federal prisoners like Manafort.

Manafort also asked to have his Virginia trial delayed on the grounds that he needed more time to review the many documents in the case, which centers on his work for a Russia-aligned political party in Ukraine. "When the team takes the laptop from the jail, it reconnects to the internet and Manafort's emails are transmitted", the prosecutors said. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
The special counsel said Manafort's actions violated federal law, and therefore violated the terms of his pretrial release.
"The five previously charged counts against Manfort remain unchanged: conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false and misleading FARA [Foreign Agents Registration Act] statements, and false statements", the special counsel's spokesman said last month.
Hull said that when jail officials learned Manafort was communicating by email, his attorneys were told to stop the practice.
Manafort's attorneys have denied the tampering allegations and appealed his detention.
