One of the players indicted in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe will not be allowed to violate his home confinement to celebrate the New Year.

Rick Gates, a former business associate of President Donald Trump's ex-campaign chairman Paul Manafort, was indicted with Manafort in October as part of the Department of Justice's Russia investigation. His lawyers submitted a request to U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson on Thursday, asking if he could leave his home and attend a New Year's Eve party.

According to the Washington Examiner, Jackson turned down the request.

"On December 28, 2017, defendant Gates filed yet another motion, with a new plan for New Year's celebrations. But the Court's original order was designed to ensure that any requests would be filed at a time when they could be reviewed and processed in accordance with all of the arcane procedures involved in the docketing and transmittal of sealed orders, which cannot be handled electronically," Jackson wrote. "Given the untimely filing of the current motion, it will be denied."

Gates and Manafort were indicted in October on multiple federal counts, including tax fraud and money laundering charges.

The pair was allowed to travel to visit family on Thanksgiving. Manafort was given the green light to travel to the Hamptons for Christmas.
