Paul Manafort sentencing: Trump's former campaign manager sentenced to less than four years in jail for fraud

Paul Manafort sentencing: Trump's former campaign manager sentenced to less than four years in jail for fraudPaul Manafort, Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, has been sentenced by a judge to 47 months in jail – considerably less than prosecutors had sought for the 69-year-old known for wearing $ 10,000 suits. In what came as nothing less than a jolt to observers – prosecutors had requested he be jailed for up to 25 years – the man who served as Mr Trump’s campaign chief for a short but crucial few months, appeared to have been successful in his appeal to the federal judge TS Ellis to show mercy. There was no immediate reaction from either special counsel Robert Mueller or the president.
