Manafort sentencing: Trump's former campaign manager gets 73 months in prison over fraud case

Manafort sentencing: Trump's former campaign manager gets 73 months in prison over fraud caseDonald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has been sentenced to 73 months on two charges, including conspiracy against the United States and conspiracy to obstruct justice after he attempted to tamper with witnesses. Manafort’s total sentence in the two hearings he has faced in recent weeks amounts to 90 months — or seven years and six months — in prison. Manafort asked Judge Amy Berman Jackson for mercy on Wednesday, saying the criminal charges against him have “taken everything from me already.” He pleaded with the judge not to impose any additional prison time beyond the roughly four-year sentence he received in a separate case last week.

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.

Paul Manafort fraud trial: Former Trump campaign manager 'lied' and placed himself 'above law' amid lavish lifestyle, court hears

Paul Manafort fraud trial: Former Trump campaign manager 'lied' and placed himself 'above law' amid lavish lifestyle, court hearsPaul Manafort has been branded a “shrewd” liar by prosecutors as they sought to build a picture of a multimillion dollar conspiracy to evade US tax laws by Donald Trump’s former campaign manager during the first day of his criminal trial. Assistant US attorney Uzo Asonye painted a picture of Mr Manafort’s lavish lifestyle, alleging in a Virginia court that money funnelled through 30 offshore accounts was used to buy items including a $ 21,000 watch and a $ 15,000 ostrich jacket, telling the jury that Mr Manafort considered himself “above the law”. “A man in this courtroom believed the law did not apply to him – not tax law, not banking law,” Mr Asonye said as he sketched out the evidence gathered by special counsel Robert Mueller’s team in Mr Manafort’s bank fraud and tax evasion trial which relates to political consultancy work undertaken in Ukraine.
