Manafort sentenced to 3 more years in prison

Article Image Update Paul Manafort Sentenced to 3.5 More Years Hit with 16 More Charges

That punishment is on top of a roughly four-year sentence he received last week in a separate case in Virginia. They have noted that the crimes sending him to prison stem from his lobbying work, not his time with Trump's campaign.

U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson sentenced Manafort to almost three-and-a-half years in prison on charges that he misled the U.S. government about his foreign lobbying work and encouraged witnesses to lie on his behalf.

President Donald Trump is falsely asserting that the latest trial of his former campaign chairman proved there was no collusion with Russian Federation.

"It's not something that's right now in my mind".

According to the indictment, Manafort asked "Individual 6" while in New York County to sign a letter stating: 'Thank you for allowing me to use the AMEX Business Plum card to purchase season tickets for the 2016 baseball season'.

Jackson told Manafort that he had lied repeatedly and committed fraud repeatedly, and there was no good explanation for the leniency he sought.

"I know it was my conduct that brought me here today". Nonetheless, her sentence on Wednesday could have been harsher: Manafort was facing the possibility of another ten years in prison as opposed to another 43 months.

Manafort's 16-count indictment includes multiple unique charges that he was not charged for during his federal trial in NY. Trump's answer was a little bit different from what he's said before.

Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort ...

Jackson suggested that argument was aimed at winning a pardon from Trump. She said much of the information he provided to prosecutors after pleading guilty couldn't be used because of his history of deceit.

Michigan Basketball: Five Wolverines Earn Big Ten Honors
The Wolverines (26-5, 15-5) will be seeded third in Chicago after falling to third place behind their rivals and No. 11 Purdue . Second chance opportunities kept Michigan State in the game in the first half and they helped put Michigan away in the second.

The sentencing hearing was a milestone in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation in the 2016 election campaign.

The charges unsealed in NY on Wednesday spelled more legal trouble for Manafort.

If convicted of the state charges - which include three counts of residential mortgage fraud, eight counts of falsifying business records, and counts of conspiracy and fraud - Manafort would not be able to receive a pardon from Trump.

However key elements of the alleged fraud came up at Manafort's trial in the Eastern District of Virginia. Again, the case did not turn on his leadership of Trump's campaign. That's twice in two cases that Trump claimed vindication that did not occur.

"I am sorry for what I have done and all the activities that have gotten us here today", Manafort said in a steady voice.

"This case has taken everything from me already - my properties, my cash, my life insurance, trust accounts for my children and grandchildren, and even more", Manafort added.

"The question of whether there was any collusion with Russian Federation. was not presented in this case, period, therefore it was not resolved by this case", said Jackson.

Manafort wore a dark suit and tie to the hearing.

Attorney and Newsweek columnist Seth Abramson tweeted that Manafort "will leave federal prison (at the latest) at age 77" and that he "can still offer additional cooperation within the next 12 months to get his sentence reduced".

The change, proposed by Democratic state Attorney General Tish James, aims to fix an unintended loophole in the state's double jeopardy law, which prosecutors have warned could allow defendants with a presidential pardon to argue they can't be charged with similar state crimes. "'Justice" took a 12 year old tax case, among other things, applied tremendous pressure on him and, unlike Michael Cohen, he refused to "break" - make up stories in order to get a "deal.' Such respect for a courageous man!"
