Manafort sentenced to 7.5 years total in prison for federal crimes

Manafort sentenced to 7.5 years total in prison for federal crimes | 13 March 2019 | Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was ordered Wednesday to serve an additional 43 months on federal conspiracy charges, bringing his total sentence between two federal courts to 7.5 years in twin cases stemming from special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation. US District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson told Manafort that, despite his apologies to the courtroom, his lawyers' arguments about the absence of any charges directly linked to collusion in the 2016 election were "just one more thing that's inconsistent with the notion of any genuine acceptance of responsibility." Manafort's admitted crimes span several years but do not touch on his work as Trump's campaign chairman.
