Manafort lawyer says still no evidence of collusion with Russia

United States News

Paul Manafort escaped a sentence as high as 24 years and instead got less than four when he was sentenced by Judge T.S. Ellis III at federal court in Alexandria, VA, for the eight counts of tax and bank fraud he was convicted of after a trial brought by Robert Mueller’s special counsel probe. Manafort, dressed in a green prison jumpsuit, sat in a wheelchair and addressed the court, saying he had been ‘shunned and humiliated’ and asked for compassion – but offered no apology or remorse. Prosecutors said he had not cooperated and that he deserved between 19 and 24 year. But Reagan-appointee Ellis said that was ‘excessive’ and Manafort ‘had led an otherwise blameless life’ and gave him 47 months. As soon as the judge left, Manafort stood and looked at his wife Kathleen, who was behind him. The ex-Trump campaign chair will be sentenced next week in Washington D.C. by an Obama-appointed federal judge.
