Manafort sentence reaches seven-and-a-half years in Mueller case

UPDATE, 12:09 p.m.: Paul Manafort’s prison sentence was upped to seven-and-a-half years on Wednesday morning, bringing an end to Robert Mueller’s most public legal battle and capping a spectacular fall for the globetrotting GOP consultant and former chairman of the Trump campaign.

It’s the longest sentence by far for anyone ensnared in Mueller’s nearly two-year-old probe. Manafort’s punishment reached its final length after U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson on Wednesday gave Manafort an additional roughly three-and-a-half years in prison for a series of lobbying and witness tampering crimes he pleaded guilty to last fall. Manafort also must serve nearly four years for his conviction in a jury trial for financial fraud crimes in Virginia.

    I’m going to guess Manafort serves his sentence in some lightweight Club Fed type of prison with other nonviolent crooks. He won’t have to worry about dropping the soap in the shower.
