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.
