BREAKING: Federal Judge Adds 43 Months to Paul Manafort's Prison Term

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.13.19

A federal judge added an additional 43 months to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s prison term Wednesday; making his total incarceration time 7 ½ years for tax and bank fraud charges as well as witness tampering.

The decision comes weeks after Manafort was sentenced to 47 months in prison for charges uncovered -yet unrelated- to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials during the 2016 election.

“I am sorry for what I have done and for all of the activities that have gotten us here today,” said Manafort during the sentencing. “I know that it was my conduct that brought me here today. For that, I am remorseful.”

The additional time is related to charges of witness tampering and foreign laundering.
