posted by Hannity Staff - 3.07.19

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was sentenced to 47 months in prison Thursday evening after being convicted on eight counts of tax and bank fraud charges last year.

“Manafort’s conviction in August made him the first campaign associate of Trump found guilty by a jury as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe. U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis emphasized ahead of sentencing that the Manafort case is not about Russian interference in the 2016 election,” reports Fox News.

“Ellis said that the guidelines of sentencing Manafort to between 19 and 24 years in prison were ‘excessive for this case,’” adds the article.
