Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort faced his second round of sentencing Wednesday in the Washington DC case over his Ukrainian lobbying efforts.
In his sentencing memo released a couple weeks ago, Mueller accused Manafort of “repeatedly and brazenly” breaking the law — recall, Mueller gave Tony Podesta immunity in this case even though just like Manafort, he failed to file a FARA form in a timely manner.
Corrupt Obama-appointed Judge Amy Berman Jackson sentenced Paul Manafort to an additional 43 months prison time Wednesday, reported CNBC.
Judge Berman Jackson sentenced Manafort to 60 months in prison on one of the two counts, however, he will serve 30 of the months concurrently with his prior sentence.
The judge sentenced Manafort to 13 months on his second criminal count.
“I am sorry for what I have done and for all the activities that have gotten us here today,” Manafort told the judge before she delivered her sentence.
“I will be 70 years old in a few weeks. My wife is 66. She needs me. I need her. I ask you to think of this and our need for each other,” Manafort said in an emotional plea from his wheelchair.
“Please do not take away from us away from each other.”
Judge Jackson admitted Wednesday that Manafort’s sentence had nothing to do with any conspiracy or collusion.
Judge is back on the bench:
"Any conspiracy, collusion… was not presented in this case."

It is important to note that Tony Podesta
Last week, Reagan-appointed judge T.S. Ellis rejected Mueller’s “excessive” recommendation of 19.5-24.5 years and sentenced Paul Manafort to 47 months in prison in the tax and bank fraud case.
In total, Manafort was sentenced to 7.5 years in prison.
The only reason why Paul Manafort was targeted by Mueller is because he is associated with Donald Trump.
Trump should immediately issue Manafort a pardon.
