Obama-appointed Judge Amy Berman Jackson sentenced Paul Manafort to an additional 3.5 years in prison on 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.
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.
The mainstream media was abuzz Wednesday boasting about yet another round of sentencing stemming from Robert Mueller’s ‘Russian collusion’ investigation.
Except there was no collusion or conspiracy presented in this criminal case against Paul Manafort and Judge Amy Berman Jackson noted this on Wednesday.
Judge is back on the bench:
"Any conspiracy, collusion… was not presented in this case."

So far, none of the indictments that Robert Mueller has handed down in his ‘Russian collusion’ investigation has led to any sentences remotely related to Trump’s campaign colluding with Russians during the 2016 campaign.
In other words, Mueller’s ‘Russia collusion’ investigation is yielding only process crimes stemming from his investigation or indictments totally unrelated to Russian collusion.
Trump’s former NatSec Advisor General Mike Flynn was charged with making a false statement to federal investigators after he was framed by corrupt FBI officials.
Former Trump campaign volunteer George Papadopoulos was charged with making a false statement to feds after he was framed by corrupt Deep State informants and officials.
Longtime Trump advisor Roger Stone was charged with obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements.
President Trump and his associates are being hunted down by Mueller and his gang of Obama/Hillary donors for the ‘crime’ of defeating Crooked Hillary Clinton.
Where the hell is AG Bill Barr??
