Paul Manafort Sentenced To 47 Months In Prison😲
Former campaign manager and political consultant for President Donald Trump , Paul Manafort, has been sentenced to 47 months in prison.
The sentencing took place on Thursday in the District of Columbia, where it was presided over by Judge TS. Ellis. We are told that Manafort was given less than four years, after facing the possibility of a 25 year long sentence.
Paul Manafort, however, is required to pay a minimum of $6 million, with the maximum being $25 million as it is not yet clear how much money Manafort is to turn over to the federal government.
Many critics and even the prosecutors became disappointed in the fact that the 69 year old only got 47 months. Sources say they at least wanted 19 years. Luckily for Manafort, Judge Ellis deemed him “a good friend and generous person to others ” and that the suggested sentencing was a bit excessive.
If you recall, Paul Manafort, faced up to 25 years in prison for eight felonies which consists of hiding millions overseas, cheating the U.S. out of millions in taxes as well as defrauding the banks that lent him the money.
Looks like someone got off easy, but will the next person be so lucky. 🤔
