The latest news on the punishment of former Trump campaign chairman , Paul Manafort

A federal judge sentenced Paul Manafort, former former Trump campaign chairman , to more than three and a half years in prison.

This comes on top of the four-year sentence he made in a separate case in Virginia last week.

The verdict followed a devastating judgment by the judge and the Manafort criminal prosecutor.

Former Trump campaign president Paul Manafort apologizes for his crimes.

Manafort, 69, showed no emotion when he read his statement Wednesday in court from his wheelchair.

The judge said he would give Manafort confidence to take responsibility for their crimes when they determine his sentence.

This is the second time that the former president of the Trump campaign has been sentenced in so many weeks, and a judge should impose more jail time after about four years of punishment.

Robert Mueller, the team's special adviser, sued Manafort in Washington and Virginia for his work as an overseas adviser to a pro-Russian Ukrainian political party. Manafort was convicted of bank and tax fraud in Virginia and Washington pleaded guilty to two counts of conspiracy, each punishable by up to five years in prison.
