WASHINGTON ― A federal judge sentenced former Trump campaign chairman to additional prison time on Wednesday, bringing his total prison sentence in the cases against him to about seven and a half years.
“This defendant is not public enemy No. 1, but he’s not a victim either,” U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson of the District of Columbia said before imposing her sentence, which came to just over six years. Some of the sentence will be served concurrently with the sentence imposed against Manafort .
Manafort, Jackson said, engaged in wrongdoing not just to support his family but to sustain an “opulent” lifestyle, including more homes than one family could enjoy and “more suits than one man can wear.”
