Mueller Memo Outlines Paul Manafort’s ‘Repeated and Brazen’ Life of Crime – The Daily Beast

Paul Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman, could face up to and 22 years in prison for conspiring against the U.S. and a conspiracy to obstruct justice connected to his covert lobbying on behalf of Ukraine’s former pro-Russian government.

Manafort is already looking at a stiff sentence from a separate case against him in Virginia on tax and bank fraud charges. A pre-sentence investigation report for that conviction estimated that he faces a recommended sentence of between 19 to 24 years in prison.

President Trump has repeatedly praised Manafort and hinted that he would not rule out a pardon for his former campaign manager.
