Written by thereachfm on March 14, 2019
On the foreign scene, US President Donald Trump’s former campaign chief Paul Manafort has been jailed for 43 more months on charges stemming from the Russia investigation.
US District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson on Wednesday sentenced Manafort to a total of 73 months, of which 30 were to run concurrently with a previous sentence which Manafort pleaded guilty to last year.
While giving his statement in courtroom, Manafort apologised for his actions while agreeing to co-operate with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation in a deal for a possible lighter sentence.
