    Paul Manafort Sentencing

    Paul Manafort Sentencing

    The hearing is ongoing, the sentence has not been given yet. I think she will hand him a maximum sentence.

    Some key remarks by the sentencing judge below:

    Ludge to Manafort: Prison is "hard on everyone, young and old, rich or poor"

    Judge Amy Berman Jackson is now correcting statements made about Paul Manafort's solitary confinement, which was a significant feature of his allocution today.

    She said he was in jail not for violating the gag order, but because he broke the bail by breaking the law after his arrest.

    Jackson reminded the court he was first sent to Northern Neck Regional Jail, saying she was concerned about how far that jail was, but then Manafort's team asked for that location. Then he was moved to Alexandria because of their complaints.
    She said Manafort "realized the tactic had backfired immediately." He was in a self-contained ("VIP") suite in Northern Neck, Jackson added.
    "I'm not going to split hairs over whether the word solitary was accurate because he had a room of his own," Jackson said.

    Judge says today's sentencing "will not incriminate anyone"
    At the top of her remarks, Judge Amy Berman Jackson was quick to say that today's sentencing "will not incriminate anyone" in the ongoing investigation.
    "Any conspiracy, collusion... was not presented in this case," she said. "Therefore it was not resolved by this case."

    Count 1: 60 months, with 30 months concurrent to EDVA sentence
    Count 2: 13 months, to run to consecutive to Count 1 and EDVA sentence

    Result? 43 months added to Manafort's 47-month EDVA sentence

    So 7.5 years.

    Re: Paul Manafort Sentencing

    According to CNN...
    Live updates: Paul Manafort sentenced - CNNPolitics

    Judge Amy Berman Jackson has ordered Paul Manafort to serve an additional 43 months in prison, on top of his sentence he received last week from the court in Virginia.
    Comments? Enough or too little?

    It was said that he could face up to ten years in prison atop the 43 months received last week.

    Some key remarks by the sentencing judge below:
    Apparently she got him on obstruction/witness tampering, and by segregating that as separate crimes from those in VA, she took the step of having the sentencing portion of those crimes run consecutively - rather than concurrently.

    Fine with me, he will die in prison anyway.

    I believe the max he could've received was 10 so... 7.5, not getting off so light this time Manny-boy.

    Let's hope so. The man is vermin, having made at least $60 mil from dictators off human misery.

    I think Judge Jackson's sentencing appears fair.
