Paul Manafort in court for sentencing; faces 25 years in prison

Alexandria, Virginia (CNN)Paul Manafort is in a federal courtroom Thursday afternoon to be sentenced for defrauding banks and the government and failing to pay taxes on millions of dollars in income he earned from Ukrainian political consulting — charges that stemmed from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

The penalty may be steep enough to keep the longtime lobbyist and former Trump campaign chairman in prison for the rest of his life.
Manafort, 69, was wearing a green jumpsuit that said “ALEXANDRIA INMATE” as he entered the courtroom in a wheelchair and holding a cane.
