TODAY: Paul Manafort To Be Sentenced In First Case

Newsweek reports:

Paul Manafort, the former campaign chairman for President Donald Trump who found himself as one of the major players at the epicenter of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, will be sentenced Thursday afternoon at a federal courthouse in Alexandria, Virginia.

In their sentencing memo last month, Mueller’s office recommended a sentence of 19.5 years to 24.5 years in prison for the “millions of dollars involved in the defendant’s crimes, the duration of his criminal conduct, or the sophistication of his schemes.”
