But on Wednesday as his sentence was being handed down in Washington, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. announced an indictment against Manafort for "a yearlong residential mortgage fraud scheme through which Manafort and others falsified business records to illegally obtain millions of dollars" in the state of NY.

Manafort, Trump's former campaign chairman, was indicted by a grand jury on charges of mortgage fraud, conspiracy and falsifying business records, the Manhattan district attorney Cyrus Vance said on Wednesday.

The veteran Republican operative has received the longest prison term yet in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential election.

Trump has the authority as U.S. president to pardon Manafort for all his federal convictions, meaning he could be freed from his combined seven-and-a-half-year prison sentence.

The new state charges against Manafort stem from an investigation started by investigators in NY in March 2017, Vance said, roughly seven months before Manafort was indicted on a litany of financial crimes by the special counsel's office.

Both cases stem from an inquiry into alleged Russian election meddling in the 2016 USA elections.

No students were charged, with authorities saying that in many cases the teenagers were unaware of what was going on. A former Yale soccer coach pleaded guilty before the documents went public and helped build the case against others.

Jackson could have given Manafort up to 10 years in prison in the Washington case - five for each of the two conspiracy counts.

The latest sentencing arises from two conspiracy charges Manafort pleaded guilty to previous year.

"On a human basis, it's a very sad day, I feel very badly for him", he told reporters on Wednesday. He has not learned a harsh lesson.

"I pledge to do all I can to accelerate the healing process", he said.

She also said Manafort's expression of remorse rang hollow.

In their memo, prosecutors cast Manafort's conduct as the work of a veteran political operator who served at the pinnacle of both an American presidential campaign and his own, secretive lobbying operation, yet who was also a serial liar and a "bold. hardened" actor who undertook "concerted criminal action" spanning years.

"I am sorry for what I have done and for all the activities that have gotten us here today", he said.

Manafort had asked for mercy, saying the criminal charges against him had "taken everything from me already".

"But for a short stint as a campaign manager in a presidential election, I don't think we'd be here today", Manafort lawyer Kevin Downing told Jackson, and asked her to take media coverage of the case into account in determining the sentence.

"People who didn't realize math was involved should understand there's a great deal of algebra" that goes into sentencing, Jackson said, embarking on a detailed breakdown required under federal law. (Ellis only said that collusion did not factor into Manafort's sentence.) On Wednesday, Manafort's lawyer again claimed there was "no collusion", which, again, was not relevant to the charges for which Manafort was sentenced.

Manafort faced two federal trials because he exercised his option to keep the tax and bank fraud charges in the state where he lived. It was Jackson who, in 2018, revoked Manafort's bail for witness tampering.

The Atlantic's Natasha Bertrand (an MSNBC contributor) tweeted that Kevin Downing, one of Manafort's lawyers, "is saying that Judge ABJ found that there was no evidence of Russian Federation collusion" and that protestors responded, "That's not what she said".

However, he remains only one goal behind City's Sergio Aguero in the race for the Premier League golden boot. The pair has combined to score Burnley's last 9 goals in the Premier League , of which Barnes has scored 5.

Mr Mueller's team called Manafort a "hardened" criminal in a filing last month, arguing he should be held accountable for the "gravity" of his crimes.
