The two further offences, he acknowledged straffskyld for Washington, D. C., is punishable by up to five years each.

Manafort, which fills 70 years this spring, will even get the opportunity to argue his case before sentencing. It goes as the prosecution wants, he will likely spend the rest of his life in jail.
Manafort and his business partner and second-in-command in Trumps campaigning, Rick Gates, were the first two people who were indicted in Mueller-investigation.

Prosecutors said earlier this month that Manafort and Kilimnik met in august 2016, and that this meeting goes to the "heart" of the Mueller-investigation. Manafort lied about this meeting, and thus, he broke the tos to get a milder punishment.

This means that Manafort can be forced to serve a prison sentence even if president Trump chooses to pardon him for federal crimes, writes the Washington Post.
Trump has not said whether he wants to pardon his former valgkampsjef, but he has previously expressed support for him.SIGNATURE: CNN show Russian documents as the president Trump has signed. Video: CNN Show more
