Washington, March 15 (RHC)-- A U.S. federal judge in Washington, D.C., sentenced President Donald Trump’s former campaign chair Paul Manafort to an additional 43 months in prison on criminal conspiracy charges.  The new sentence means Manafort will serve a 7 and a half-year prison term, after he was sentenced last week by a federal judge in Virginia on eight counts of bank fraud and tax evasion. 

Moments after Manafort received his sentence, Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr. unsealed an indictment charging him with 16 counts of residential mortgage fraud and conspiracy. 
President Trump hasn’t ruled out a pardon for his former campaign chair, but Trump will not have the power to pardon Manafort on the New York charges if he’s convicted.
