President Trump’s former campaign chairman is scheduled to be sentenced this afternoon.
Manafort is facing between nineteen to twenty-four years in prison under the federal sentencing guidelines, but experts believe Manafort will receive around seven years due to his age.
At the age of sixty-nine, that is virtually a death sentence, especially since his health has declined since being imprisoned.
Today’s sentencing is before Judge Ellis, but next week Manafort returns to court to be sentenced by Judge Amy Jackson.
Rumors have existed from day one of a presidential pardon for Manafort, but that won’t prevent state prosecutions which have already started just in case.
If President Trump issues a pardon to Manafort, you can expect a full blown constitutional crisis in government.
