Manafort pleaded guilty to two counts of conspiracy last year, which each carried a maximum sentence of five years in prison.

"The defendant is not public enemy number one", US District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson said in delivering the sentence in a hushed Washington courtroom.

A federal judge in Washington had minutes earlier ordered Manafort to spend a total of 7.5 years in federal prison for a decade's worth of financial and lobbying crimes and obstruction of justice.

Manafort said in court he's "sorry for what I have done".

This March 7, 2019, courtroom sketch depicts former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, center in a wheelchair, during his sentencing hearing in federal court before judge T.S. Ellis III in Alexandria, Va. Manafort was sentenced to almost four years in prison for tax and bank fraud related to his work advising Ukrainian politicians, a significant break from sentencing guidelines that called for a 20-year prison term. The additional 43 months will be tacked on to Manafort's Virginia sentence, meaning that he will serve 90 months - or seven-and-a-half years - in jail, in all.

The federal judge in the D.C. case, Jackson, concluded that Manafort gave false information, and on Wednesday she again rejected defense attorneys' efforts to get her to reconsider.

He led a sophisticated scheme "to avoid a duty all Americans have" to pay their taxes, Weissmann said, hiding wealth in 30 foreign bank accounts containing more than $50 million for his work for the government of Ukraine and Deripaska. However, Manafort has been in jail since June after Jackson revoked his bail for seeking to obstruct ongoing investigations into Russian political interference. "Please let my wife and I be together", Manafort said.

"I think the judge showed that she is incredibly hostile toward Mr. Manafort and exhibited a level of callousness that I've not seen in a white-collar case in over 15 years of prosecutions", Downing told reporters, noting that he was "disappointed" by the sentence. The prosecutor said Manafort took steps to hide his foreign lobbying work, laundered millions of dollars to fund a lavish lifestyle and then, while on house arrest, coached other witnesses to lie on his behalf.

In August 2018, Cohen pled guilty to eight criminal charges, including bank and tax fraud and campaign finance violations-before pleading guilty, in November 2018, to lying to Congress about plans to build a Trump Tower Moscow in Russian Federation.

Fox News' Judge Andrew Napolitano slammed convicted former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort for having lied in front of a federal court, saying that is the most "damning" thing he could have done to himself.

Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort arrives for a hearing at the E. Barrett Prettyman US Courthouse on 23 May 2018 in Washington, DC. Gates later pleaded guilty to conspiracy and lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Vance's charges are at the state level, and allege that Manafort committed residential mortgage fraud, attempted residential mortgage fraud, conspiracy and falsification of business records.

But Manafort admitted guilt on all charges in his Washington plea.

During Wednesday's hearing, Jackson ruled that Manafort should get a tougher sentence because he acted in a leadership role, directing others to participate in a crime.

Most of the charges Manafort faced dealt with consulting work that the longtime political consultant did in Ukraine from 2004 to 2014.
