Judge: Manafort Faces 300+ Years In Prison


A federal judge says former Donald Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort is facing over 300 years in prison if fully convicted.  Manafort has been charged with multiple counts of bank fraud, conspiracy and tax fraud.  Federal judge T.S. Ellis of Eastern Virginia wrote Tuesday that given the nature of the charges against Manafort and the apparent evidence against him, he faces the very real possibility of life in prison.  The 68-year-old Manafort faces a maximum of 305 years in prison if found guilty of all charges.  Ellis says Manafort is a flight risk, and that he has the resources and connections to flee before his trial.  

He's currently under house arrest and is wearing two GPS monitors, one from the Virginia court and one from a DC court.
