Paul Manafort, the former Donald Trump campaign chairman, was told by a judge on Wednesday that he is a liar and fraud who will spend a total of seven and a half years in prison.
Wearing a dark suit and tie and sitting in a wheelchair because of gout, Manafort was sentenced in a Washington court to about three and a half years in addition to the nearly four years he received last week in Virginia, a punishment that many decried as too lenient.
