Manafort sentence reaches 7.5 years in Mueller case

(POLITICO) — Paul Manafort’s prison sentence was upped to seven-and-a-half years on Wednesday morning, bringing an end to Robert Mueller’s most public legal battle and capping a spectacular fall for the globetrotting GOP consultant and former chairman of the Trump campaign.

It’s the longest sentence by far for anyone ensnared in Mueller’s nearly two-year-old probe.
