Paul Manafort sentenced to 47 months in prison

Paul Manafort was sentenced to 47 months in prison Thursday for tax crimes and bank fraud. The sentence is significantly lighter than many expected. Prosecutors had cited federal sentencing guidelines that called for 19-1/2 to 24 years in prison. Manafort thanked the presiding judge for conducting a fair trial.

Well the only reason he's going to prison is because he worked with Trump. The convictions have nothing to do with collusion and the witch hunt marches on.

Is this for the stuff he did when he was in the Podesta group? If so, why not look into the other partners while you're at it?

Wait, not for Russian collusion with Trump? But the media said...

I hope AOC demands a stiffer sentence for her campaign manager as well... I doubt it though.
