Manafort Indicted by Manhattan DA Hours After DC Sentencing

Paul Manafort had a bad day on Wednesday.

He was hit with an indictment from the Manhattan District Attorney's office just moments after being sentenced to several years in prison by a federal judge.

The Manhattan DA announced the president's former campaign manager was facing 16 counts, including conspiracy, mortgage fraud and falsifying business records related to mortgages Manafort received on his New York-area properties.

The announcement was made less than an hour after a federal judge in Washington, D.C., sentenced Manafort to over three and a half years in federal prison for financial and lobbying crimes as well as obstruction of justice.

That case was a result of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into President Donald Trump.

It is worth noting that if Manafort were convicted on these new charges, he'd be ineligible for a presidential pardon, something President Trump has said he's considering in Manafort's federal cases.

The president can pardon federal crimes, but that authority doesn't extend to state-level offenses.

The Manhattan DA said in a statement, "No one is beyond the law in New York." If convicted on all the New York charges, Manafort could face up to 25 years in prison.
