Paul Manafort Didn't Come Out Of Nowhere. Here's How He Got His Start In Dirty Politics

Paul Manafort was sentenced to 7 ½ years in prison as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation.

Manafort's career in politics began with Gerald Ford's 1976 presidential campaign, where he established deep connections as a political lobbyist.

He went on to serve as an international consultant for world leaders, including dictators Mobuto Sese Seko of DR Congo and Ferdinand Marcos of the Philippines.

In 2004, he became an adviser to Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, a pro-Russia strongman who was criticized for backing out of a deal with the EU.

Riots broke out and protesters were killed.

Yanukovych was ousted in 2014.

In March 2016, Trump hired Manafort to manage the RNC.

He was eventually promoted to campaign chairman.

But in September 2018, Manafort pleaded guilty to conspiracy and obstruction.

He was also convicted of eight counts of tax and bank fraud in Virginia.

New York state prosecutors have also charged Manafort with 16 state felonies alleging he took part in a fraud scheme to illegally obtain millions of dollars.
