US District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson sentenced former campaign chairman for President Donald Trump, Paul Manafort.

The judge sentenced Manafort to 43 more months in prison in addition to the 47 months from his previous sentence but she also delivered some good new for President Trump and his supporters.

In her decision she again helped to kill the Russian collusion theory by stating that it had nothing to do with the Manafort case.

“”The question of whether there was any collusion with Russia… was not presented in this case, period, therefore it was not resolved by this case,” she said.

Is the Russia investigation a witch hunt?

Earlier in the case Manafort apologized for his crimes and said that he was truly remorseful for what he has done.

“My previous allocution I told Judge Ellis I was ashamed of my conduct,” he said. “Apparently it was not at that time clear what was in my heart.”

“I am sorry for what I’ve done,” he said. “Let me be very clear, I accept the responsibility for the acts that caused me to be here today.”

The judge had signaled that she did not think Manafort was being truthful with her and the court even as she was preparing to issue her sentence.

“Manafort and attorneys are still not being straight with me now, even in their sentencing memo,” Judge Jackson said as she prepared to sentence Manafort.
