investigators when he was supposed to be cooperating.a federal judge in virginia thursday sentenced manafort - president trump's former campaign chairman - to nearly four years in prison, far less than the recommended sentence of 19 to 25 years.blumenthal: "this sentence, in my view, failed to do justice to the very serious crimes that manafort has committed, as well as his utter disrespect for the law."the comments manafort's lawyer made after his client's sentencing only further inflamed democrats - manafort lawyer: "there is no absolutely no evidence that paul manafort was involved in any collusion with any government official from russia."adam schiff - the democrat chairman of the house intelligence committee - fired back via twitter, saying "the statement by paul manafort's lawyer after an already lenient sentence - repeating the president's mantra of no collusion - was no accident. it was a deliberate appeal for a pardon."in deciding manafort's sentence, judge t-s ellis called the recommendatio ns excessive and claimed that manafort "lived an otherwise blameless life."but his resume show's a complicated picture. manafort spent a lifetime enriching himself with lobbying work for dictators and regimes with abysmal human rights records - like former
