EX-TRUMP CAMPAIGN CHIEF JAILED FOR FRAUD

Us President Donald Trump’s ex-campaign manager Paul Manafort has been given a 47-month jail sentence for fraud.

He was convicted last year of hiding millions of dollars of income earned by his political consulting in Ukraine.

The charges stem from an inquiry into alleged Russian election meddling in the 2016 us elections.

None of Manafort’s charges relate to allegations of collusion with Russia. Mr Trump has always denied the charge, describing the inquiry as a witch hunt.

The 47-month sentence is far shorter than what was recommended by us department of justice special counsel Robert Mueller.
