Paul Manafort’s attorney, Kevin Downing, complained on Wednesday about the heightened media attention given to his client who is charged with conspiring against the U.S. government. “If not for a short stint as a campaign manager in a presidential election, I don’t think we’d be here today,” Downing said. Manafort faces his second sentencing by Judge Amy Berman Jackson on Wednesday. Jackson could sentence the former Trump campaign chairman with up to 10 years in prison for conspiring against the U.S., and for a conspiracy to obstruct justice connected to his covert lobbying for foreign powers. The sentence will be added on to the 47 months he was given last week for fraud.
