A federal judge on Wednesday sentenced President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort to 73 months in prison for two conspiracy charges arising from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson said 30 of the months would run concurrently with Manafort's sentence last week in a separate case.
