Trump's election campaign head sentenced
New Delhi, Mar.14 (HS): Trump election campaign head Paul Manafort has been got a sentence of 47 months imprisonment for conspiracy and Paul has also pleaded guilty for the offence. This case is related to fraud done during election. Speaking from a wheelchair, he told the federal court in Washington DC that he wanted to apologize for his actions. In a separate development, Wednesday also saw Manafort charged in New York with residential mortgage fraud and other crimes. It is worthwhile to mention here that president Trump has the power to pardon his former aide for the federal crimes - but not for the charges brought in New York. \"I do feel badly for Paul Manafort, that I can tell you,\" Trump told reporters after the sentencing on Wednesday. Asked if he was planning to pardon Manafort, the president answered: \"I have not even given it a thought, as of this moment. It''s not something that''s right now on my mind." Both cases for which Manafort has been convicted stem from an inquiry into alleged Russian election meddling in the 2016 US elections. None of Manafort''s charges, however, relates to allegations of collusion with Russia. Trump has always denied the charge, describing the inquiry as a "witch hunt" Hidusthan Samachar/Pramod
