US President Donald Trump’s former campaign chief Paul Manafort has been jailed for 43 more months on charges stemming from the Russia investigation.
It comes a week after the 69-year-old was given a 47-month prison sentence for fraud in a separate case.
The latest sentencing arises from two charges Manafort pleaded guilty to last year.
Speaking from a wheelchair, he told the federal court in Washington DC that he wanted to apologise for his actions.
In a separate development, Wednesday also saw Manafort charged in New York with residential mortgage fraud and other crimes.
