A memo filed by prosecutors from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office with guidelines for the sentencing of Paul Manafort, President Trump's former campaign chair who was convicted last year of eight counts of financial fraud, was made available to the public on Saturday with some redactions. The memo, which was sent to Judge Amy Berman Jackson on Friday, did not recommend a specific amount of sentencing time for Manafort. But the authors noted that Manafort "repeatedly and brazenly violated the law" for over a decade and showed a lack of remorse. A previous sentencing document from Mueller's office recommended Manafort be sentenced to between 19 and 25 years in prison, a penalty that could see him spend the rest of his life behind bars.
