Paul Manafort, former campaign chairman to President Trump, hospitalized for cardiac event
ABC reports that President Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has been hospitalized for a cardiac event while serving his sentence for charges related to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.
Manafort has been serving his sentence in a Pennsylvania federal correction institute.
Sources told ABC he's been recovering since last Thursday at a local Pennsylvania hospital, where he's under the watch of correctional officers.
Manafort was scheduled for a court appearance Wednesday, but his attorney was informed that he will not be appearing.
In 2018, Manafort appeared in court in a wheelchair and sought leniency during his sentencing due to health issues.
He was found guilty of tax fraud and conspiracy and was sentenced by a federal judge in March.
He is slated to be released Dec. 25, 2024
