Manafort hears from one judge, appeals to another as he awaits sentencing

(CNN)Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, in the last days before he learns how long he’ll spend in prison, is facing an uphill battle for leniency from judges in two federal courts.

In Virginia, he submitted letters of support Friday from friends and family and a 40-page memo arguing why he shouldn’t spend the rest of his life in prison. And in DC, a judge said Friday that she won’t change her finding that he intentionally lied about his contact with his Russian associate Konstantin Kilimnik, breaking his plea agreement.
