Manafort hospitalized for heart condition
NEW YORK — Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has been hospitalized while serving his federal prison sentence.
Manafort, who is serving more than seven years in prison after being convicted as part of the special counsel’s Russia investigation, was moved to the hospital last Thursday from a federal prison in Pennsylvania, his attorney confirmed Tuesday.
Manafort, 70, is suffering from a heart-related condition, two people familiar with the matter told The Associated Press on Tuesday. They were not permitted to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.
Manafort was among the first to be charged in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, which examined possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 election campaign.
