Manafort Transferred to Federal Prison in Wayne County

CANAAN TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- A former campaign chairman for President Donald Trump, sentenced last month to federal prison, has been transferred to a facility in Wayne County.

Paul Manafort is now being housed in the minimum security section at USP Canaan near Waymart.

Manafort was sentenced to seven and a half years in prison last month as part of a plea deal with special counsel Robert Mueller on federal conspiracy, money laundering, and other charges.

According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, Manafort, 70, will be one of about 110 inmates in the prison's satellite camp, which largely houses white-collar criminals. That separates Manafort from more than 1,000 inmates housed in the high-security part of the prison. That section is where convicted killer and gang member Jessie Con-ui stabbed and killed federal Correctional Officer Eric Williams of Nanticoke in 2013.

4. I just Googled it and it is.

It's near Lake Wallenpaupack in the Pocono Mountains of PA. I thought so, I vacationed with my family there for 20 years. I hope a bear attacks him. No wait, that would be cruel to bears.
