A former top advisor for President Donald Trump was transferred to a federal prison in Wayne County. Paul Manafort is housed at the United States Penitentiary Canaan near Waymart, according to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons. Manafort, 70, was sentenced last month to 7½ years in prison for his guilty plea to charges stemming from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s alleged meddling in the 2016 presidential election. USP Canaan is a high security prison with a minimum security satellite camp. The Washington Post reported Manafort is housed at the minimum security facility. He is scheduled to be released in December 2024.
