Special counsel Robert Mueller will allow former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort to keep his expensive clothing, but he will still have to hand over millions of dollars in assets to the government.
Manafort, who will have to serve seven and a half years in prison on tax and bank fraud charges stemming from Mueller’s report into Trump campaign officials, will have to pay $36 million dollars, using property and assets to pay the government, debtors, and victims.
He will not, however, have to forfeit his fashion collection, including a $18,500 bomber jacket, $15,000 ostrich track jacket, $9,500 ostrich vest and a $6,500 camel hair sport coat.

There’s also a $9,500 ostrich vest from Alan Couture, from the invoices, but sadly no photo. Also an $18,500 python jacket, guessing it’s this: pic.twitter.com/EsDZiUwBF7

The former Trump campaign manager was originally hit with a 47-month prison sentence from a Virginia case on March 7. Weeks later, he received a 73-month prison sentence from a federal judge in Washington, D.C. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Roger Stone Reviews Paul Manafort’s Fashion)
