Ankle bracelet time for Manafort

Paul Manafort, Donald Trump's former presidential campaign chairman who was convicted as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation, is out of prison.

Manafort, 71, was released Wednesday morning from FCI Loretto, a low-security prison in Pennsylvania, according to his attorney Todd Blanche.

He gets out of prison four years early because his lawyers said he was at high risk for acquiring COVID-19, and will serve the rest of his time on home confinement.

Manafort's wife is reported to have picked him up at 6:00am today.
