On Thursday, President Donald Trump's former campaign chair Paul Manafort appeared in federal court to receive his sentence. According to reports, Manafort entered the court room in a wheelchair.


On The Lead with Jake Tapper, the CNN host emphasized how historic the moment is.

"Let's take a quick moment to acknowledge, however much we've gotten used to this wild era, that it is simply stunning," Tapper said. "Former campaign chair for the President of the United States is a crook, about to go to prison, maybe even for the rest of his life."
