Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr., said a NY grand jury charged Manafort with 16 counts including residential mortgage fraud, conspiracy, falsifying business records and a scheme to defraud.
The Manhattan District Attorney's Office says Manafort is facing 16 charges related to an alleged "year-long residential mortgage fraud scheme" in which he and others allegedly falsified records to obtain millions of dollars.
On top of the 47 months term he received last week, Manafort could have faced an additional 10 year sentence on Wednesday in Mueller's investigation into ties between the Trump election campaign and Russian Federation.
That sentence came amid widespread speculation that Trump could pardon Manafort for remaining loyal and not providing any evidence damaging to the president during the two-year Mueller investigation.
Once a globe-trotting political operative who helped elect President Trump and three of his Republican predecessors, Manafort returned to federal court as a felon apologizing for his criminal conduct in the hard fall from his power-broker days.

The latest sentencing arises from two conspiracy charges Manafort pleaded guilty to previous year.
Nonetheless, her sentence on Wednesday could have been harsher: Manafort was facing the possibility of another ten years in prison as opposed to another 43 months. The Mueller indictment states that Manafort got the apartment for $2.85 million after transferring funds from a company in Cyprus, then falsely claimed it was a second home for his daughter and son-in-law, and used it as an Airbnb rental. He has not learned a harsh lesson. But they're rich, she said, so they can deal. She also said Manafort's "career was spent gaming the system". "For these mistakes, I am remorseful".
Manafort appears for sentencing in this court sketch
After the hearing, Downing criticized Jackson's sentencing as "callous", "hostile" and "totally unnecessary" as he was shouted down by protesters.
Jackson said Manafort's dishonesty is ongoing.
Manafort's attorneys have said in court filings, and repeated after his Virginia sentencing, that he was never accused of collusion or any Russia-related crimes. After Ellis handed down Manafort's 47-month sentence last week, Trump said he felt "very badly for Paul Manafort".
In a pre-sentencing statement, Jackson lit into Manafort for stealing from taxpayers to buy gaudy suits, failing to show genuine contrition, and being a complete liar. "I ask you to think of this and our need for each other as you deliberate".
"The defendant is not public enemy number one", she said.
The prosecutors are expected to do the same later in the week for Rick Gates, a Manafort business associate and former key Trump campaign aide, who pleaded guilty to fraud and lying to investigators. Presidential pardons extend to federal, not state, crimes.
Jackson ruled on February 13 that Manafort had breached his agreement in the Washington case to cooperate with Mueller's office by lying to prosecutors about three matters pertinent to the Russia probe including his interactions with a business partner they have said has ties to Russian intelligence.
