'I've got severe gout and Mueller's men are making me get up early to confess': Paul Manafort's attorneys reveal ex-Trump campaign chair, 69, is 'anxious and depressed' in solitary prison cell

Paul Manafort's attorneys pleaded for sympathy for the Trump campaign chair turned felon Tuesday in a court filing which detailed his failing health.

The document - which also inadvertently disclosed that he had passed the campaign's internal polling to an alleged Russian spy - said that the 69-year-old was suffering from physical and mental health issues and had 'little contact' with his family.

Manafort is to be sentenced first in February for the charges he was found guilty at the end of a federal trial in Alexandria, Virginia, which included money laundering and tax fraud.

He is due to be sentenced separately in federal court in Washington D.C. having pleaded guilty to conspiracy against the United States and conspiracy to obstruct justice.

It was for that case that his attorneys submitted a ten-page memo which revealed his health condition.
