Reuters is reporting that the Manhattan district attorney is preparing to file state criminal charges against Paul Manafort.

Manafort, President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, could receive a pardon by the president for federal crimes.

District Attorney Cyrus Vance is reportedly expected to seek charges whether or not Trump pardons Manafort.

Manafort was convicted last August of bank and tax fraud.

He is due to be sentenced in a federal court in Virginia on March 8, and faces up to 24 years in prison and a fine of up to $24 million.

Manafort is also due to be sentenced on March 13 in a parallel federal case in Washington.
