Paul Manafort, the former campaign manager for Donald Trump, has been hospitalized, his lawyer said Tuesday.

“His family and friends are extremely concerned about his health and still do not have a full understanding of his medical condition or well-being,” said Manafort’s lawyer, Todd Blanche.

Manafort, 70, has been imprisoned at Federal Correctional Institution Loretto in Loretto, Pennsylvania.

Manafort was sentenced to seven-and-a-half years for undisclosed lobbying work he did for pro-Russian political figures in Ukraine, as well as tax and bank fraud charges.

The federal Bureau of Prisons said, “For safety and security and privacy reasons, we cannot provide specific information about an inmate’s medical condition.”
