Manafort juror said one holdout 'exasperated' others with her logic

Manafort trial Long jury deliberation could be bad news for prosecution

Bank fraud conspiracy ($3.4 million loan).

"He saw the conviction of a former campaign chairman on tax fraud, being Paul Manafort, and then Michael Cohen was going to be, and could possibly have been indicted for similar charges of tax fraud and bank fraud", Davis said.

When Paul Manafort's jury of 12 Northern Virginians couldn't reach a unanimous agreement on 10 criminal charges, it was because of one juror.

"We're supposed to assume he's innocent and therefore he does not need to defend himself, and the judge made that very clear, that there is no requirement for him to do so". A spokesperson for Mr. Mueller's office declined to comment. "I did not want Paul Manafort to be guilty, but he was, and no one's above the law". " "Justice" took a 12 year old tax case, among other things, applied tremendous pressure on him and, unlike Michael Cohen, he refused to "break" - make up stories in order to get a 'deal.' Such respect for a courageous man!"

A federal jury convicted Manafort, handing a victory to Special Counsel Robert Mueller. But it was the first test of the special counsel's ability to prosecute a case in a federal courtroom amid intense criticism from the president and his allies that the inquiry is a biased and unjustified witch hunt.

Duncan wants to see the full arc of justice applied to the president's 2016 campaign chairman, she said Friday, and warned against action that would deny it.

"What I know thus far doesn't warrant declaring a mistrial", Ellis told the attorneys August 14.

It doesn't happen enough at United. "We know the English market is quite high and I think that sometimes puts clubs off".

Duncan said the documentary evidence was more than strong enough to overcome the testimony of Rick Gates, Manafort's former right-hand man and the prosecution's star witness, whose credibility withered under cross-examination. On Tuesday, Cohen pleaded guilty to eight federal charges, including campaign finance violations, in federal court in NY.

The defense lawyers also suggested that Mr. Manafort had been targeted by prosecutors to pressure him into cooperating with Mr. Mueller's inquiry into possible collusion by the Trump campaign with Russian Federation in the 2016 election. Manafort was found guilty on eight counts and the jury was deadlocked on 10 others. This is after the jury was unable to come to a consensus on those counts.

Manafort's trial in the District of Columbia, set to begin September 17, will cover much of the same ground but will scrutinize more closely his political work from 2006 to 2017, during which he allegedly reaped $30 million as a consultant for pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine.

Manafort was found guilty of five tax fraud charges, one charge of hiding foreign bank accounts and two counts of bank fraud. Trump called Earhardt "a truly great person" while tweeting a promotion of her book in May. "This [special counsel] case is a unusual case".

LUCAS: Well, the jury deliberated for around four days. To many of those involved in the anti-Marcos protest movement, especially in the days of chaos following the Aquino assassination, Manafort's name is familiar as he served as a "consultant" to the ailing dictator, a high-profile lobbyist who tried to shore up U.S. support for Marcos during the Reagan years. He was also convicted of failing to report foreign bank accounts in 2012 and of two bank fraud charges that accused him of lying to obtain millions of dollars in loans after his consulting income dried up. "He was just as guilty as Paul Manafort, maybe even more ..." It's really at the discretion of prosecutors.

None of the charges in either of these cases relate to his work with the 2016 Trump campaign, but the trials represent the first major public hearing of the findings of the Mueller investigation, which officially was charged with investigating "collusion" with the Russian government by that campaign.
