Manafort convictions show Mueller's probe is no 'witch hunt' READ MORE

Prosecutors are considering

Duncan also said she would have liked to have heard more from Manafort's defense. Although Trump largely ignored the jarring back-to-back blows at a campaign rally in West Virginia, questions mounted about his possible legal exposure and political future. That would dial the up pressure on Trump to a higher level than before.

At virtually every turn, Trump has sought to dismiss Mueller's inquiry as "a hoax".

"Cohen has done everything but shout from the rooftops that he wants to cooperate", said Ross Garber, adjunct professor at Tulane Law School.

President Donald Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, would have been found guilty of all 18 charges if it weren't for a single juror holding out, another juror told Fox News.

Dean, counsel under President Richard Nixon, went to jail for his role in the Watergate scandal, but also co-operated with the government.

Central to the government's case were depictions of an opulent lifestyle, including a $15,000 ostrich jacket, luxury suits and elaborate real estate that prosecutors say was funded through offshore wire transfers from shell companies in Cyprus and elsewhere. His loyal base of supporters has stayed with him despite his effort to blame "both sides" for the deadly violence between white nationalists and anti-racist protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, for one, and his refusal to side with the US intelligence services over Russia's Vladimir Putin in Helsinki last month, among other controversies.

Even now that Manafort has lost one case, there's always the Trump card: The President retains the ultimate, sole authority to pardon him unconditionally. The Cohen investigation started with a referral from Mueller's team, but was conducted by federal prosecutors in NY.

However, in the charging documents, a news release and comments outside the courthouse, prosecutors did not go as far as Cohen did in open court in pointing the finger at the president.

Manafort decided not to put on any witnesses or testify himself.

President Trump called the verdict a "sad thing" and said Manafort is "a good man". Trump confidants have long argued that the president's fate in such a scenario would ultimately be more a matter of politics than law.

But a plea agreement Cohen signed on Tuesday made no mention of cooperation. He commits so many faux pas, is politically incorrect so often, skirts potential legal issues so frequently, that no one transgression ever seems to stick. "You're voting for which party controls the House and which party controls the Senate". While it is U.S. legal tradition that the president can not be tried, the allegation, if proven, will only increase calls for his impeachment as the congressional elections in November come nearer.

Duncan also said that she did not think that any of the jurors let their pro- or anti-Trump biases influence their final decision. There would presumably be no bar against charging a president after he or she departs the White House.

Air quality to worsen as smoke returns
It's the second summer in a row when air quality has been affected in B.C.by wildfires . A province-wide state of emergency has been in effect since August 15.

Trump acknowledges that Cohen represented him in the "crazy Stormy Daniels deal".

Despite blustery public denials, the fate of Manafort and Cohen has anxious the president's inner circle.

Cohen was a fixer for Trump and his family during his time working for the President, and was often fiercely loyal during interviews.

In April, federal investigators for the Southern District of NY seized roughly 4 million files from Cohen's home, business office and hotel room. The same effect could well be at work in Trump's scandals today: depending on what specific evidence Cohen can offer up against Trump, the stubborn Republican support keeping Trump afloat could yet start to crumble.

Trump has denied having affairs with the women. "We will need another form please", the jury foreman wrote in a note to the court hours before Manafort's conviction and the mistrial counts were announced on Tuesday. Though the proceedings were not connected to Russian election interference, Trump has seethed to confidants that he views the Manafort charges as "a warning shot" from Mueller. Or did some jurors believe Gates and others were not as deeply involved as they said they were in Manafort's alleged banking schemes?
