Manafort Trial Likely to Go Into Next Week

Microphones are set up in front of the Albert V. Bryan United States Courthouse as the jury begins deliberation in the trial of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort

Jurors asked shortly before 3 p.m. "All it would take is one partisan juror attempting to do the president's bidding, and Trump would know that".

Manafort, a veteran Republican operative, faces up to 18 criminal charges related to bank and tax fraud and failure to disclose overseas bank accounts.

Manafort's defense team, which rested its case without calling any witnesses to testify, said the prosecution failed to sufficiently prove Manafort's guilt. "I think instead he's engaged in a campaign strategically created to communicate to some of his former friends like Paul Manafort, like Cohen, and in essence dangle pardons on Twitter". As for reasonable doubt, he described it as "a doubt based on reason" and told jurors it does not require proof "beyond all doubt".

Trump has made previous comments criticizing various federal judges and courts and has been harshly critical of Mueller.

The jury in Manafort's trial was unable to reach a verdict Friday and will reconvene Monday.

As part of the settlement, Bennett forfeited the copyright to a selfie from May 9, 2013 of Bennett and Argento lying in bed. On the day of the alleged assault , Argento and Bennett met for a reunion at the Ritz-Carlton in Marina del Rey.

On Thursday, the jury asked for a definition of "reasonable doubt" and clarification on the law governing the reporting of foreign bank accounts but did not ask any similar questions on Friday.

Manafort is accused of hiding from USA tax authorities an estimated $16 million out of $60 million that he earned advising former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych's political party until 2014, when Yanukovych was ousted by street protests and fled into exile in Russian Federation.

A number of media outlets had earlier requested the names of jurors.

"They go where I go", the judge said.

"I don't feel right if I release their names", he said, adding that he has also faced threats for his role in the trial, according to The Hill.

The federal judge heading the financial fraud trial of Paul Manafort said Friday that he has received unspecified threats during the case and is under the protection of U.S. Marshals. When you look at what's going on, I think it's a very sad day for our country. When the Ukrainian money dried up, they say he lied on loan applications to maintain his cash flow. It was not the first time Trump has weighed in since Manafort's trial began on July 31.

Donald Trump may have just committed an impeachable offense with his latest public comments on the Paul Manafort trial, a political analyst claims.

Judge T.S. Ellis III sent the jury of six men and six women back to resume deliberations Friday shortly after 9:30 a.m.

When she continues to discuss the closing arguments, Maddow discredits the entire defense team by saying they broke pretrial agreements and discussed matters in the argument that the jury was not supposed to consider.
