ury in Paul Manafort financial fraud trial says it's reached a verdict on 8 counts, but remains undecided on 10 others.
The jury in the financial fraud trial of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort suggested to the judge Tuesday that it was stuck on at least one count in the case.
Jurors asked U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III on their fourth day of deliberations how they should fill out the verdict form if they were unable to reach consensus on a single count, though they did not suggest what charge was at issue. The jury of six men and six women also said it would need a new verdict form.

So it took a special counsel to do the job of a entry level IRS agent?
Colossal waste of time & taxpayer money.
In the meanwhile Hillary walks. Equal justice my rear-end.
Where is Sessions indictments of Hillary, Comey, Brennan, Sally Yates
Bruce Ohr, Andrew McCabe, Peter Stzrok, Lisa Page....etc.
Sessions will never touch his friends
“This is still in no way a vindication of the Mueller witch hunt.”
More the opposite.
They couldn’t even get convictions on most of the completely unrelated tax charges on the sleazy all GOP establishment operative they foisted on to Trump’s campaign for a month or so.
Manafort helped elect Trump, the left is out for blood.
Heck, Im still wanting to hear if Timothy Geitner (Obamas sec. of Treasury) ever resolved his illegal tax issues.
Has anyone seen Tony and John Podesta?
Obama and Hillary sell uranium to our enemies and nothin is done.
Manafort is lazy in doing his tax returns and they send him to the slammer.
Please pardon this great patriot Mr President ! This is a politically witch hunt and we all know it
All this does is point out the obvious double standard that exists in our “justice” system.
... and OUR side is in charge!
I’d like to know why:
Trump isn’t firing Sessions.
And Sessions isn’t firing Rosenweasel
And Rosenweasel isn’t firing the seditious bastards in the FBI
and NONE of them are shutting down Mueller’s years-long witch hunt in an investigation WITHOUT A CRIME.
We’re IN CHARGE and the system is STILL allowed to carry on with all of its business-as-usual corruption! That’s what gets under my skin. I keep waiting for SOMEONE or SOMETHING to clean it out and it just doesn’t seem to happen. It’s always “oh, well... wait for THIS report” or “THAT report” or “Wait until after the election!” -— then it will be “Wait until after the Holidays!” then it will be “Wait until the new Congress is seated!” then a thousand other things - with “WAIT” being the key word in each one.
Come on, President Trump - DO SOMETHING.
Yet by rooting for Manafort to be judged not guilty, folks here are basically making it about Trump. They are playing right into the hands of the Trump haters.
Yep, didn’t help my confidence in his innocence when he went that route.
While it does bother me that Clinton and company haven’t been taken to task, I’m not convinced Manafort wasn’t guilty here.
If he evaded taxes and got caught, Trump shouldn’t pardon him.
Jurors have to file tax returns. They understand that Manafort needed to do that as well. If the evidence shows that he cheated on his taxes, then it probably wasn’t hard to find guilty on 5 counts.
Yep, neither does the charges against Michael Cohen. I mean what’s next, are they going to investigate Trumps limo driver for parking tickets?
I hope the judge sentences him to time served. When is sentencing?
I was unaware that Obama and Hillary were on trial in this case.
Who determines the sentence... judge or jury?
“Should have mounted a defense.”
No kidding. I suspect that is the question he asking his defense team right now.
In what year was the tax and bank fraud committed?
