Manafort jury sent home for the weekend

Manafort jury sent home for the weekend

"I think the whole Manafort trial is very sad", Trump said, responding to shouted out questions from the press. He worked for me for a very short period of time, but you know what?

The jury in former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's fraud trial has submitted a note to the court asking to stop deliberations half an hour early Friday.

"We're very happy to hear the president supports Mr. Manafort", Downing said.

The questions came as the jury began deliberations on Thursday (Friday NZT).

Manafort has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

He has already issued a number of pardons, including for a political ally, former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort arrives for arraignment on a third superseding indictment against him by Special Counsel Robert Mueller on charges of witness tampering, at U.S. District Court in Washington, U.S., June 15, 2018.

He is then believed to have lied to banks to get loans when the money ran out - and is now facing 18 felony counts on tax evasion and bank fraud.

Jurors in the trial are not sequestered but have been instructed not to watch news reports or talk to others about the matter. They return Monday morning.

There is still no verdict in the Paul Manafort trial, yet that hasn't stopped President Donald Trump from weighing in on the case.

Trump had previously indicated that he found Manafort's treatment by the Justice Department "very unfair".

The judge made the comments after receiving requests from the media for the jurors' personal information.

Defence lawyers say the government failed to prove its case and that Manafort relied on underlings to handle his finances.

"We trust jurors to be on their best behavior and wall themselves off but that kind of goes against human nature", Ohlin said.

"I do somehow think he has gotten his back up personally about Greg Andres".

Prosecutors say Manafort hid tens of millions of dollars in foreign income from the IRS, money he made advising politicians in Ukraine.

The jury's been deliberating. He did not indicate he had inside knowledge of their deliberations.

It was the "reasonable doubt" question that caught some legal experts most by surprise as it suggested one or more jurors may be grappling with whether the prosecution met this standard of proof on certain counts.
