Manafort jury: guilty on 8 counts, no agreement on the other 10
“Manafort was found guilty of five tax fraud charges, one charge of hiding foreign bank accounts and two counts of bank fraud. He faces a maximum of 80 years in prison.”
Given the hopelessly deadlocked jury, the judge declared a mistrial on the other ten counts. As of the time I type this, the prosecutors have not said whether they intend to re-try the ten undecided counts. To complicate matters still further, Manafort still has to face seven more counts in a completely separate trial.
Manafort’s defense team has not discussed its appeal strategy.

I love that between this and Cohen, Faux just punted and rolled footage of puppies.
I never watch Fox, but I heard that their lead story was a murder committed by an undocumented immigrant.
Who turned out to be here legally, on a visa, working for a big GOP donor. FOX didn’t mention that part, though.
Hopefully, the appeal strategy is just as genius as the defense strategy.
Simple, wait for the pardon…
