mickstuder:  However, the judge declared a mistrial on the 10 other charges that Manafort, 69, faced in connection with allegations of tax and bank fraud

 

 

Good to remember that the 10 charges declared a mistrial won't disappear, they will be considered during sentencing along with the others.

The Entire Republican Party Should Be Disbanded

 

Republican Congressional Leadership in House Should be Impeached

 

2016 Presidential Election should be annulled

Manafort convicted on 8 counts of bank, tax fraud

 

ALEXANDRIA, Va. ― Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, was found guilty on Tuesday of eight counts including five tax fraud charges he faced at trial here.

 

However, the judge declared a mistrial on the 10 other charges that Manafort, 69, faced in connection with allegations of tax and bank fraud, CNN and Reuters reported, after jurors could not reach a consensus on them. Jurors heard extensive testimony about Manafort’s tax-free spending on luxury goods and efforts to defraud banks. The verdict came after the jury had indicated earlier in the day that they were deadlocked on at least one count.

 

The verdict marked yet another victory for the special counsel team being led by Robert Mueller, which faced its first trial after securing a string of guilty pleas from Trump campaign associates. Mueller was named as special counsel in May 2017.

Trump Campaign Chairman Guilty 8 Felonies

126 Views
Message 6 of 6

A federal jury in Virginia convicted Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, on eight counts of bank and tax fraud on Tuesday, but was deadlocked on the 10 other charges he faced.

 

The trial was the first public test of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, and while the special counsel was vindicated, the victory wasn’t total.

 
 The jury deliberated for four days after hearing 12 days of arguments, evidence and witnesses. Mueller’s team buried the defendant in an avalanche of emails, tax returns, bank documents, and the damning testimony of bankers, accountants, and Manafort's onetime protégé, Rick Gates. The defense sought to raise doubts about Gates' credibility and about other aspects of the evidence, and was partially successful.
 
The 10 counts will be considered a mistrial.

 

Manafort, 69, also faces another trial on related charges next month in Washington.
