Manafort convicted on 8 counts of bank, tax fraud

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 no verdict could be reached 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.
Muller gets another one. And round 2 for Manafort is next month.

KABOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMM........ :lol:

How long do you plan on holding your breath? The Manafort deal is done. Cohen's going nowhere. Papadopoulos was likely setup, he was intimidated for hours and hours without legal counsel and may pull his guilty plea. Flynn was bankrupted defending himself and only pleaded guilty to protect his son from the same fate after the FBI admitted that Flynn told the truth. Will you be carrying on about Roger Stone next week? Maybe Donald Trump's 2nd grade teacher knows something. You should probably have her exhumed!

Be patient as the facts continue to roll out about the real conspiracy, collusion and obstruction from the dems, Clinton, FBI, DOJ, CIA, foreign agents and ohbummer's State Department

And yet they are all convicted felons.....talking to prosecutors about Rump and his family. I'll wait a bit longer.

We should see another trumpertanterum any time now ;)

You guys are too funny. The guy didn't pay his taxes right years ago and you're ready to crucify Trump. Nice thinking! =D>

Either way, I'm enjoying watching your precious dreams slip away.

Edit: I'm not sure what Trumptantrum you're hoping for but nothing has happened with the Manafort deal other than Mueller wasting $20 million to drag up an old mothballed case on a guy who skated on some taxes and made himself look a little better than he was for a bank loan. Mueller threw the full weight of the US government at the guy and still couldn't find anything on Trump or the campaign. From where I stand, Mueller lost this round.

All most odd. Some guy gets done for tax issues and alleged fraud and the rest of is are supposed to understand this means that President Trump is a Russian spy?

Yep! Those are the dots these guys have been so desperately trying to connect. Hell, the DOJ had Manafort's case mothballed for years because they didn't feel like it was worth the time to pursue. Mueller drug it out, blew the dust off of it and spent $20 million looking for Russians and still barely got half of what he was attempting to prosecute.

Alas, no Russians but these guys have creamed their panties thinking they're going to get Trump.

It looks like Manafort escaped conviction of ALL counts by just 1 vote.

And it involves President Trump how?

All that's happened here is that your prediction of Manafort taking down Donald Trump was completely wrong.

It shows the strength of the case Mueller brought.

It involves Rump because Manafort, a convicted felon, who's conviction is about illegal Russian money was running Rumps campaign.

Manafort's work for the 15 or 20 years involved coordinating PR campaigns between Russia and officials in who countries......just like Cohen is now claims Manafort did for Rump.

Rump is now on his way out and based on his own talk about impeachment I think he knows it.
