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

I've been that proverbial holdout juror before.
Since he was in the jury box and I was not, and i know nothing to question his virtue, he stuck to his guns, and that is the way it should be.
However, Manafort may not again in a retrial such a blessing.

Manafort....."spent $20 million looking for Russians".

Well, I found one right 'round here locally like. She admits it even (bein' a Russian). Pretty young thing too. Blonde. She reckons there are plenty more such Russians where she comes from (that'd have to be Russia). They aint out to take over the USA and they aint gonna cost you US$20 million to find. They are easily found and right out in the open. All you gotta do is ask and they answer. Hard to be scared of someone so beautiful. Dunno what people are so afraid of..... Shoot, maybe it's 'cause a state of peaceful coexistance and coinhabitance might break out!
