The Daily Caller ^ | 08/17/2018 | Kevin Daley

Judge T.S. Ellis III revealed in open court Friday that he has received death threats relating to his presiding over Paul Manafort’s trial for bank and tax fraud at a federal court in Alexandria, Virginia.

The judge has since retained the protection of the U.S. Marshals Service.

“I have the marshal’s protection,” Ellis said. “I don’t even go to the hotel alone. I won’t even reveal the name of the hotel.”

“I had no idea this case excited this emotion in the public,” he added.

Antifa and their friends in the fake news media apparently didn’t like the way he conducted the trial.

If he the Jury is hung, he should dismiss the case with prejudice.

The US Marshals Service is part of the DOJ; something to think about.

He was hard on the prosecution in the beginning. That is an unforgivable sin when the defendant is the tie that proves that Trump is a Russian Spy.

The liberals are claiming the threats are from Trump supporters. We all know they threats will be coming from liberals. They’re just an angry bunch of idiots.

Once the names get out....it will be impossible to accomplish any of these court cases. Jury members will beg out and say the hassle is not worth the effort. At that point, Mueller’s entire campaign is screwed up.

It also begs question on the act of impeachment, if things ever get that far, and how the Senators will have to be guarded around the clock with the same issues. This has all opened up a Pandoras Box.

The NY Times ridiculed him line by line. They have blood on their hands if anything happens to him.

Hotel room?

Where have we heard that mentioned before? Arkansides anyone?

I like this judge, so I sure hope he has his “suicide” insurance paid up.

Are you kidding me....if POTUS, Trump ever goes up for impeachment.....get ready for civil war like this country has never seen!!! Democrats, be careful what you wish for...you might just get some of your own medicine, from millions of American citizens, and I can assure you, you will not like it. Sadly...you have only brought it on ourselves.

Find all the people that have made threats and lock them in prison for 25 years.

Why would we threaten him?

He’s doing a service to the nation, and that falls in line with our wishes.

If Mueller’s case fails, they’ve lost the closest link to Trump and this looks like the deep state witch hunt it always was.

And if Mueller’s case succeeds, they still don’t have a case against Trump.

Not to cast aspersions, but I don’t think the threats are coming from the right! Arm yourselves, folks!
