ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) The Latest on the Paul Manafort trial (all times local):
The jury in the financial fraud trial of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort wants to know what to do if it cannot reach a consensus for a single count in the case.
Jurors posed the question to U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III on their fourth day of deliberations. They also said they would need a new verdict form.

Innocent on all but one count?
I will laugh my ass off if manafort walks.
Charge him with colluding with russia, or drop it
Pretty rare for the media to get me rooting for a tax cheat
Just judging from my experience as a foreman on 2 different juries and a juror on another, it sounds like the jury is almost done with all the charges, but one is causing the jury to hang. Also, it sounds like the foreman screwed up filling out one of the verdict forms, so he’s requesting another. The foreman typically fills out a verdict form for each charge. The verdict form reflects the verdict of the jury for a charge.
A tax cheat versus the media? Not even close my friend. lol
Why is the IRS not investigating this????
The only member of the jury that matters is Juror 13, and his name is Donald Trump. I
Hard to read into this.
It could mean the jury is stuck on 1 charge.
And already made verdicts on other 17.
Who knows what those verdicts are.
That can be read several ways. One of whuch is: We cant agree on any single count. I say they return all 18 counts as not guilty.
We’re all the counts in some way related? Seems strange if they were and can’t come to agreement on one,of course they could all be different verdicts
Hung jury on all counts would be my guess.
Actually, they did years ago, but determined there was not enough evidence to charge him
I read it as they can’t agree on any count.
Chris Plante WMAL just said he was reading comments on a tweeter report and according to one post a Juror was out to dinner in DC with friends and said they found him guilty of 9 counts and were hung up on a few.....If that is true that a juror was talking..it is illegal and could be grounds for a dismissal.....Hope it is true or they are dead locked on everything. If true hope the Judge and Lawyers of Manafort hear about this
More likely, guilty on all but one count.
They did, but closed the investigation for lack of evidence, Mulehead revived. But that’s why this trial is in Virginian and not DC, because this court with jurisdiction on tax matters. The DC judge is biased.
About 90 percent of the federal defendants found guilty.
Are ANY of the charges actually Russia related???
Yes, every single count was about money laundering and the obstruction of justice Mueller’s team said that created.
If true, Trump deserves all of the harm that will come from having let this nonsense fester for so long. It starts with hiring Sessions and leaving him at DOJ.
