Trump To Consider Pardon For Manafort

But the jury of six men and six women could not reach consensus on 10 other counts.

Judge Ellis expressed his skepticism throughout the first trial and was often antagonistic to prosecutors; it was obvious that Ellis didn't think the trial should have occurred in the first place.

"I feel very badly for Paul Manafort and his wonderful family". That happened on Day 2 of Manafort's trial in Alexandria, Virginia, on charges of tax and bank fraud, not related to Robert Mueller's Russian Federation election tamper investigation, though that distinction was lost on Trump.

"But the one holdout would not", she said in an interview Wednesday on Fox News at Night with Shannon Bream.

"It was one person who kept the verdict from being guilty on all 18 counts", Duncan said.

Duncan said she was speaking out to inform the public and that she was not concerned about her safety, even after the judge ruled that juror names would not be released in order to keep them safe. "We will need another form please", the jury foreman wrote in a note to the court hours before Manafort's conviction and the mistrial counts were announced on Tuesday.

Fox News reporter Ainsley Earhardt said Trump told her in an interview on Wednesday that "he would consider" pardoning Manafort.

"There was one holdout", Duncan said.

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has been found guilty on eight charges of tax and bank fraud, and is facing a second trial next month in Washington stemming from his lobbying work for the then-Russian backed Ukrainian government.

"I think I expected a little more", Duncan said.

Manafort was found guilty on all five tax fraud charges related to his tax returns from 2010 to 2014, which contain a box to check on the existence of foreign bank accounts.

Giuliani also said Trump was very upset with how Manafort was being treated while in custody.

Giuliani said he and Sekulow provided their advice to delay any possible pardons for people linked to the Mueller probe in the last "3 to 5 weeks" - in the wake of a series of pardons Trump granted this summer.

"It would be both a legal and a strategic error to pardon Paul Manafort, not to mention the potential political repercussions", professor Lisa Kern Griffin of the Duke University School of Law said. The president said the campaign charges against Cohen were flimsy, but because he had committed other infractions unrelated to Trump, he had reason to lie. "He said yes, absolutely I understand", Giuliani said.

Other Trump associates who have pleaded guilty as part of Mueller's investigation include former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former campaign adviser George Papadopoulos and Gates.

He reprised a litany of complaints about the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, attacking both without providing evidence they had treated him and his supporters unfairly.

Phillips went to say that if Trump were to grant Manafort a presidential pardon, that "could basically wipe out the federal investigation and prosecution", adding that "the chances of a state prosecution would loom greater if that were to occur".
