Help us grow and continue telling Israel's story to the world.

Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman, would have been convicted of all 18 charges of financial fraud if it weren't for one holdout juror, who forced a mistrial on 10 counts, a jury member said.

She said she drove to the courthouse every day with a hat in her back seat emblazoned with the slogan "Make America Great Again" and that she plans to vote for Trump again if he runs for re-election in 2020.

Manafort was convicted on Tuesday of two counts of bank fraud, five counts of tax fraud and one charge of failing to disclose foreign bank accounts.

In an interview with Mother Jones on August 21-the day Manafort was convicted-legal expert Channing D. Phillips (who spent nearly 30 years in the U.S. Justice Department and served as acting U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia) speculated that between the eight charges Manafort has already been convicted of and the charges he will face in Judge Jackson's courtroom in September, it might not be worth the government's time to pursue those ten mistrial counts any further. However, the Judge T.S. Ellis ultimately rejected the defense's calls for a mistrial, saying he did not see sufficient evidence for it.

Cohen, who served as Trump's personal attorney and worked in his Trump Organization, pleaded guilty Tuesday to eight counts that included tax fraud and campaign finance violations.

We don't know if Mueller will try again to prosecute the other 10 charges the jury was hung up on.

Speaking to Fox & Friends host Ainsley Earhardt in an interview broadcast Thursday, the president said: 'I would give myself an A+. Juror names are redacted in the transcripts, and Ellis has placed them under seal. "I think he feels bad for Manafort", she said.

Can Trump Pardon Someone Who's Involved In The Russia Investigation?

"The president seems inclined to tease the idea of a pardon", she said, referencing Trump's praise for Manafort after the guilty verdicts were announced, "but I doubt he will be foolhardy enough to issue one". "And no one is above the law".

She also said the jury "agreed to throw out the testimony" of Manafort protege Rick Gates, who pleaded guilty in Mueller's investigation and agreed to cooperate with investigators, and focus instead on the documents. It won't be decided by a jury.

Trump also suggested that prosecutors had not been as aggressive in pursuing Democrats, including Hillary Clinton, who was not charged following an FBI investigation of her use of a private email server while secretary of state.

According to the transcripts, the complaining juror, a woman, heard another juror say: "I don't believe the defense has ... much of a case. they don't have much to present or to refute what's already occurred".

Duncan said that the remaining juror felt that she had reasonable doubt.

"I think we all went in there, like we were supposed to and assumed Mr. Manafort was innocent". "We applied the evidence, our notes, the witnesses, and we came up with the guilty verdicts on the eight counts".
