THE VERDICT IS IN – Mueller FAILS AGAIN To Prove Any Collusion!

The jury in the Manfort trial has come back with a mixed verdict.

They announced some guilty and some mistrial.

This story is developing.

Fox News

A federal jury in Virginia convicted former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort on eight counts related to bank and tax fraud, making him the first campaign associate of President Trump found guilty by a jury as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe.

But in a note passed to Judge T.S. Ellis III on Tuesday afternoon, the jury said it could not come to a decision on the ten other counts. A mistrial was declared on those counts.

The jury began deliberating last Thursday after a three week trial where prosecutors said Manafort hid income earned from political work overseas from the IRS while fraudulently obtaining millions in bank loans.  Manafort, 69, had pleaded not guilty.

Earlier Tuesday, the 12-member jury signaled difficulty reaching consensus on at least one count, as deliberations stretched into their fourth day.

The note passed to Ellis III asked: “If we cannot come to consensus on a single count…what does that mean for the final verdict?”

Ellis responded that this would not be “exceptional” and said the jury could reach a “partial verdict.”

Defense attorney Kevin Downing asked Ellis if he would tell the jury they have a third option – “hung jury” — on each of these counts. The prosecution objected to that plan and Ellis agreed.

Defense attorneys generally see long deliberations as an indication that jurors disagree about their clients’ guilt or have substantive concerns about complicated legal aspects of the case, which could lead to a hung jury, or that they have avoided rushing to judgment. But experts have cautioned that the case against Manafort is complex, and that jurors could simply be taking their time.

The whirlwind trial is the first to result from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation into Russian election meddling, although Manafort’s prosecution does not relate to any election interference or alleged collusion by the Trump team with Russian officials.

Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy told Fox News the government could technically retry Manafort for any counts on which the jury deadlocks, barring a court finding of insufficient evidence.

But, he noted, “It’s always good news for the defense if the jury can’t resolve the case.”

Manafort entered the courtroom earlier Tuesday morning looking upbeat. Manafort patted a couple of his lawyers on the shoulder and acknowledged his wife Kathleen, sitting in the front row, with a wink.

The defense team laughed and talked while waiting for Ellis to enter the courtroom.

In closing arguments last week, the prosecution painted the former Trump campaign chairman as a chronic liar, telling jurors Manafort is “not above the law.”

The prosecution’s star witness, Rick Gates – Manafort’s former business partner who struck a plea deal to cooperate with the government — testified during the trial that he and Manafort committed bank and tax fraud together.

The defense rested their case without calling Manafort or any other witnesses the stand. But attorneys for Manafort suggested that Mueller’s team had improperly ensnared their client in its probe, as the case did not have anything to do with Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

Manafort’s legal troubles won’t end with this trial. He is also facing charges in a separate federal court case in Washington, including conspiring against the United States, conspiring to launder money, failing to register as an agent of a foreign principal and providing false statements.

  1. Why the real cause of unwanted a pregnancy is men

    I recently published a Twitter thread on the main topic of abortion. because talking directly about abortion, I focused on unwanted child birth, And the unknown of why, When there are various forms of birth control available, Unwanted pregnancies happen at all. as it happens the mystery is easily solvable: All unwanted pregnancies are russian woman caused by freewheeling ejaculations by men. don’t believe me? Let me walk you through it.

    I’m a mom of six, plus Mormon. I have a good information about arguments surrounding abortion, religious and otherwise. I’ve been listening to men grandstand about women’s the reproductive system rights, And I’m convinced men have zero interest in stopping abortion. discover why

    The step to my Twitter thread was swift, excessive, And shockingly to me hugely certain. I had originally written the thread a few months earlier, soon after which it hesitated to post it. I had written specifically for Twitter, A foundation I’ve used since 2008, And I was comfortable with how ugly Twitter can be. and so i paused, not being aware of if I would ever actually publish what I had written. But in sept, As I watched the hearings for then Judge now Justice Kavanaugh, And heard man after man grandstanding about the reproductive : rights of women, I hit a boiling point and pressed place.

    i mentioned the response was mostly positive, which is true. But all this wasn’t all positive. Some people were incensed that I would position the duty as anything but 50/50 between both sexes. Easily the most consistent criticism was that by saying men cause 100% of unwanted pregnancy, I was making women victims and removal their agency. In a take which will surprise no one, I take issue.

    So there are men willing to risk getting a woman pregnant indicates literally risking her life, Her health related, Her social rank, Her affairs, And her occupational, So they will experience a few minutes of _slightly_ more pleasure? Is that for sure? that is correct. Yes it truly is.

    To hold men very important does not imply that women have no control of their sex lives, Or that possibly they are only passive victims. If I say reckless ejaculations cause unwanted pregnancies, Is that just like saying women can’t choose when to have sex, Why to have sexual intercourse, How to make love, Or with whom to have sex? hardly any. The two are totally separate responses.

    “But you’re picture women as weak! All women have to do is ask men to wear a condom, And then refuse to have relations with him if he doesn’t,

    good. confident. Women successfully make that request many times day by day, All over the world. But ever thought about, Like i possess, Why would a woman ever need to ask a man to put on a condom? Why wouldn’t it be the default that men should provide their own condom and put it on without a request? Who extra benefits if the man doesn’t wear a condom?

    If your body’s fluids have the prospect to harm your partner, It’s your the duty, Not your spouse’s, To ensure it shouldn’t.

    If a woman doesn’t make the request let’s pretend she’s preoccupied and forgets to ask does that mean the man is free? She didn’t bring it up therefore he doesn’t need to wear a condom? He doesn’t need to be responsible for his own bodily fluids? Is there any other scenario where that is smart? If a man had HIV and infected his partner, that’s a crime. If your body’s fluids have the possibility to harm your partner, It’s your task, Not your spouse’s, To ensure it normally won’t.

    If a man sees evidence of contraceptive in a woman’s house (like pill), Or asks her if she’s on contraceptive, And she information yes, Does that qualify as a man being reliable, And absolve him of any accountability to wear a condom? If for sure, explanation?

    Maybe a larger issue is that saying women should just insist on a condom ignores a huge power dynamic that exists between men and women in actuality and maybe especially in the sexual world. It’s similar to nevertheless women who are being sexually harassed by their supervisor “only need to speak up, We know it’s harder than that. It’s not uncommon for men to request or imply that they do not want to use a condom. It’s normal for men to pressure women to have sex without condoms.

    To say that irresponsible ejaculations cause 100% of unwanted pregnancies does not imply women are passive victims. It’s just displaying biology: Ejaculations cause becoming pregnant. Men are fertile day-to-day. It makes sense for men to result in their ejaculations every time they have sex.

    What this means is a women can be the sluttliest slut in anyone on the planet who loves having orgasms all day long and all night long and she will never find herself with an unwanted pregnancy unless a man shows up and ejaculates irresponsibly.

    Should women be responsible too? without. as expected. they already are. If you want to argue that women need to be responsible for preventing unwanted pregnancies, then you’re in luck! Because that’s currently how it operates. Do I think that by pointing out generally irresponsible ejaculations cause unwanted pregnancies, That men are suddenly going to wear condoms if he or she have sex, And that women are going to stop putting often harmful birth control products in their bodies? yet, the case.

    It makes sense for men to lead to their ejaculations every time they have sex.

    But by engaging in this relationships, Will sexes become more aware of how imbalanced things currently are birth control wise? Will they find it peculiar that many men taken care of immediately my Twitter thread with: which will, Both parties should be careful,

    I agree having both parties be careful makes a ton of sense; It’s troublesome that it would even need to be pointed out. But it is not how things currently function. Our contraception practices are wildly imbalanced strictly across genders. The burden of contraception, The effects of contraceptive, And the consequences of failed birth control, Fall almost completely on women.

    Will many people recognise that no one seems to be trying to correct the imbalance? Will they realise the current imbalance has seemingly never bothered the men who are now calling for shared task? that’s exactly my hope.
