After nearly four days of deliberations, a 12-member jury found Manafort guilty on two counts of bank fraud, five counts of tax fraud and one charge of failing to disclose foreign bank accounts.

"There is no allegation of any wrongdoing against the President in the government's charges against Mr. Cohen", Giuliani said in a written statement.

And 37 percent disapprove of the special counsel's work. Yet on Tuesday he sought to rope Trump into an alleged conspiracy to violate federal campaign finance law.

The trial in Alexandria, Virginia, is the first of two for Manafort.

Investigators also have been examining payments arranged by Cohen in 2016 to women to silence them about claims they had extramarital encounters with Trump. He faces a second trial in Washington next month on charges of lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, money laundering and foreign lobbying.

Ellis denied Manafort's motion, saying that after considering the circumstances carefully and questioning each juror about their ability to be impartial, a mistrial wasn't warranted.

The jury was unanimous on convicting Manafort on all five of the charges against him relating to filing false tax returns from 2010 through 2014.

Duncan also confirmed that one of the other jurors was behind sending the note to the judge asking for the definition of reasonable doubt and that the note was directly related to the holdout juror.

In regards to the prosecution's star witness and Manafort's former business partner, Rick Gates, Duncan said the jury did not find his testimony to be credible.

Ms. Duncan described the four days of deliberation as "emotionally" charged, painting a tense picture of a jury room where tempers flared and others shed tears.

Of course, the jury's failure to reach a verdict on 10 counts does not mean Manafort is innocent of those charges. Did some jurors not believe his, the accountant's and the bankers' stories?

People close to the president said they were not aware of any immediate plans to dismiss Sessions, at least before the November congressional elections. And they couldn't agree on two other charges of bank fraud on loans issued by The Federal Savings Bank, an institution headed by a Trump supporter who was seeking a job in the administration. Perhaps jurors divided over the same question.

The verdict here does not mark the end of Manafort's legal troubles.

Doing so would require abandoning his support for former aides like Paul Manafort, Trump's ex-campaign chairman convicted Tuesday on tax and bank fraud charges.

Manafort, 69, has been in jail since June after his bail was revoked following new charges of witness tampering against him.


Paul Manafort was convicted Tuesday on eight criminal counts.

While the evidence was strong, the case was focused on Manafort's dealings separate to the 2016 campaign and not directly related to Russian Federation.

Truly, he needed to go two-for-two with acquittals in his criminal cases. In fact, prosecutors could choose to re-try Manafort on those counts if they wished.

So far, no jurors have spoken to the media and their names were not made public so it is unclear how they determined their verdict.

Manafort's not done in court by a long shot.

The defense team also could appeal the case at a later date.

Manafort's defense team moved for a mistrial during sealed proceedings, citing juror comments.

His attorney Kevin Downing stood behind him. "However, he would like to thank Judge Ellis for granting him a fair trial". But the authorities are said to be looking into whether Cohen properly reported the income from the medallions to the IRS, particularly income that was earned in cash. That suggests Manafort's lawyers weren't ineffective, as viewed by the judge, as some defendants attempt to claim following their convictions.

On the right hand side of the form, which the jurors filled out during their deliberations, the jury wrote "No Consensus" and "G to N, 11 to 1" next to the 10 counts that hung, the form released Thursday shows. An FBI raid on Cohen's NY office and hotel room in April rattled the president, who has complained publicly about what he felt was government overreach while privately worrying about what material Cohen may have had after working for the Trump Organization for a decade.

Manafort could simply be sentenced.

"We'll see whether the level of corruption alleged concerning the Trump Foundation is a topic of concern for the NY attorney general", Davis said, adding that the President's pardon power would not apply to state charges brought in NY.

Trump has raged to aides for several weeks that he is often mentioned in connection with the Manafort case and that he shouldn't be.

Lanny Davis, the attorney representing President Donald Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen, said Tuesday his client has information on Trump that would interest special counsel Robert Mueller in his investigation. "He was with Ronald Reagan". "Doesn't involve me, but I still feel, you know, it's a very sad thing that happened".

"This has nothing to do with Russian collusion", Trump said.
