Manafort Trial

Some great stuff coming out here .

Starting a couple of days ago, Rick Gate's testimony ( done with 'help' from a plea bargain ) is superbly incriminating against Manafort.
Today the FBI forensic accountant has got her teeth into him and there's plenty of evidence it seems.

Gate lied through his teeth during his pre-trial deposition . It's going to get messy...

Jury still deliberating - decision expected Monday. The evidence must be very complex and extensive when you see what was shown at the beginning of the week. However the defence say the case is not strong enough for them to warrant putting up any witnesses...
Meanwhile the judge has commented that he has received threats and is under protection from US Marshalls.
He's also not going to release the names of jurors ( after the trial ) as requested by the press, as he fears for their safety.

Trump may yet pardon him if there's a guilty verdict.
