I am shocked the jurors are not sequestered in the Manafort trial.

    This trial is not concentrating on Manaforts role in the campaign
    The trial next month will get into more of that

    Don’t count on it

    A mistrial would have been declared before it went to the jury

    Yep, the building is crawling with reporters and likely Russians with wads of cash.
    It's a travesty

    Manifort's charges are more than a "simple" tax issue.

    See: Paul Manafort’s Trial Starts Tuesday. Here Are the Charges and the Stakes.

    and,

    Another trial looms for Manafort and prosecutors have a new set of charges

    I hope these links answer your very appropriate questions.

    Thanks, you're clearly a legal guy, but last time I did jury duty, we checked our phones at the door and picked them up each night on the way out. And that was just a two day trial.

    One of the jurors claimed they WERE threatened.
    The judge also - He's currently under US Marshall protection

    From your second link, I'm sure the press does not know who they are, after all they are allowed to be free as can be. They turn into vapor when they leave the jurors room.LOL.

    On Friday, Ellis denied a motion from media organizations to make public the names of the jurors in the trial, saying he has faced "criticism and threats" and doesn't want the same for jurors. He said that he needed the protection of U.S. Marshals because of his involvement in the trial.

    Jonathan Turley (no lefty - OFTEN defends the Orange Turd) said on Morning Joe today that the evidence in the next trial makes the evidence in this one look scant.
