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

    LOL, this response ^^^ and its attack on HRC is off topic and an effort to derail the facts detailed in the two indictments of Manifort.

    The "Uranium One Scandal" is another fraud in line with all of the efforts to assassinate the character of The Clinton's: ethically evil and always a failure.

    No, Uranium One investigation has not led to an indictment

    Mistrials can occur for many reasons:

    · death of a juror or attorney

    · an impropriety in the drawing of the jury discovered during the trial

    · a fundamental error prejudicial (unfair) to the defendant that cannot be cured by appropriate instructions to the jury (such as the inclusion of highly improper remarks in the prosecutor's summation)

    · juror misconduct (e.g., having contacts with one of the parties, considering evidence not presented in the trial, conducting an independent investigation of the matter)

    · the jury's inability to reach a verdict because it is hopelessly deadlocked.

    It would really be interesting to know what the threats were about and from whose supporters, although anyone mad enough to threaten anyone over this is a nutcase anyway.

    Manafort should have taken a deal

    But Trump will declare he was unfairly tried and pardon him

    If he does prior to the next trial which has a ton more to do with Russia, there will be hell to pay.
    Take it to the bank.

    She's more of a Hobbit, different continuity.

    Possible but not probable IMHO OL. Crooked Paul was there during a pretty Russia intense 5 months of the campaign.
    And he and Trump have a butt-ton of common Russian Mafia and other shady connections.
