Paul Manafort Trial Update

Updates on the Paul Manafort trial.

Today marks the second day the jury is deliberating in the trial of former President Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.

Yesterday, the jury made a request to Judge Ellis on the meaning of “reasonable doubt.” That is a standard request. Remember, jurors in a trial make important decisions, sometimes that of life and death, and they want to make sure they get it right.

What is reasonable doubt is in reality, a foreign term for jurors, that is why prosecutors usually will say over and over again, not beyond “all” doubt, just beyond “a” reasonable doubt.

The jury also requested the legal requirements to disclose foreign bank accounts.

With it being Friday, one of two things is likely to happen today: one, the jurors may want the weekend to think it over, or, they may decide to day for the same reason they don’t want to push this to Monday.
