Tuesday morning - Day 4 of deliberation - Reporters Covering Manafort's bank and tax fraud trial began to hyperventilate with word the jury had handed Judge T.S. Ellis a note asking, "if we can not come to a consensus on a single count" against President Donald Trump's former campaign manager, how should they fill in the verdict form. She also claims at times the prosecution seemed uninterested in the proceedings.

Duncan told Fox News that she supports the president but documentary evidence against Manafort in the 16-day trial had proved overwhelming.

If Trump chose to pardon Manafort in an attempt to stop the former campaign chairman from cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 election, Griffin said, that action could be an example of obstruction of justice.

The judge said she raised concerns about another woman who allegedly said of the defense: " 'They didn't - they couldn't have much to present.' And I reminded her that we have not heard from everyone in this case", the juror said, according to the transcript.

Wow, that's not the way you want the jury thinking about you.

"The evidence and the paper trail was there regardless of what Rick Gates said", Duncan said.

Rudy Giuliani said he advised President Donald Trump against considering granting Paul Manafort a pardon until at least after special counsel Robert Mueller has concluded his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election.

Trump also said the stock market would crash if he were impeached and attacked Cohen for "flipping" on him. "So we agreed to throw out his testimony and look at the paperwork, which his name was all over", Duncan said.

"I think that they used Manafort to try to get the dirt on Trump or hoping that he would flip on Trump", she said.

Paul Manafort, former campaign chairman for President Trump, leaves a federal courthouse in Washington in April. She said to Hannity that Trump told her he would consider a pardon.

These charges against Manafort came to light during the course of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the possibility that members of Trump's team colluded with Russians.

"To date, all of the charges against Cohen and Manafort are federal offenses but that does not preclude state authorities from bringing subsequent charges to the extent the wrongdoing constitutes a crime under state law", Griffin said. Those types of discussions should not be held until the jury gets the case.

In his tweets, Trump sought to contrast Manafort's posture with that of Michael Cohen, the president's former attorney and fixer, who on Tuesday entered a guilty plea in a Manhattan federal court on eight counts.

General Michael Flynn, Trump's top adviser on national security and a prominent campaign surrogate, has pled guilty to felony charges of lying to the FBI and is cooperating with the Mueller investigation. Trump called Earhardt "a truly great person" while tweeting a promotion of her book in May. "Over the last two to three weeks, he's expressed anger and frustration about how he's been treated".
