Manafort Jury Signals Lack of Agreement on One Count

The jury in the Manafort case has sent a note to the judge asking for guidance about the lack of agreement on one count.  The obvious implication is that they are unanimous in their decision about 17 of the 18 criminal counts.  The judge is urging the jury to take their time and reach a unanimous decision if possible. The question that may arise is whether double jeopardy applies to a charge that is not decided.  The answer is that double jeopardy does NOT apply if the jury is hung and unable to decide.  Thus if one count is not determined by a unanimous verdict, it is possible that the remaining criminal count could be added to the second federal trial and that matter could be considered by another jury.

  1. One would expect rumpt to resign today due to the overwhelming evidence against him. He is doomed. It is worst than the Nixon scandal. The Senate and House should begin Impeachment proceedings today. Trump has embarrassed and shamed America. He is a disgrace. The Republican party is a disgrace for allowing this monster to continue this fraud and treason against America.
