Manafort Convicted on 8 Counts; Mistrial Declared on 10 Others

Another oneย bites the dust:

A jury has found former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort guilty after a three-week trial on tax and bank fraud charges โ€” a major if not complete victory for special counsel Robert S. Mueller III as he continues to investigate the presidentโ€™s associates.

The jury convicted Manafort on eight of the 18 counts against him. The jury said it was deadlocked on the other 10. U.S. District Court Judge T.S. Ellis declared a mistrial on those other charges.

Manafort was convicted on five counts of filing false tax returns, one count of not filing a required IRS form, and two bank fraud counts.
