Manafort Found Guilty On Some Charges, Judge Declares Mistrial On Remaining Charges

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was found guilty in federal court on Tuesday of eight out of the 18 criminal counts filed against him.

Manafort was found guilty of five counts of tax fraud, two counts of bank fraud, and one count of “failing to file foreign bank account reports,” CNBC reported.

U.S. District Court Judge T.S. Ellis declared a mistrial on the remaining 10 charges since the jury was not able to come to a consensus.

The charges against Manafort surrounded his work in Ukraine over a decade ago and had nothing to do with his involvement with the Trump campaign.

Manafort, 69, now faces another trial next month in Washington for similar charges.
