Manafort found guilty on 8 counts in tax fraud trial

Manafort found guilty on 8 counts in tax fraud trial | 21 Aug 2018 | After nearly four days of deliberation, a jury found former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort guilty on eight counts of financial crimes, marking the first major prosecution won by special counsel Robert Mueller in his investigation of Russian meddling during the 2016 election. Manafort was found guilty on the eight counts of the special counsel's 18-count indictment. Each count carries a hefty prison term -- when combined, he is facing a maximum of 80 years in prison, but at sentencing the total will likely be less. The federal judge declared a mistrial in the other ten counts after jurors could not reach consensus.
