Manafort juror on a potential pardon: 'It would be grave mistake'

Trump former aide Manafort found guilty on eight charges

Prosecutors filed the list for the September 17 trial in DC federal court on Friday night.

Lawyers said former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort's upcoming trial could take as little as two weeks in a recent court filing.

Manafort's trial in the District of Columbia, set to begin September 17, will cover much of the same ground but will scrutinize more closely his political work from 2006 to 2017, during which he allegedly reaped $30 million as a consultant for pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine. He has pleaded not guilty.

Manafort is charged in the second trial with failing to register as a foreign lobbyist, conspiracy to launder money and tampering with witnesses after his indictment.

After nearly four days of deliberations, a 12-member jury on Tuesday found Manafort guilty on two counts of bank fraud, five counts of tax fraud and one charge of failing to disclose foreign bank accounts.

It appears prosecutors may also show the jury emails written in Russian or Ukrainian and may discuss the work of several prominent Washingtonians and businesses around Manafort, including lobbyist Tony Podesta and the law firm Skadden Arps.

Manafort's other lavish purchases - for home improvements, high-end home audio-video equipment and luxury cars - may have an encore at the DC trial as well.

Jurgen Klopp's team is looking to continue their flawless start to the season by adding a third consecutive win on Saturday afternoon when they host Brighton.

A list of all witnesses who might be called was not part of the filing Friday.

The prosecutors will present a case for 10 to 12 days, they said in their filing.

"Should the defendant testify in the upcoming trial, the government intends to offer for objective of impeachment the defendant's prior convictions", prosecutors wrote in the filing, referring to his first case in Virginia, where he was found guilty Tuesday on eight counts out of 18 counts he faced.

Manafort's defense said it had not had time to review the government's exhibits, reserved its objections to all of them and declined to agree to 23 proposed joint "stipulations" of undisputed facts that could be presented to a jury without argument, including some to which both sides agreed in Alexandria. He was found guilty Tuesday of five tax fraud charges, one charge of hiding foreign bank accounts and two counts of bank fraud.

Duncan was one of the 11 jurors who were in favor of convicting Manafort on all 18 counts against him. A judge has ordered Mueller's team to notify the court by next Wednesday if a retrial is planned on the 10 counts in Virginia.

In the Virginia trial, prosecutors had sought to prove that Manafort committed 18 banking and tax crimes.
