Manafort judge says he’s received threats


Just earlier today the President said of this man: “When you look at what’s going on, I think it’s a very sad day for our country,” he said. “He worked for me for a very short period of time. But you know what, he happens to be a very good person and I think it’s very sad what they’ve done to Paul Manafort.”

‘No verdict yet, but Judge Ellis revealed that he has been threatened, said he doesn’t go anywhere without protection of Marshals, and declined to unseal the names of jurors for their own safety. Added that he didn’t anticipate the level of attention this trial would receive’
