8 experts on why the Paul Manafort jury doesn’t have a verdict yet — and what it might mean

By Emily Stewart “You could speculate that there's some dynamic involving a holdout, but the better fit with the facts is that they're just moving through methodically.” If it feels like the jury in Paul Mafort's trial is taking forever to reach a verdict, actually, it's not. This is how long you'd expect them to take, despite the defense's claims that extended deliberations and the jury's questions are a good sign. Jurors headed home on Friday (they weren't sequestered) without reaching a verdict after two days of deliberations, frustrating onlookers eager for answers in the highest-profile development yet in special ...

“Truth isn’t truth”: Rudy Giuliani offers a new explanation of why Trump shouldn’t talk to Mueller

By Emily Stewart Chuck Todd's response: “This is going to become a bad meme.” Rudy Giuliani offered up a new explanation for why President Donald Trump's legal team is hesitant for him to talk with special counsel Robert Mueller in the Russia investigation: Trump could perjure himself because “truth isn't truth.” The assertion is perhaps one of the more comical attempts the Trump team has made to attack and undercut the Russia probe and explain their bending relationship with the truth, alongside “alternative facts” from Kellyanne Conway and “what you're seeing and what you're reading is not what's happening” from ...

By dsamuelsohn@politico.com (Darren Samuelsohn) President Donald Trump is claiming his White House lawyer, Don McGahn, was representing his interests and following his orders when he voluntarily testified before the special counsel in multiple sessions.And former administration officials said it's unlikely that McGahn would still be serving in his top position in the administration if he had actually shared incriminating information about the president with Robert Mueller's team. “I can't imagine that McGahn would still be White House counsel if he had produced any damaging information,” said Mark Corallo, a former spokesman for the president's legal team. “He'd have resigned.”But the ...
