Thread: Manafort

    This judge seems cray cray in the Manafort trial. They say that this is just his style. I don't know but I don't like it. He's making himself the story by fighting with the prosecution.

    “These people are not making political donations,” the prosecutor said. Calling the donors “oligarchs” — a term Ellis banned the government from using in front of the jury last week — Andres explained that their livelihood was completely dependent on government-granted monopolies.

    “That makes it even clearer to me” that it’s not relevant, the judge interjected. “It doesn’t matter whether they’re good or bad or oligarchs or crooks or mafia or whatever. … You don’t need to throw mud at these people.”
    At that point, Ellis noted that Andres was looking at the lectern. “You’re looking down as if to say, ‘This is B.S.,’” the judge complained.

    Andres seemed angered by the accusation and said the judge was leaping to conclusions. “We don’t do that to you,” the prosecutor said.

    When the judge mentioned an earlier complaint he made about lawyers rolling their eyes, Andres interrupted again and the atmosphere grew tense. “I find it hard to believe I was both looking down and rolling my eyes,” he said.

    Seriously though- I don't understand what his problem is. Nothing going on in this case is even REMOTELY abnormal. I know he has a reputation as being a bit pugnacious, but this is pretty extreme.

    And it's going to seriously call into question the final outcome of the case if he rules in Manafort's favor on anything significant- which seems VERY counterproductive.

    A judge being a judge isn't news.

    The biggest bombshell from this trial so far is that some of Manafort's offshore Cyprus bank accounts were run by Russian GRU spy Konstantin Kilimnik.
