#1 Trying to doxx the jury? Jesus Christ, that's bad even by the extremely low standards I set for the media.

I pity them. If they acquit Manafort, they're going to be torched in the media and possibly in real life as well.

#2 CNN has a well-deserved rep for Doxxing. F*ck them

#3 The left wants a mistrial so they can get a judge who has already decided the case in their favor.

#4 I've sat on a jury where the charges were read from some cryptic law and the judge would not clarify what they meant. It was clear to us the defendant did something wrong but we couldn't tell if it was what she was being charged with. I suspect the Manafort jury is dealing with the same thing.

#5 "I had no idea this case excited this emotion in the public," he added.

I'm not so sure it's the public he needs to worry about.

#6 Only reason anyone outside the case could want this information is to jury tamper. The left is so wound up about imaginary obstruction of justice but is OK with this? Riiiiiight...

#7 I was on a Jury where the defendant sure "looked" guilty...
But when they got down to the evidence: the sole 'witness' was a delivery driver that could be influenced by the store manager that obviously hated the defendant, there was no physical inventory at shift change earlier that morning (was it one carton of shoplifted cigarettes as initially reported and ignored by the police -or- the two(+) that a later count "discovered" and they felt like investigating?), and finally no physical evidence whatsoever (no CCTV Tape, no fingerprints, no cigarettes in the defendant's possession,nada)...

Not Guilty. No trip to the State Pen... Could the Defendant have been a Pusher using the public telephone and a pager to conduct business outside her convenience store...? *Shrug* Could be, but that isn't the charge. The whole experience left me underwhelmed by the local DA.

#8 For the Left being a rich Republican is sufficient evidence to convict; regardless of the actual charges

#9 Like they wouldn't convict a poor Republican, Airandee?

#10 Typical Socialism/Communism. Intimidate any and all who are enemies, and if you have all the power in hand take the short cut and execute them.
