It looks like the left has lost all respect for even themselves.
Crime and violence continue to swarm in like wasps as the unhinged left pushes their agenda.
Every day, the liberal lunatics continue to give American voters more and more reasons to say goodbye and #WalkAway from the Democratic Party.
Judge Ellis is known for his hard shell and prickly personality and has attracted a large amount of attention during this Manafort trial.
He frequently flys with attorneys, especially the ones on Special Counsel Mueller’s team.
And now because of his actions, the judge in Manafort’s case has been threatened. He has revealed this week that he is afraid to travel alone and keeps a U.S. Marshal at his side for protection.
If this information was to be made public, the U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III has already rejected the motion and is confident the jurors would be threatened as well.
“I can tell you there have been [threats]. … I don’t feel right if I release their names,” he said, adding that because of threats against him, “The Marshals go where I go.”
This breaking news came after the jury finished its second day of deliberations with no verdict and is planning to continue next week.
Earlier Friday morning, Ellis acknowledged facing pushback about how he’s handled this case. He told attorneys “I’m no stranger to criticism,” but said “this case has brought it to a new level.”
The juror motion itself was filed by multiple news organizations – the Washington Post, New York Times, AP, CNN, NBC, Politico and BuzzFeed. They sought to unseal records in the case, including information about the jurors.
Rejecting the request about the jury, Ellis said “to [grant it] would create a risk of harm to them.”
The judge also denied a motion to unseal all the bench conferences and sidebars, which have been sealed. Ellis said all that will be released to the public at the end of the trial.
After a trial spanning nearly three weeks, Manafort, 69, is awaiting a verdict on 18 tax evasion and bank fraud charges.
