3rd Day of Deliberations for Manafort 08/20 06:08 ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) -- Jury deliberations are expected to resume in the financial fraud trial of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. Monday marks the third day that jurors ponder the 18-count indictment. Federal prosecutors in the trial in Alexandria, Virginia, allege that Manafort hid tens of millions of dollars in foreign income. They also say he lied on loan applications to obtain millions more to maintain a lavish lifestyle. Manafort's attorneys didn't call witnesses in his defense, claiming the prosecution had failed to meet its burden of proof. His attorneys attacked the credibility of a key witness, one-time Manafort protege Rick Gates. The trial is the first courtroom test of the Russia probe led by special counsel Robert Mueller, though the case doesn't involve allegations of Russian election interference. (KA)
