A jury found former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort guilty Tuesday on tax- and bank-fraud charges — a major if not complete victory for special counsel Robert S. Mueller III as he continues to investigate the president’s associates.

The jury convicted Manafort on eight of the 18 counts against him and said it was deadlocked on the other 10. U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III declared a mistrial on those charges.

Wearing a black suit, Manafort stood impassively, his hands folded in front of him, and showed little reaction as the clerk read the word “guilty” eight times. As through most of the three-week trial in Alexandria, Va., Manafort, 69, showed no emotion as he looked at the six women and six men who convicted him.

President Trump reacted to the verdict by denouncing Mueller’s investigation.

I’m so upset these trials aren’t live-streamed.

IKR. This is amusing. Trump has repeatedly declined to discuss whether he might pardon Manafort.

Usually after something like this, Trump would go on a Twitter rampage.
