This post may be overtaken by events before it is even online, but I cannot resist. The jury in the Paul Manafort trial has just sent a tantalizingly ambiguous note to the judge. They ask, if we cannot reach agreement on a single count [of the eighteen], how shall we fill out the jury response form?
This could mean: we have agreed on 17 counts, but are at odds on the 18th – which would almost certainly be good news for the prosecution.
Or it could mean: we have not agreed on a single count, not one. Which would be spectacular news for the defense.
