Manafort Verdict: No Witch Hunt Here, Mueller Investigation Must Continue

Statement of Robert Weissman, President, Public Citizen

Note: The jury in the Paul Manafort federal trial has found President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman guilty of eight counts of fraud. The jury deadlocked on the remaining 10 charges and Judge T.S. Ellis declared a mistrial.

No witch hunt here.

It’s past time for President Trump to stand down on his attacks on the Mueller investigation and accede to the rule of law.
