1. I don't think that is fair to the juror. We don't know what she saw that caused her to not convict

Manafort. We also don’t know her party affiliation. There have been lots of cases where I wish someone would have been more thoughtful before convicting. It takes a lot of courage to stand up to 11 others and go against them. Would a conviction on all charges been nice, yes, but maybe the prosecution should have made it clearer what a “shell” company was and it would not have happened as it did.

3. I think the OP is talking about Paula Duncan, the juror who voted to convict.

She had an interview on Fox News where she talked about it. She is a Trump supporter but argued that Manafort was 100% guilty on all counts. We haven't heard from the one holdout juror.

You can see Paula's interview here: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/08/23/manafort-juror-reveals-lone-holdout-prevented-mueller-team-from-winning-conviction-on-all-counts.html

She did a good job even if she's a Trump supporter.

I don't know about the holdout but the way Paula characterizes it she was very aloof.

6. Not sure I can judge, I didn't see all the evidence or how it was presented.

4. In a weird way, I identify with her

Today, knowing what I know now, I would vote for a Dan Rostenkowski for President over Pence, Ryan, McConnell, Trump or any RWer that you can name. Someone like Rostenkowski would never hurt children, elderly and sick people the way this bunch of thugs have done and will continue to do. So ... policy does matter, even over issues of character.

I did vote against ONE Democrat in my lifetime, but that Democrat (Tallmadge) was a racist Dixiecrat thug who would have voted for Reagan's agenda 100%, so (my rationalization perhaps) I voted for the Repug who wasn't yet a crook.
