Jurors in the trial of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort on Tuesday asked the judge in his bank and tax fraud trial how to fill out a verdict form for a single count if it cannot come to a consensus on that count.
“If we cannot come to a consensus on a single count, how should we fill out the verdict form for that count?” jurors asked the judge, who read the question aloud in court.
The judge said if they were not able to reach a unanimous conclusion on any count, he would ask them if they could reach a consensus on other counts.

EU and Britain just struck a Brexit deal — here’s what’s in it
"Fair and reasonable." That's how both Britain's Boris Johnson and the EU describe the new draft Brexit deal reached Thursday after days of intense haggling.

Arrangements for the UK province of Northern Ireland were the trickiest part of the new deal, and the core of what has changed since last year's withdrawal agreement, which was rejected by British MPs.
The new protocol stipulates that Northern Ireland remains in Britain's customs territory, but in practice there would be a sort of customs border between the province and the mainland.
Expect exodus of high-ranking Trump officials because they ‘no longer have anything to gain’ by staying: columnist
Writing for the conservative Bulwark, columnist and author Robert Tracinski said Donald Trump's Syria debacle is likely the turning point for even the most hardened of his most avid defenders in the White House who will likely start leaving.
As Tracinski began, "Donald Trump’s betrayal of the Kurds is a moment that might be more important than it seems—one that is likely to have a far-reaching impact that goes well beyond what happens in Syria."
