Harmeet Dhillon Appears on ‘Fox News @Night’ To Discuss the Manafort Conviction
According to Dhillon:
It’s fascinating to hear what the jurors are focused on and it’s usually not what the lawyers think. For example, noticing people are cat napping – kind of reminds us lawyers we have to be on alert and on our best behavior at all times. The jury really is paying attention. I found it fascinating. I thought it was great she shared with people what the thought process was and that she’s not afraid. It gives me a lot of hope for our democracy.
There was a lot of documentary evidence here. I think that if I were the prosecution, I would probably be focusing on the other trial and seeing if they can leverage a settlement plea from manafort there. Rather than feeding the dead horse here. They’ve already got him on dozens of years of potential sentencing. I am not sure it’s a great use of taxpayer resources.
