The jury in the trial against President Donald Trump's former campaign chair Paul Manafort has found the defendant guilty on eight of the charges against him Tuesday. Judge T.S. Ellis is declaring a mistrial on the remaining 10 counts, however, on which the jury remained deadlocked.

Judge T.S. Ellis has said that he could accept a partial verdict in this case. Manafort was found guilty on charges of bank fraud, tax fraud, and of hiding a foreign bank account.

After receiving the update from the jury, Ellis said that he will speak directly with each juror in the case.

There remains another trial against Manafort on an entirely separate set of counts in Washington, D.C.

At nearly the same time as the verdict was revealed, Trump's former attorney and fixer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty charges in Manhattan.
