    It's probably going to be impossible for the jurors not to find out about this and not be intimidated by it. With all the hate and violence the left is capable of, coming up with the wrong verdict can be somewhat dangerous for these jurors.

    Wouldn't that violate the secrecy that jurors are normally entitled to? Do these liberals even know what country they're in anymore?(And yes, it's revealed as fact that almost every media corporation is liberal by nature.)

    A bit late here, I think.

    They were trying to wrap it today!

    Uh, yes, liberals know they live in the USA! For instance, jurors aren't "entitled to secrecy".

    It's the Republicans and Trump who want secret juries, a muzzled free press, and controlled speech!

    You guys want to move to Russia, is about 5000 miles east!

    Republican "facts" are NOT! :lol:

    OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE, as the Fake News seeks to "OUT" the jury for not immediately convicting Manafort....and subjecting them to CERTAIN PUBLIC ABUSE/ATTACKS by the TDs left...

    CNN wants to give them gifts or publish their addresses so their minions will come and get them depending on the verdict.

    And it's the Stalinist left seeking to INTIMIDATE the jury, and the judge knows it. He has already been threatened himself, and is under US Marshalls protection....

    They are hoping all the jurors are white so they can claim racism.

    It's really that simple.

    That's unnerving. I wonder if a juror could sue a media outlet if they're attacked due to their loss of anonymity.

    You mean the judge who has been tearing a new butt of the prosecution is supposedly now biased AGAINST Manafort???

    And even further, you propose that even the judge HIMSELF is supposed to be secret from the jury? Or tge other way around?


    Are Trumpies getting as confused as Trump?

    Jury intimidation plain and simple. It’s beginning to look like some jurors are leaning toward acquittal and CNN/WALO want them to know that they will be hounded in the press if they don’t ‘get their heads on straight’ and vote guilty.......the coup continues

    Wow, what a smoldering pile of BS.

    There is no universal right for the names and addresses of jurors to be disclosed. In fact, in a number of states, their right to anonymity is protected, and can only be breached if due cause is presented and accepted by the court.

    https://corporate.findlaw.com/law-l...f-access-to-juror-information-loses-more.html

    Courts and legislatures in at least eight states have considered measures that would limit the disclosure of jurors. names and addresses or would increase the use of anonymous juries. For example, a Texas statute prohibits counsel and court personnel from disclosing personal information regarding jurors, including their names and addresses, that is obtained during a criminal trial. [Tex. Code Crim. Proc. Ann. § 35.29.] In California, the identities of the jurors must be sealed at the close of a criminal trial and are released upon an affirmative showing of good cause and where the individual jurors do not object to the disclosure of their identities. [Cal. Civ. Proc. Code §237(a)(1), (b).] In Wisconsin, a proposed rule of procedure would have kept private all personal information about jurors in both civil and criminal cases, but the Wisconsin Supreme Court rejected the rule.
    I could go on, but the nature of your post makes it rather pointless.

    Love it when alt-left attack dogs prove why they are viewed by everyday Americans they way they are.

    If it is true then it is a stupid thing. If this is true they should wait until the verdict is in and then if the jousts do not want to be identified they should have that right.

    CNN has turned into such a steaming pile of ****. It's not wonder liberals lap the puke produced at that vomit factory up.

    The goal here is to scare those jurors. The Left has taken over the Mainstream Media, Education, Bureaucracies, and they use those institutions to push / force their agenda where they can.

    If a jury member is reading the Federalist then they should be disqualified.

    It's common. In fact juries of these type are public info unless the judge says otherwise. In a popular case like this it is usually kept secret and no one cares in an unpopular case.

    Wow, that thread title is truly Fake News, if the rest of the article is true...

    Somehow they go from

    "In a motion filed in federal court on Thursday, CNN and several other media outlets requested that the court release the names and home addresses of all jurors in the Paul Manafort fraud case."

    To

    "CNN Just Sued The Government"

    LOL... Talk about Click Bait... and many of you have fallen for it... Oh Well.... Interneters gonna Internet...

    Lol...CNN is reporting the story about the media asking for the names of the jurors but they don't list themselves as one of the media outlets asking for the names.

    The left wing media is heavily invested in Mueller and is pulling for him to take down Trump, and losing this case damages Mueller's credibility while gaining nothing if he wins. So media is going to intimidate the jurors into giving the media the verdict they want.
