No verdict in Manafort trial

The jury in the financial fraud trial of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has finished its third day of deliberations without reaching a verdict.

Jurors deliberated until 6:15 p.m. Monday, later than usual, before being dismissed for the day.

They'll resume Tuesday morning.

Federal prosecutors allege Manafort hid tens of millions of dollars in foreign income. They also say he lied on loan applications to obtain millions more to maintain a lavish lifestyle.

Manafort's attorneys didn't call witnesses in his defence, claiming the prosecution failed to meet its burden of proof. His attorneys attacked the credibility of a key witness, one-time Manafort protege Rick Gates.

The trial is the first courtroom test of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe, though the case doesn't involve allegations of Russian election interference.
