Contrary to my prediction, Paul Manafort was convicted today of 8 of the 18 counts against him. This is one case where I'm very happy to have been wrong. Perhaps there is hope for the U.S. after all.
[UPDATE:] I was less wrong than I thought. Turns out a single hold-out juror prevented conviction on all counts.
Meanwhile, Donald Trump is mulling over a pardon. The Manafort story isn't over yet.
