President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort may not learn for several weeks if he’ll have to face off against U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller in a third trial. Mueller is seeking more time to decide whether to retry Manafort on 10 counts that a Virginia jury deadlocked over last week.
Facing a Wednesday deadline to make a decision, Mueller told U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III that his team didn’t have enough information to make that call because Manafort’s lawyers hadn’t filed their post-trial motions. Manafort doesn’t object to the delay, Mueller said. The judge didn’t immediately rule on the request.
