Manafort’s Judge Is Under Federal Protection After Wave Of Threats

DC:

Judge T.S. Ellis III revealed in open court Friday that he has received death threats relating to his presiding over Paul Manafort’s trial for bank and tax fraud at a federal court in Alexandria, Virginia.

The judge has since retained the protection of the U.S. Marshals Service.

“I have the marshal’s protection,” Ellis said. “I don’t even go to the hotel alone. I won’t even reveal the name of the hotel.”

“I had no idea this case excited this emotion in the public,” he added.

Ellis made the comments after a coalition of news organizations — including The Washington Post, The New York Times, the Associated Press, CNN, NBC, Politico and BuzzFeed — requested the names and addresses of jurors seated for Manafort’s case.  MORE

  1. Wow, should we be really cool to find out where the threats are coming from. Conservatives rarely threaten so I can only imagine.

  3. Brad I would bet 100 iOTW bucks its the left.
    They already are asking for the jury’s names so they can dox them. Antifa will raise hell if they get their names.
    If it gets leaked out they need to charge whoever with the max.
    Odds are Manafort gets off, if not by the jury then the judge.
    Check your phone.

    I called you back brother. I had a GOV inspector at the shop until 5:30 so we could get some parts down the road. They have NO idea what they are looking at, but just the same. It’s the DLA dance. I got some good stuff when we finally hook up.

  9. America is so far down the drain hole that the thugs are getting bolder and bolder. Can’t eat where you want, can’t speak freely, and justice has been the victim of leftist gang raping for so long, it is almost dead.

    But HRC still walks freely, smugly smirking, Obama and his henchmen who doubletimed the insidious destruction of everything American, especially justice, still walk freely, with government pensions.

    The system allows judges to change laws, dictate to the presidentt and allows masked thugs to destroy property, and beat up people and allows Soros to fund it all.

    Good people are pilloried for social ‘crimes’, while the thugs freely shoot up cities, cross borders, train children to be suicide bombers. Then our corrupt to the core FBI and DOJ, tamper with evidence boldly with a bulldozer.

    I’m sick of the RINO GOP enablers. I’m sick of Congress persons calling for attacks This will not stop until America stands up and says enough.

  10. They had better be watching that this low-life “media” doesn’t follow them “home” to find out where they live and what their names are.
