The defense in the Paul Manafort case has rested without Manafort taking the stand and without calling any witnesses.

https://www.politico.com/story/2018/08/ ... ses-777160.

Judge T.J. Ellis III rejected a bid by the defense to toss the charges against Manafort.

Closing statements will begin on Wednesday with jury deliberations to follow.

Putting up a defense means cross examination of defense witnesses. The last thing Manafort's lawyers want is more information being uncovered in court under cross examination, than has been already.

Its federal court. We all know Manafort won't spend a week in prison.

But we need to see Mueller's report to know that Trump is unfit for the office.
