Yup, so throw the case out or refer it (if in fact there is supportable evidence of a crime) to the appropriate bench.
You must feel really embarrassed right now.

Oh, wait - you’re too ignorant to feel embarrassed.

'Paul Manafort trial Day 9: Prosecutors again ask Judge Ellis to correct one of his quips before jury' WP

This judge is losing it. Time to retire Judge Ellis.

Judge Ellis should recuse himself from this case and retire. He is an embarrassment to the judiciary and seems to be heading towards a mistrial.

Do not want to see a mistrial. That would drag things out way too long.

Better than the jury returning a not guilty verdict.
We do not know how much harm Ellis has caused against the prosecution’s case with the jurors.

Manafort Judge to Tell Jury to Ignore His Trial Commentary

Our village idiot’s idea of “adult supervision” is forced to tell the jury to ignore his biased potshots. As if they will be able to do that. F’ing circus.

Manafort may skate over this one, or Trump will pardon him.
I do not see Trump letting Mueller get a victory out of this, not after the way he dealt with Comey, McCabe and now Strzok.

Seems to me Manafort is expecting a pardon.
