    Trump says so many absolutely insane stuff that it's all become noise. If any other previous president (or 1st world head of state for that matter) said something similar it would be met with universal condemnation.

    I don't think he actually CAN do that, he'd be jumping into a legal minefield, but even so, only dictators and leaders of banana republics make statements so bold.

    This is my favorite lesson on Truth. Where the word 'Son' appears, it refers to all of us, all creation, not just the Jesus of the Bible.

    Shouldn't it have already been explicitly directed by the Judge that each count is technically separate from the other? If you can't agree on a few counts you find him guilty of 12 of 18, for example.

    The directions he gave was for all charges to be guilty or not guilty. The jury just asked him to modify that, he denied it. There is one charge out of the 18 they can't decide on.

    They can reach a partial verdict, but I think the judge wants them to try a little longer to come to consensus before opening up that option.

    I have a bit of a problem with the Judge's response and feel he is being purposefully vague. Based on his response, I believe the jury could understand his comments as stating all 18 counts must be the same verdict.

    Ohh Jesus Christ. This judge is trying to sabotage the verdict. You don’t have to have a unanimous decisions on each count.

    @LVG CNN just said Judge issued a “Sawyers Charge” to the Jury. Is this common? Why would he do this in ight of earlier statements in the day...especially if it is only 1 or 2 of the 18 charges?

    My understanding is that an Allen charge is common when a jury returns deadlocked.

    A judge issues one because you don't want to have to do another trial.

    Guilty on 8 counts, mistrials on the other 10.
