Paul Manafort’s lawyers decided to opt out on a defense for their client and instead skip to closing arguments. At first glance this appeared that they were giving in. Now we know they felt they had enough and did not need to risk having their client on the stand.

Mueller’s prosecutors rested their case Monday, day 10 of the bank fraud and tax evasion trial against Paul Manafort playing out in an Alexandria, VA courtroom. The prosecution brought forward 23 witnesses; five of the witnesses testified against Paul Manafort under the protection of immunity. On Tuesday, Paul Manafort’s attorneys opted to skip out on a defense and proceeded to closing arguments instead; the closing arguments began Wednesday morning.

Below is a synopsis on what Manafort’s attorney’s said which shows the law is on Manfort’s side supported by tweets from Techno Fog.
