According to Reuters, the judge presiding over Paul Manafort's first trial expressed contrition to the jurors at the request of the prosecution. Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team requested that US District Judge T.S. Ellis issue a 'curative instruction' to the jury for comments he made earlier in the trial. Throughout the trial's proceedings, federal prosecutors have requested that witnesses be allowed in the courtroom before their testimony, including case agents and experts. Although Judge Ellis does not like having potential witnesses listening to the trial's proceedings, he approved each request. But on the trial's seventh day, Judge Ellis screamed at the prosecution in front of the jury to never do so again. A day later, prosecutions filed a request for the judge to correct his previous comments. During the trial's eighth day, Ellis stated he may have made a mistake.
