Judge Ellis Declines Motion by CNN, WaPo to Release Names of Manafort Jurors – Reveals ‘I HAVE BEEN THREATENED’
UNREAL: CNN, Wapo and Buzzfeed are demanding the names and addresses of the Manafort jurors be released to the public.
On Friday, Judge Ellis, a Reagan appointee, revealed he has received threats, however; he did not provide details.
Judge Ellis declined a motion by WaPo, CNN and Buzzfeed to unseal jurors names, reported Courthouse News reporter Brandi Buchman.
THEY WANT THE NAMES SO THEY CAN SEND MOBS TO THEIR HOMES TO INTIMIDATE AND HARASS THEM.
Judge Ellis told the courtroom he has received threats.
“I have the marshal’s protection. I don’t even go to the hotel alone. I won’t even reveal the name of the hotel,” Judge Ellis said.
