A judge in Manhattan ruled a mistrial in the case of a Steve Bannon associate accused of stealing money from the “We Build the Wall” foundation on Tuesday.

The jury was deadlocked, and the members of the jury claimed they couldn’t get past their ideological differences.

The jury could not make a decision after more than 30 hours of deliberation on whether Colorado businessman Timothy Shea was guilty of diverting contributions to the fund from Trump supporters.

The charity’s goal was to generate funds through individual donations to help build a part of the border wall between the US and Mexico.

On Thursday, the jury wrote to the judge, Analisa Torres, to report that a holdout, Roberto, had alleged a “government witch hunt” and other conspiracies during deliberations and was delaying them from reaching a conclusion. Roberto was the only juror who had not reached a decision. According to the notes taken by the jury, he had accused the other 11 members of being liberals from New York who were biased.

In spite of the disagreements, Torres instructed the panel to continue deliberating. However, on Tuesday, the jury announced that they were at a stalemate.

“Judge Torres, in the last few days, we have narrowed our focus to an agreed-upon scope consisting of a few points of contention. We’ve gone to extreme depth in granular detail, building a bottom-up analysis regarding these points. In doing so, it is abundantly clear that we are even further entrenched in our opposing views,” the jury reported.

“We cannot reach a verdict on any of the three counts,” a second note read.

On top of all of this, the judge apparently doxed one of the jurors, (I’m sure it was the one who was holding out). It’s being reported that the judge leaked the name and juror number to the press.

  • So even the judge is proven to be corrupt! What a surprise! The brainwashed liberal could not bully the only sane person on the corrupt jury no doubt put together by a democrat court clerk! Well good for him and the judge should be disbarred!

    • Like i been saying we have been infiltrated in all thre branches of this government it is no joke NO JUGDE SHOULD BE DOING THIS he should be disbarred and disgraced publicly but i digress

  • So, a hung jury, ehh?

    Nope, California hasn’t had enough of their Marxist totalitarian, tyrannical political class yet!

  • I think many are waking up and yes the judge should be disbarred and sent to jail. However that will not happen and unless we all as a UNITED USA join to get rid of this cancer eating us alive it will get worse. We must vote all these corrupt anti American fools out and get back OUR America that stands for, JUSTICE not political so called justice, mortality and true FREEDOM. GBA!

    • The DA and Judge are kicking themselves. How did we slip up and let this free thing patriot on the jury?

  • CONGRESS SHOULD BE CLEANED OUT OF STUPID IGNORANT PEOPLE>LIKE CHENEY >KINZINGER>AND RASKIN>MURPHY> THOMPSON>AND ALL OF THE OTHEWR CRIMINALS THERE>:

  • Thank goodness for Roberto. It’s sad that only one juror got it right. As for the others along with the judge they are all woke!

  • When are these people going to be jailed for their offenses?? Judges are not supposed to be above the law either. And stacking the juries is supposed to be illegal also. Pretty soon no one will be following any laws. When is it going to be enough before honest law abiding people say enough is enough?? Start protesting at these courts like the left does. Start going to their homes just like the left does. They left is not the majority they are just the loudest.

  • This judge should be impeached! Thank the lord for the one sane jouror on this hangmans jourey….
    The sad part is that they will keep trying until they get 12 brainwashed jourors….
