President Donald Trump earlier in the day called his former campaign manager Paul Manafort a "good person," and said his trial "is very sad." Trump is still being investigated by special counsel Robert Mueller, who brought charges against Manafort.
Judge T.S. Ellis said at a hearing in Manafort's case that he will not release the names of jurors deliberating Manafort's fate because he is worried about their safety. Manafort is being prosecuted by special counsel Robert Mueller's team.
Trump told reporters on Friday that he expected to "quickly" remove the security clearance of Bruce Ohr, a Justice Department official with ties to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The president tells The Wall Street Journal he believes Brennan is among those responsible for the special counsel's probe into Russian attacks on the 2016 election and potential conspiracy between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign.
In a tweet shortly before his appearance on MSNBC, Brennan alleged that Trump's actions are "part of a broader effort" to "suppress freedom of speech & punish critics."

President Donald Trump launched attack after attack on Twitter against former advisor Omarosa Manigault Newman and special counsel Robert Mueller, among others.
Omarosa revealed later on Tuesday that she has been interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller.

The president's tweet came the morning after Manigault Newman told MSNBC's Chris Matthews she would cooperate with Robert Mueller if she is contacted again, seemingly confirming that she has been in touch with the special counsel's office.
