A judge in Virginia on the trial of Paul Manafort called the namesake of US President Donald trump caused confusion, and then a burst of laughter, said to Politico.

Sending the jury to deliberate on verdict in the case of Manafort, the former head of the election headquarters of Donald trump, judge Ti-es Ellis stated that passes to the next case. «Mr. Trump?» — asked the judge in the hall, which was a surprise to the audience. It turned out that the judge was referring to the party of the case, assistant U.S. attorney James trump. When confusion was resolved, in the hall everyone laughed, including the defendant Manafort.

Donald trump has repeatedly spoken about the course of the trial of his former assistant Manafort, saying that the act «unfairly». The American media has repeatedly held assumptions that spectracolor Robert Mueller, filed charges against Manufactu, can «get» to the trump, but to date this has not been confirmed.

Manafort charged with 18 criminal counts of tax evasion and related Bank fraud.
