"They go where I go", the judge said.
Earlier Friday, Ellis denied a request from multiple media organizations to reveal the jurors' names and addresses, saying he himself had been threatened during the proceedings of the trial. "I imagine they would, too", he said when explaining why he doesn't intend to make jurors' names public at the end of the trial.
Eastern time that they be allowed to leave so one of them could attend "an event", Judge T.S. Ellis III said.
Judge Ellis said he also plans to release the transcripts of bench conferences now sealed by the court with one exception - likely a discussion which relates to information from Mr Mueller's investigators about its ongoing investigation.
Here's the thing: This Manafort trial - as Trump likes to remind anyone who asks - has zero to do with the time he spent as the head of Trump's 2016 campaign.
Prosecutors accused him of hiding from USA tax authorities $16 million in money he earned as a political consultant for pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine. The case which being tried right now, of course, is the one pending in the Eastern District of Virginia in which Manafort faces eighteen separate counts of bank and tax fraud related to his efforts to hide income earned from his lobbying for overseas clients such as the former pro-Russian government in Ukraine, Turkey, and other foreign actors.

"I think the whole Manafort trial is very sad", Trump told reporters in White House before departing for fundraising events in NY. But she also warned that any pardon from Trump could potentially be part of a case against him for obstruction of justice.
Manafort's trial in federal court in Alexandria is the first stemming from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's 15-month-old investigation of Russia's role in the 2016 USA election.
But Manafort's fate was far from clear.
The jurors' questions suggest they are quickly diving into the weeds of the sometimes complex tax laws at issue in the case. It exposed details about the lavish lifestyle of the onetime political insider, including a $15,000 jacket made of ostrich leather and $900,000 spent at a boutique retailer in NY via global wire transfer.
The questions came after roughly seven hours of deliberation, delivered in a handwritten note to Ellis. In the United States legal system, juries are required to find a defendant guilty of a crime "beyond a reasonable doubt". The defense team asked the judge on Thursday to push that deadline back.
The fact that Manafort faces a second trial is entirely of his own choosing.
Defense attorney Richard Westling said Manafort became the special counsel's victim in a "selective process of pulling" his financial records to concoct a narrative of an "elaborate fraud scheme".
