After a full day of deliberations, jurors handling Paul Manafort’s tax and bank fraud trial emerged at about 5 p.m. Thursday with a knock on a side door to the courtroom and a note with questions for U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III of the Eastern District of Virginia.

Their inquiries included a technical question related to the allegations that Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman, failed to disclose foreign bank accounts. The jury asked whether one is required to file a disclosure, known as a FBAR, if they lack signatory authority over an account and own less than half its assets, but do have the authority to direct disbursements.
