U.S. judge encourages Manafort jury to reach unanimous consensus

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Aug 21 (Reuters) - The federal judge in the bank and tax fraud trial of former Donald Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort instructed the jury to continue deliberations and try to reach consensus on all 18 counts against the political consultant.
