Reporter's Notebook: Excitement in Manafort trial courtroom as jury deliberates

After deliberating for more than eight hours Monday, and having considered the fate of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort for approximately 22 hours in total, the jurors entered the ninth-floor courtroom in Alexandria, Va. at 6:12 p.m.

Just before 6 p.m., the court security officer had gone to the jury room and brought out a stack of papers, putting them on the deputy clerk's desk.

Shortly before 4:30 ET, the court security officer entered the courtroom and walked to Judge Ellis' chambers before waiting outside for some minutes, leaning against the wall.

At approximately 4:50, Judge Ellis said the jurors had asked to extend their deliberations until 6:15, the first time the panel had asked for an extension since receiving the case Thursday.

One bench conference included the court security officer, who is in charge of jurors and logistics.
