A key juror from Roger Stone’s trial was questioned in court on Tuesday over allegations that she prejudiced the jury that convicted the longtime GOP political operative, with the juror also facing public attacks from President Trump on Twitter.
In a lengthy hearing in a court in Washington, D.C., Judge Amy Berman Jackson brought in the juror, Tomeka Hart, to respond to accusations that she provided misleading answers about her political bias — a claim Stone says justifies a new trial.
The article goes on to state the following:
Hart said she stood by the answers she gave during jury selection, when she said she could fairly act as a juror in the case. She said in a written questionnaire at the time that she did not remember ever posting about Stone or any other figures involved in the case.
The report states that Judge Jackson, an Obama appointee, declared that there was little evidence to show Hart had acted improperly, and her personal political beliefs couldn’t be used as grounds for a new trial.
“Posts about the president do not constitute bias against the defendant. Having an opinion about the president on some or all of his policies does not mean she can not fairly judge evidence against Roger Stone,” Jackson reportedly announced at the hearing on Tuesday.
Roger Stone Lead Juror, Tomeka Hart discovered to be a Democratic operative and former Congressional Candidate.
