Roger Stone attorney asks jury foreperson about her social media posts; What's with the fist-bump emoji?

Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From “Roger Stone attorney asks jury foreperson about her social media posts; What's with the fist-bump emoji?”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Politico senior reporter Darren Samuelsohn live-tweeted the Roger Stone hearings Tuesday from a federal courthouse in Washington. As you probably heard, the jury foreperson outed herself on Facebook after the entire prosecutorial team left the case in protest of new sentencing guidelines, saying she “couldn’t keep quiet any longer.” That led CNN to publish her name, and it wasn’t long before people were combing through her social media posts, and there sure was a lot of anti-Trump material in there for someone who promised she could be an impartial juror. President Trump even tweeted about it:

Now it looks like the fore person in the jury, in the Roger Stone case, had significant bias. Add that to everything else, and this is not looking good for the “Justice” Department. @foxandfriends @FoxNews

The jury foreman in Roger Stone’s case was a left-wing Russia collusion hoax truther who posted anti-Trump propaganda on social media *during the trial* and previously ran for office as a Democrat. The judge in the case gagged Stone, but not the jury.

Stone’s attorneys have made a motion for there to be a new trial, and the judge heard arguments Tuesday. We won’t publish the entire thread (it was a long day), but we’ll make sure to get the best bits in here:

Good rainy morning from the federal courthouse in Washington. A couple cable TV cameras are on stakeout for the Roger Stone hearings on his motion for a new trial. Things get started at 1:30 pm before Judge Jackson – a public hearing on whether the 2 pm hearing should be open.
