U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson of the District of Columbia started off a Tuesday hearing on Roger Stone’s bid for a new trial by reading out loud tweets from President Donald Trump alleging juror misconduct in the criminal case and later made a stunning announcement that the majority of the jury that Stone’s lawyers and Trump now claim were tainted were just feet away in the jury room.
Hashtags referencing hip-hop group “Public Enemy” were described on the stand by the foreperson of Stone’s jury, and she was asked to explain emojis she had posted on social media in the early morning hours before the Stone verdict came down. Even one of the prosecutors who withdrew from the case over Main Justice’s interference in the sentencing recommendation briefly took the stand to describe some pretrial interactions between the trial team and Stone’s defense counsel.
