Judge in Roger Stone Case Refuses to Recuse Herself

by AmericasKeepersAdmin on February 23, 2020

Roger Stone’s attorney have filed a motion for Judge Amy Berman Jackson to be disqualified from any future proceedings of his case after praising the jurors at his sentencing trial.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson is refusing to recuse herself after making comments that the jurors acted with integrity despite juror misconduct allegation. Jackson sentenced Stone to 40 months in prison at his sentencing trial and will also decide his fate for a retrial if she remains on the case.

Despite reports of jury foreperson, Tomeka Hart, being biased Jackson still went through with sentencing this past week. Tomeka Hart was reported to have intense hostility against the Trump administration and hid her biases from the court. She claimed she could be impartial but through extensive investigation is has become apparent that she was not.

“Stone’s argument for a new trial rests on newly discovered information indicating that there was juror misconduct during Mr. Stone’s trial, thereby depriving him of his constitutional right to be tried by an impartial jury,” 
“It is alleged that a juror misled the Court regarding her ability to be unbiased and fair and the juror attempted to cover up evidence that would directly contradict her false claims of impartiality,” they added. “Whether the subject juror (and perhaps others) served with ‘integrity’ is one of the paramount questions presented in the pending Motion.”

During Stone’s sentencing trial, Judge Amy Berman Jackson stated that the jurors acted with integrity despite the concerns over foreperson, Tomeka Hart.

President Trump has made his views public regarding the Stone case. He has stated at this time he will not be granting clemency and he wants to see how the rest of the proceedings play out.
