The Fix Is In: Roger Stone Judge Defies Motion In Bias Rant, Up Next Cover Up Rigged Jury
To start things off, on Friday Roger Stone filed a motion asking Judge Amy Berman Jackson (an Obama appointee) to recuse herself from the case after she praised the “integrity” of the jury that convicted him. As she announced the 40-month sentence in prison Thursday she praised the jury, despite knowing that one of the members was a partisan hack.
In his motion for recusal, Stone calls out Jackson over what she said during the hearing, “Sure, the defense is free to say: So what? Who cares? But, I’ll say this: Congress cared. The United States Department of Justice and the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia that prosecuted the case and is still prosecuting the case cared. The jurors who served with integrity under difficult circumstances cared. The American people cared. And I care.”
Democrat witness during the House impeachment investigation, Jonathan Turley even agreed that Stone should be granted a new trial.
It certainly seems Hart had no place on the Stone jury. The Supreme Court has repeatedly declared that the “minimal standards of due process” demand “a panel of impartial, indifferent jurors.” Hart’s record suggests little that is impartial or indifferent. She was perfectly within her right to engage in such commentary and protests — but she had no right to sit in judgment of an associate of the president after her public declarations. Her participation raises serious arguments for setting aside the verdict, from the possibility of ineffective counsel to the denial of due process.
The burden now is on Judge Jackson to hold a hearing on this matter and address the possible need for a mistrial. And one thing will be clear: Judge Jackson, in the words of Juror No. 1261, does not “gotta love” any of this.
On Sunday, Stone’s lawyers turned things up to 11 when they filed a motion to disqualify Judge Amy Berman-Jackson from having anything to do with his case.
Roger Stone’s lawyers filed a motion for judicial disqualification so Judge Amy Berman-Jackson won’t oversee any potential retrial
She’s proven her extreme bias time & time again
Not only should she be removed from his case
She should be removed from the bench!

Not three hours after that motion, Obama’s girl, Judge Amy Berman denied the motion and responded in a partisan rant.
Jackson said there was an “absence of any factual or legal support for the motion for disqualification”
• Falsely claimed Stone “was prosecuted for covering up for the President.”
• Praised the “integrity” of the jurors despite knowing the forewoman was biased.

The fix is in, how else is she supposed to cover up her corrupt jury?
