Former Memphis City Schools Board President Tomeka Hart revealed Wednesday that she was the foreperson of the jury that convicted former Trump adviser Roger Stone on obstruction charges last year -- and soon afterward, her history of Democratic activism and a string of her anti-Trump, left-wing social media posts came to light.
Hart even posted specifically about the Stone case before she was selected to sit on the jury, as she retweeted an argument mocking those who considered Stone's dramatic arrest in a predawn raid by a federal tactical team to be excessive force. She also suggested President Trump and his supporters are racist and praised the investigation conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, which ultimately led to Stone's prosecution.
Meanwhile, it emerged that U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson had denied a defense request to strike a potential juror who was Obama-era press official with admitted anti-Trump views -- and whose husband worked at the same Justice Department division that handled the probe leading to Stone's arrest. And, another Stone juror, Seth Cousins, donated to former Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke and other progressive causes, federal election records reviewed by Fox News show.
The revelations came as Trump has called the handling of Stone's prosecution "ridiculous" and a demonstrably unfair "insult to our country." They raised the prospect that Stone's team could again seek a new trial, especially if Hart provided inaccurate responses under oath on her pretrial questionnaires concerning social media activity.
This should disqualify her and demonstrate prosecutorial misconduct... it is almost certain that the Defense challenged her with questions during jury selection... and that she likely lied on her jury questionnaire... that is a basis to move for a mistrial. In fact, it appears that several jurors need to be investigated and a new trial conducted... at government expense.
This type of jury-rigging should result in the disbarment of the prosecutors involved... knowingly and deliberately salting the jury with known biased jurors is stacking a jury and illegal. Where are the Defense attorneys when they are needed? They need to reexamine the Jury and the selection process... for more lies and jury-rigging.
With all the corruption in the DOJ and FBI, how is anyone there not tainted... fire them all.

AG Bar is disgusting... he needs to clean out the DOJ lawyers, at all levels ... appointed and professional civil service. It is obvious that many cases are being thrown... deliberately lost and others brought for the purpose of expanding liberal ideology through the activist courts. I trust none of the existing attorneys or AG Bar... where are the indictments for Hillary, Rosenstein, Wray, McCabe, Comey and a host of others? With all the corruption in the DOJ and FBI, how is anyone there not tainted... fire them all.
All of the key players in both the DOJ and FBI had to know what was going on... they are accessories to the criminal conduct even if all they did was NOTHING... especially if all they did was sit silently while the place burnt down all around them. AG Bar is a joke... he is doing nothing to clean out the swamp... it appears he is cultivating and enlarging the swamp
