Trump Threatens Law Suit, Calls for Roger Stone Case to be DISMISSED

(PoliticalLookout.com) – President Donald Trump is reaching the end of his tether over the ongoing Roger Stone case. In several tweets sent on Tuesday morning, the president suggested that his former campaign advisor Roger Stone should have his case dropped as a result of bias.

Last week, after the Department of Justice dropped its recommendations of a nine-year sentence for Stone, four prosecutors working on the case walked away. Stone’s defense team argues that the sentence initially proposed was more suitable for violent criminals, and not from somebody who failed to provide the right information during the Robert Mueller Russia investigation.

Following the DOJ’s recommendation to reduce the sentence, a request for a retrial was filed after it was revealed a member of the jury held political bias against the President and even ran in a Democratic congressional primary.

Tomeka Hart, the foreperson in the jury that already convicted Stone, was revealed to have a history of posting anti-Trump comments on her social media. Fox News reported that Hart had even posted about the Stone case before she was asked to sit on the jury. She had even compared the president to the Ku Klux Klan and called his supporters racists. Despite this, she was allowed to stay on the jury.

President Trump has repeatedly criticized the judge overseeing the case, Judge Amy Berman Jackson, and has now called for her to dismiss the case in its entirety.

After seeing the extreme nature of the anti-Republican and anti-Stone bias in the jury, the president quoted comments made by Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Andrew Napolitano and concluded that it’s time Stone, at least, got a new trial.

After quoting Napolitano, Trump went on to say, “These were Mueller prosecutors, and the whole Mueller investigation was illegally set up based on a phoney and now fully discredited Fake Dossier, lying and forging documents to the FISA Court, and many other things. Everything having to do with this fraudulent investigation is badly tainted and, in my opinion, should be thrown out,” he wrote.

He even ended by saying, “If I wasn’t President, I’d be suing everyone all over the place,” before stating, “BUT MAYBE I STILL WILL.”

If Trump’s recommendation isn’t heard, Judge Jackson will hear the case from the Justice Department and Stone’s defense team before deciding to initiate a retrial.
