In any normal case a juror with this kind of history would never be picked but when it has to do with the Trump Administration liberals like to stack their own deck. If this was any other type of case there is no way in hell this juror would have been picked.
The juror that has been identified as Tomeka Hart is a former democratic congressional candidate whose public social media accounts are stacked with anti-Trump posts and news articles critical of the President. Hart revealed her role as a member of the jury in a Facebook post supporting the four Mueller holdover prosecutors that just withdrew from the case.
“I have kept my silence for months. Initially, it was for my safety. Then, I decided to remain silent out of fear of politicizing the matter,” Hart wrote on Facebook, adding: “But I can’t keep quiet any longer.”
CNN first reported Hart’s post and her role however, never mentioned that she was a Democrat or that she had run for Congress as a Democrat. Her social media accounts show how rolled the special counsel’s investigation.
Her twitter account shows multiple references to Trump and negative stories about Republicans. In a Twitter post on Aug. 19, 2017, Hart quoted a tweet referring to Trump as the “#KlanPresident,” in an apparent reference to the KKK.
We are using screenshots because throughout the day she has been deleting her posts.
She also retweeted a post from CNN analyst Bakari Sellers that attacked people defending Roger Stone who was upset over the way he was arrested.
Stone was indicted on January 24, 2019, and argued that he would not get a fair trial in Washington DC due to the left-leaning populace, which looks like he was right. On November 15, 2019, Stone was convicted on five counts of making false statements to Congress, one obstruction of justice charge, and a witness tampering charge.
“I want to stand up for Aaron Zelinsky [Mueller’s lead investigator], Adam Jed, Michael Marando, and Jonathan Kravis — the prosecutors on the Roger Stone trial,” Hart wrote in her post, referring to the four prosecutors who resigned from the Stone case.
It looks like Roger Stone was right, he didn’t get a fair trial and it appears that his case could be moving to a mistrial.
Hart deleted her initial Facebook post however, a local Memphis paper posted it before it was deleted. Below is her entire post.
I have kept my silence for months. Initially, it was for my safety. Then, I decided to remain silent out of fear of politicizing the matter.
But I can’t keep quiet any longer.
I want to stand up for Aaron Zelinsky, Adam Jed, Michael Marando, and Jonathan Kravis–the prosecutors on the Roger Stone trial who have all resigned from the case in response to the DOJ’s interference with their sentencing recommendation.
I’m standing up for them now because I was a juror on the case. In fact, I was the foreperson.
I am sharing the November 22, 2019 op-ed of Seth Cousins, another juror–and not just because he said this: ‘My favorite person on the jury was an African American woman from Tennessee.’
Seth perfectly articulated my sentiments. I couldn’t have written a better piece–so I share his. I admired his bravery in speaking out so soon after the trial. Read Seth’s piece please.
I wasn’t ready. There had already been attempts at finding out who I was. Threats to expose my identity. For a moment I was afraid.
But I don’t live in fear. It is not my nature to be silent.
As Seth asserts, ‘We did not convict Stone based on his political beliefs or his expression of those beliefs. We did not convict him of being intemperate or acting boorishly. We convicted him of obstructing a congressional investigation, of lying in five specific ways during his sworn congressional testimony and of tampering with a witness in that investigation.’
The prosecutors who have now resigned did a masterful job of laying out every element of every charge, backed with ample evidence. As foreperson, I made sure we went through every element, of every charge, matching the evidence presented in the case that led us to return a conviction of guilty on all 7 counts.
It pains me to see the DOJ now interfere with the hard work of the prosecutors. They acted with the utmost intelligence, integrity, and respect for our system of justice.
For that, I wanted to speak up for them and ask you to join me in thanking them for their service.
