Stone Jury Foreman Has Trail of Anti-Trump Views

2020 February 13

CNN and the rest of the media has reported that the jury foreman (foreperson if any politically correct are lurking) has defended the four DOJ attorneys who have threatened to resign over the possibility of Roger Stone’s sentence being reduced.

What CNN and the rest of the media isn’t reporting is that, since the jury foreman’s identity became public, her social media indicates that she is a strong anti-Trump Democrat who never should have been seated on the Roger Stone jury, let alone be the jury foreman.

Tomeka Hart is a failed Democratic candidate for Congress from Tennessee and former Memphis City School board president. Her social media history shows a long trail of anti-Trump comments. She called Trump supporters racists and tweeted about the Roger Stone case before it went to trial.

A Google check this morning shows this information is only being discussed by conservative blogs and the foreign press. So since CNN reports fake news and buries real news, we have to go to the foreign press for real news.

The foreperson on the jury that convicted Roger Stone has come forward, and is revealed to be a failed Democrat candidate for Congress and activist vehemently opposed to President Donald Trump.

Tomeka Hart, a former Memphis City Schools Board President, came forward as the Stone jury foreperson in a Facebook post on Wednesday, voicing support for prosecutors in the case.

Hart confirmed to The Daily Memphian that she wrote the Facebook post, but she declined an interview with the newspaper.

Stone supporters were shocked when a review of Hart’s social media posts showed that she posted on Twitter mocking Stone’s dramatic arrest prior to being seated on the jury, and frequently denounced Trump, including calling the president and his supporters racists.

It’s unclear whether Stone’s political views and social media history were disclosed during jury selection, potentially raising questions about fairness that could impact the verdict on appeal.

Hart came forward amid controversy over Stone’s sentencing, after the four prosecutors on the case withdrew in response to Trump criticizing the government’s recommendation that Stone be sentenced to nine years in prison.

Trump has said that the prosecution of his former campaign advisor Stone prosecution for obstruction, false statements, and witness tampering was handled in a manner that was ‘ridiculous’ and an ‘insult to our country.’

‘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 said in her Facebook post on Wednesday.

‘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,’ Hart wrote, referring to the prosecutors who resigned in protest.

‘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,’ she said.

Hart unsuccessfully ran for Congress as a Democrat in 2012, and is an activist who has participated in anti-Trump rallies and protests.

Immediately, journalists and Trump supporters began scouring Hart’s social media history, finding a trove of anti-Trump sentiment.

Independent journalist Mike Cernovich was the first to report on Hart’s extensive history of anti-Trump social media posts.

In January 2019, Hart also re-tweeted a post by pundit Bakari Sellers mocking Stone’s arrest, and suggesting that racism was the reason conservatives were upset about the use of force in the FBI’s armed pre-dawn raid on his home.

Months later, Hart was impaneled on Stone’s jury. On the day the jury convicted him, she posted emojis of hearts and fist pumps.

Meanwhile, it emerged that U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson had denied a defense request to strike a potential juror on the case, who was an Obama-era press official with admitted anti-Trump views.

That juror’s husband worked at the same Justice Department division that handled the probe leading to Stone’s prosecution. 

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.

Can you say “mistrial?” You have to wonder if the whole thing wasn’t a set-up by the DOJ. How did Tomeka Hart even get selected for the Jury pool? Did she lie during the jury selection process?

    This should be the major news story today, but with CNN it likely will not see the light of day.

    JR –

    The same as the leftist that rammed his van through the GOP voter registration tent in Jacksonville. There was nothing to see there either.

    There is no way a fair and impartial trial involving politics can be held in Washington, DC. A retrial should have a change of venue (to a place like Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Dallas or Phoenix) and a more honest judge.

    Bigger question is what the F is wrong with Stone’s legal team????? Voir Dare should have smoked her out before ever being empaneled. Last time I was on a jury I was required to fill out a 6 page bio of myself. Jeeez.

    6,

    One of the reasons I stick around here is BJG is a better aggregation site without even trying to be one. Then of course there is the dirty jokes, IP’s picture expose, great looking women and discussing boating accidents.

    From what I have read from lawyers commenting on other sites (sites without the dirty jokes, IP’s picture expose, great looking women and discussing boating accidents) it is far more difficult to dismiss jurors in federal trials. Here’s a post from dailycaller.com, which isn’t as fast as BJG, but has greater resources:

    This is hardly the first time Judge Amy Berman Jackson, an Obama appointee, has been accused of railroading Republicans.

    7 – They did make a challenge on that person from what I understand, but judge Jackson denied it.

    It’s not right to laugh at the mentally ill.
    But gosh, sometimes…

    9,10,

    Seems kind of like an old Soviet saying — “Show me the jury, they will convict the man.”
