    Joint Base Andrews, Maryland 1:41 P.M. EST THE PRESIDENT: Hello, everybody. It’s a little windy out here, so I’ll button up my coat. You have a couple of more people who want to join you. Q So we’re hearing you’re going to commute the sentence of Blagojevich? THE PRESIDENT: Yes, we have commuted the sentence of Rod Blagojevich. He served eight years in jail. That’s a long time. And I watched his wife on television. I don’t know him very well. I’ve met him a couple of times. He was on, for a short while, on “The Apprentice,” years ago....

  • Trump threatens lawsuits over Mueller probe, blasts prosecutors on Stone case

    Fox News ^ | 02/18/2020 | Brooke Singman
    President Trump on Tuesday blasted the federal prosecutors who until recently were working GOP operative Roger Stones case, while even threatening to bring lawsuits over former Special Counsel Robert Muellers badly tainted investigation. These were Mueller prosecutors, and the whole Mueller investigation was illegally set up based on a phony and now fully discredited Fake Dossier, lying and forging documents to the FISA Court, and many other things, Trump tweeted Tuesday morning. Everything having to do with this fraudulent investigation is badly tainted and, in my opinion, should be thrown out, Trump continued, while slamming Mueller himself and claiming he...
  • Roger Stone Juror Could Serve Jail Time if It's Determined She Lied About Bias, Napolitano Says

    Andrew Napolitano, who is hardly a cheerleader for Team Trump, told Tucker Carlson Thursday evening that Tomeka Hart, the woman who served as foreperson on the jury during Roger Stone's trial, could face jail time if it's determined she lied about her bias when she was selected to serve on the jury.... ....Tomeka Hart's Twitter page, which hasn't been active since November 2019, is full of anti-Trump tweets and links. It's obvious this woman was a hardcore partisan who was set on convicting Stone and lied in order to get on the jury to ensure that happened.

    It was announced yesterday that Andrew McCabe will not be facing any criminal charges. https://twitter.com/MSchwartz3/status/1228366413364125701It is one more abominable event in the conspiracy against the Trump campaign. What this really does, however, is put the focus on the two tiers of the justice system that exist today- one for the left and another for the right. That two tiered system was spotlighted when James Comey let Hillary Clinton off the hook for her reckless disregard for classified information.Those committing offenses far less egregious were punished severely. That two tiered justice system now rewards Andrew McCabe. You will remember that Hillary...

    Several months ago, during the early days of Roger Stones trial, the prosecution and defense teams were busy fighting over what jurors would end up making the final cut for the official jury pool and alternates. Obama appointed Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who has ruled against every conservative figure or cause that has ever come before her court, would routinely ignore the concerns of Stones defense team about juror bias. Judge Jackson didnt care that potential jurors had political backgrounds or had given inappropriate and extremely biased answers in their jury questionnaires.In fact, Judge Jackson agreed with prosecutors to remove...
  • Roger Stone asks for new trial in sealed motion, one day after Trump accused jury forewoman of bias

    Washington Compost ^ | Feb 14, 2020 | Spencer Hsu, John Wagner
    Defense attorneys for Roger Stone demanded a new trial Friday, one day after President Trump suggested that the forewoman in his longtime political confidant’s case had “significant bias.” The legal motion could affect Stone’s Feb. 20 sentencing date on charges of witness tampering and lying to Congress. The basis for the request was filed under seal Friday, but its existence was disclosed in a court order by U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who gave U.S. prosecutors until Feb. 18 to respond.... The Supreme Court standard for juror qualification is that they need not “be totally ignorant of the facts...

    WASHINGTON - There were two views Thursday night on Attorney General William Barr's complaints about President Donald Trump's tweets targeting the Justice Department and they couldn't have been more distinct: Supporters of the Trump administration took Barr at face value and praised him. Critics thought he was faking it. "The attorney general says it's getting in the way of doing his job," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told Fox News anchor Bret Baier. "Maybe the president should listen to the attorney general." "Barr doesn't care where it takes him," House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said to Fox's Sean...

    Thirty-nine elected prosecutors in a joint statement condemned Attorney General William P. Barr for recent his rhetoric that attacked progressive policies, arguing that his dangerous and failed approach to criminal justice disproportionately punished poor people and racial minorities while diverting resources away from more serious crimes Sadly, we are perceived as a threat by some who are wedded to the status quo or, even worse, failed policies of past decades, the 39 state, county and city prosecutors wrote. Critics such as Attorney General William P. Barr seek to bring us back to a time when crime was high, success was...

    WASHINGTON -- House Democrats frustrated over the Senates acquittal of President Donald Trump are pushing their oversight efforts toward the Justice Department and what they call Attorney General William Barrs efforts to politicize federal law enforcement. Democrats have demanded more information about Barrs intervention in the case of Roger Stone, a longtime confidant of President Donald Trump who was convicted in November. Barr this week overruled prosecutors who had recommended that Stone be sentenced to 7 to 9 years in prison. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi criticized Barr on Thursday, calling him one of Trumps henchmen. The attorney general has stooped...

    Attorney General William Barr told ABC News in an interview aired Thursday that President Trump had never asked him to do anything in a criminal case but advised the president to stop tweeting about the Justice Department, saying it makes it impossible for me to do my job. The remarks are a significant and rare public break by the attorney general from the president, following days of controversy surrounding the Justice Departments decision to lessen a sentence for Trump ally Roger Stone after the president tweeted about his displeasure with the gravity of the original sentence recommendation. I think its...

    There was greater controversy when President Barack Obama weighed in on the arrest of a Harvard professor in 2009. Obama said that Cambridge, Massachusetts, police acted stupidly when arresting Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. in July 2009. Gates had locked himself out of his home and forced the door open; a neighbor called police, and a confrontation ensued after Sgt. James Crowley arrived and asked for ID. In a press conference several days later, Obama admitted he did not have all the facts, but still accused the officer of racism.

    When the dam bursts, a lot of water is released. The Roger Stone dam has burst and we have a flood of new information that should absolutely result in a mistrial. Desperate to find something to hang Trump and justify its existence, the Mueller team had been investigating Roger Stone for some time. Mueller's crew fabricated all sorts of charges but then limited them to something that sounded vaguely justifiable. With that in hand, on January 25, 2019 Mueller had the FBI conduct a pre-dawn raid to apprehend the dangerous 67 year old in ill health and no criminal record...

    A former Democratic congressional candidate revealed Wednesday that she was the foreperson on the jury that convicted Roger Stone. Tomeka Hart said during the jury selection process that she did not pay that close attention to developments in the Russia investigation. She also said that Stones links to President Donald Trump would absolutely not affect her views at trial. But Harts social media posts show that she was closely tuned in to the Russia probe and that she considered Trump and his supporters to be racist. When Tomeka Hart was interviewed during the jury selection process as part of the...

    From beginning to end, Robert Mueller and his squad used Roger Stone as an object lesson to frighten anyone who had high-level contact with the Trump campaign in the lead-up to and immediately after the election. Stone is not a savory character, but the treatment meted out to Stone, now 67, had a revolting aura of police state hanging about it from the start. Now, it turns out that this un-American police state set up a kangaroo trial to shuttle Stone into prison. The Mueller mob started its press against Stone in January 2019, when Stone, who ought to have...

    Full title: Roger Stone jury foreperson comes forward to defend prosecutors - but social media history of the failed Democrat candidate reveals she mocked his arrest, labeled Trump supporters racist and posed with ex-DNC chair Donna Brazil 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.

    Roger Stone belongs in prison for a very long time. The seven felonies of which he stands convicted are at heart crimes of political corruption lying to Congress and tampering with witnesses in order to impede a federal investigation into official wrongdoing. The charges together could have brought him 50 years in prison and that would not have been unjust. The Lord may have mercy on his soul, but his ass belongs in the federal penitentiary for a good long while.

    Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said Wednesday the Justice Department's initial recommendation to imprison Republican political consultant Roger Stone for up to nine years was both extreme and a plot by prosecutors linked to the Mueller probe to legitimize their now-defunct investigation. "It rises out of the Mueller investigation, which has been thoroughly compromised by not only the FISA come up with the political nature of the investigators, most of whom are Democrats or Democrat donors," Fitton told "Tucker Carlson Tonight." "You also have them investigating Trump for almost two years, knowing the underlying issue -- Russia collusion -- was...

    WASHINGTON - A federal judge has rejected a request by U.S. President Donald Trump ally Roger Stone for a new trial, according to a court filing released on Wednesday, a day after a Justice Department reversal over sentencing prompted prosecutors to resign from the case. U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson, in a Feb. 5 order, said the Republican operatives lawyers had not presented grounds for a new trial ... or any reason to believe there has been a serious miscarriage of justice.
