Based on the prior sealed motion, this has to do with controversial juror - and Russia collusion hoaxer/Trump critic - Tomeka Hart. <a href=""></a></p>

<p>Stone's new lawyers requested the new trial on Friday, just one day after Judge Amy Jackson, an Obama appointee who handled Stone's case for almost a year and presided over the two-week jury trial, rejected Stone's claim that he deserves a new trial based on bias by a <strong><em>different juror</em></strong>, according to the <a href=""><em>Washington Examiner</em></a>.</p>

<p>As we noted yesterday, jury forewoman Tomeka Hart admitted to being a Stone trial juror in a Facebook post expressing outrage after <strong><a href="">four prosecutors withdrew</a> from his case</strong> on Tuesday in protest of the DOJ revising the longtime Trump adviser's recommended sentence of up to nine years in prison for a process crime.</p>

<p>Hart - who was a Democratic congressional candidate in Tennessee in 2012, has a Twitter history littered with anti-Trump propaganda and was <strong>actively posting on social media during the trial. </strong>This, as attorney and journalist <a href="">@Techno_Fog</a> points out, raises questions over how she responded to the juror questionnaire which asked specific questions regarding social media, the Mueller investigation, and running for public office.</p>

Here is the Tweet from one of the jurors who voted to convict Roger Stone, from the same day. <a href=""></a></p>

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet">
<p dir="ltr" lang="en" xml:lang="en" xml:lang="en">On that Roger Stone juror -<br /><br />
Of the utmost importance will be her responses to these juror questions on:<br /><br />
(1) Social media and the Mueller investigation<br /><br />
(2) Running for office<br /><br />
If she answered in the negative... things will get interesting.<br /><br />

<script async="" src="" charset="utf-8"></script><script async="" src="" charset="utf-8"></script><p>On Wednesday afternoon, Judge Berman Jackson rejected Stone's request for a new trial based on a juror whose identity was concealed in the filing who works for the IRS - which Stone argued "works hand-in-hand with the Department of Justice prosecuting criminal tax matters."</p>

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-conversation="none">
<p dir="ltr" lang="en" xml:lang="en" xml:lang="en">HELLO?<br /><br />
HELLO??<br /><br />
H-E-L-L-O???<br /><br />
One of the jurors on the Roger Stone show trial is the wife of an official who still works at the DOJ division that took down Stone!<br /><br />
The Oabama-appointed judge Amy Jackson says this is ok! <a href=""></a></p>
