Roger Stone makes second request for new trial amid sentencing controversy

Roger Stone makes second request for new trial amid sentencing controversy

Former Trump adviser Roger Stone made another request for a new trial on Friday, following revelations about the possible political bias of one of the jurors in his first case.

She also revealed a history of Democratic activism and a bias against President Trump, after a series of left-wing social media posts came to light.

Hart also specifically cited the Stone case on social media before she voted to convict him, retweeting a post that mocked conservatives for calling Stone's predawn arrest "excessive."

Jackson had not acted on Stone's second request as of late Friday but did order both sides to file motions by Tuesday.

Trump on Tuesday sounded off about Stone's case on Twitter, specifically citing four Justice Department (DOJ) lawyers who quit the case in protest after it appeared senior leaders at the DOJ would seek a reduced sentence.
