Social media posts from the lead juror in the Roger Stone trial, who is “standing up” for the four prosecutors who withdrew from the case this week, reveal she was a perpetuator of the grand Russian collusion conspiracy theory in addition to showing an obvious bias against Stone.
In March of 2019, Tomeka Hart tweeted about the Mueller indictments which, at the time, included Stone.
“Ignoring the numerous indictments, guilty pleas, and convictions of people in 45’s inner-circle, some Republicans are asserting that the Mueller investigation was a waste of time because he hasn’t found evidence,” Hart wrote on Twitter sharing from a now-deleted Facebook post.
Two months earlier, she even tweeted about Stone’s arrest and posted an article laying out Stone’s indictment.
In August last year, Hart also tweeted that anybody who supported President Donald Trump was racist.
“Then stop being racists. Co-signing and defending a racist and his racist rhetoric makes you racist. Point blank,” Hart wrote on Twitter while linking to a piece in the Atlantic of Trump supporters complaining about the label constantly being lodged against them.
But believe it or not, it gets worse. While Hart was serving on the jury, she tweeted about the president’s impeachment, sharing a letter to the editor in the New York Times requesting the outlet use more direct language to accuse Trump of committing a crime in his dealings with Ukraine.
There are also these tweets from 2017:
Hart declared Wednesday that she was going to “stand up” for the prosecutors pushing for a seven to nine-year imprisonment for the 67-year-old first-time offender convicted on obstruction of a congressional investigation and witness tampering. The overly harsh sentence caught officials at the Justice Department by surprise and drew condemnation from Trump who took out his anger on the prosecutors on the case who have now quit.
Hours after Trump declared the sentence “horrible and very unfair,” the Department announced it would seek a shorter imprisonment.
