Judicial Shenanigans – Stone Judge Will Deliver Sentence, then Immediately Postpone Execution of Sentence…

Oh this is sketchy as hell.  The notorious activist DC Judge Amy Berman Jackson announced today she will deliver the sentence for Roger Stone on Thursday; however, she will immediately postpone execution of that sentence until the issues around the request for a new trial are resolved.   Here’s what appears to be happening….

Judge Amy Berman-Jackson doesn’t want to deal with; and doesn’t want the optics of; the serious issue surrounding the activist jury foreperson, Tomeka Hart, prior to delivering her sentence.

Within the process to deal with Stone’s motion for a new trial, judge Berman-Jackson knows the petition would involve bringing in Tomeka Hart to her courtroom for questioning.  The judge doesn’t want that damaging political optic prior to delivering her sentence.  Obviously, such an appearance begs the question of how poorly Judge Berman-Jackson handled jury selection.  This CYA is a seriously political and sketchy decision.

Judge Amy Berman-Jackson will pass her sentence on Stone, and then take up the issue of a new trial *AFTER* the sentence is announced.  As a consequence the judge will not carry out execution of the sentence until the Tomeka Hart issues are addressed.  FUBAR.

WASHINGTON – […] In a 12-minute conference call with the defense and prosecution teams on Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson said she will still hand down Stone’s sentence at Thursday’s hearing, but indicated she plans to defer the execution of the sentence until the court addresses Stone’s request for a new trial.

[…] Prosecutors told Jackson they were in favor of moving forward with Thursday’s sentencing as planned. But Seth Ginsburg, a lawyer for Stone, argued they should hold off until the motions before the court are fully addressed.

“This issue goes to the heart of this case,” Ginsburg said. “It should be resolved before any further proceedings are had.”

[…] Two newly assigned prosecutors on the case — John Crabb Jr. and J.P. Cooney — made their debuts on behalf of the government on Tuesday. (read more)

And what is “J.P. Cooney’s most recent claim to public fame?…

    This entire fiasco is the fault of, and the product of, Judge Amy Berman-Jackson. Make no mistake this woman is an Obama appointed leftist activist in a judge’s robe. She has a prior history of leftist activism from the bench. I have sat through many trials both criminal and civil. We know the prosecution and the defense, during jury selection, each have an equal number of peremptory challenges. Obviously, I was not in that courtroom but I would be extremely curious as to how a person like the jury foreman in this case was NOT challenged during jury selection. I read that Judge Berman-Jackson was extremely hard on the defense during jury selection and during the trial. If true, this whole case, and especially Judge Berman-Jackson’s decisions and handling should be subject to judicial review. The jury pool in DC is notoriously left leaning. Mostly government employees who voted something like 95% Clinton in 2016. This was one reason AG Barr was not too keen about bringing the McCabe case in front of a DC jury. The chances of getting a fair trail are almost nil. I am hoping any legal actions brought by John Durham in the future are eventually tried in another jurisdiction…. almost anywhere but in Washington DC!

      I read tonight that someone has vetted the other jurors and not one single one of them are ordinary people. They are all connected to people in the government and several are supposedly liberal lawyers. The article said that not one person was an ordinary worker like a technician or plumber. Since the judge selects the jury in a federal court after the two sides present the answers to their questions, it all falls on this monster of a judge. It will be interesting to see the questions asked and the answers to see how many lies there were. Berman probably just wants to get out of this mess as quickly as she can. F*** Roger Stone!

      Additionally to Judge Jackson’s apparent bias and lack of good ethics, the question of the Constitutionality of the government to pick and choose court venues far asunder from where the accused, and presumed innocent, American citizen lives.

      The Constitution requires a trial and jury of one’s peers. Roger Stone was pulled out of his home in Florida and brought far away to DC where he had zero access to anyone who might support him or obtain information to his cause.

      Yet, the government had no such obstacle to their prosecution. At the very least, Stone should have been tried somewhere in the Florida judicial district in which he lived.

      Just another example of tyranny. JMHO

        The right to a jury trial by one’s “peers” is a myth. The jury must be impartial. See the Sixth Amendment (copied below). Stone’s alleged lying to Congress occurred in DC.

        In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.

      And let’s not forget that Stone’s “offenses” were manufactured crimes dreamed up by the Herr Weissman/ Herr Mueller cabal, which to my understanding, would not qualify as crimes if the DNC server was not actually hacked. The conventional wisdom now is that it was in fact, NOT hacked, but that the info was downloaded onto a mobile device such as a thumb drive. The FBI tried on three occasions to get to inspect the DNC server but the DNC stonewalled. WHY? Instead of cooperating, the DNC got their hired IT gang, CROWDSTRIKE, to send the FBI a report (redacted at that) affirming the server was hacked. And the FBI was OK with that?? Well the Special Counsel was, enough so that they definitively asserted in their report that indeed the DNC was hacked (of course, by the Russians, who else?). They couldn’t prove it, they had to take CROWDSTRIKE’s word for it. And this corrupt excuse for a judge wouldn’t even let Stone’s defense lawyers go there, questioning the veracity of the DNC server hack, AND THAT WAS (RIGHTLY SO) THE HEART OF STONE’S DEFENSE!! WTH? How is this fair? Obviously, obviously it is not. I guess the Dems are afraid that de-legitimizing the DNC hack would also de-legetimize the whole Special Counsel charade. Of course, the whole world now knows that it was a fraud from it’s very inception, but the Dem’s, along with their propaganda arm (MSM) are afraid to admit it. They hurl their faux outrage freely, their slurs of “racism”, “xenophobism”, “white nationalism”, and whatever else they can think of, to maximum advantage. Their only problem is, they’ve used it so much in the Trump era that their slurs and outrage is meaningless.
      The most perplexing issue to me is how breathtakingly corrupt our MSM is now. I can remember when news organizations would investigate wrong-doing, no matter what their political affinity was. This attempted coup (and affiliated machinations) of our President is the biggest political scandal in the history of our nation and most of the MSM has desperately colluded with the Dems to try to cover it up!

        You’d clearly state your misgivings about FBI trustworthiness based on what you’ve seen in publicized cases and behavior and that you’re predisposed to disregard whatever they present.

      The term “activist judge” says it all. Either judges understand the laws and follow them faithfully/objectively, or there is no justice. SCJ Soto-Major said in her confirmation hearing that the Supreme Court could benefit from the influence of a “wise Latina,” such as she. I was aghast at how inappropriate that attitude was for a judge who presumably believed in the Constitution as the ultimate standard in American law. Subjective attitudes and feelings based on ones cultural influences should be entirely immaterial. That goes double for political beliefs.

  9. I hope her reason is as clear to you as it is to me.

    In her sentencing decision (which by the way has been going through focus group testing and review by the WaPo and Ny Times) she is going to rip into Trump and Barr and praise the intelligence, courage, and brilliance of the 4 prosecutors. As you stated she can’t have the corrupt jurors problems divert attention from her attack.

    I would guess she will use dictator, corrupt, liar, fascist, divider, obstruction (she will say; “you are not going to obstruct lynchings, I mean obstruct justice in my court”) misogynist, and depending on the lunar cycle probably toss in some “Trump is insane” comments because every 4-5 weeks the “Trump is Insane” talking point re-emerges.

    “ The Washington Times report also offers a clue as to what Spence may have done for the CIA, as it cited sources that had claimed that Spence had spoken of smuggling cocaine into the U.S. from El Salvador, an operation that he claimed had involved U.S. military personnel. Given the timing of these comments from Spence, Spence’s powerful connections, and the CIA’s involvement in the exchange of cocaine for weapons in the Iran Contra scandal, his comments may have been much more than just boasts intended to impress his party guests.

    One of the most critical parts of the scandal surrounding Spence, however, was the fact that he had been able to enter the White House late at night during the George H.W. Bush administration with young men whom the Washington Times described as “call boys.”

    Spence later stated that his contacts within the White House, which allowed him and his “call boys” access, were “top level” officials and he specifically singled out George H.W. Bush’s then-National Security Advisor Donald Gregg. Gregg had worked at the CIA since 1951 before he resigned in 1982 to become National Security Advisor to Bush, who was then vice president. Prior to resigning from his post at the CIA, Gregg had worked directly under William Casey and, in the late 1970s, alongside a young William Barr in stonewalling the congressional Pike Committee and Church Committee, which investigated the CIA beginning in 1975. Among the things that they were tasked with investigating were the CIA’s “love traps,” or sexual blackmail operations used to lure foreign diplomats to bugged apartments, complete with recording equipment and two-way mirrors.

    Barr would later become Bush’s Attorney General, rising to that post yet again under Trump. Furthermore, Barr’s father worked for the precursor to the CIA, the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and recruited a young Jeffrey Epstein, then a high school drop-out, to teach at the elite Dalton School, from which Epstein was later fired. A year prior to hiring Epstein, Donald Barr published a science fiction fantasy novel about sex slavery. Notably, the same year Donald Barr hired Epstein, his son was working for the CIA. Bill Barr has refused calls to recuse himself from the Epstein case, even though he worked at the same law firm that has represented Epstein in the past.”

    If Barr says it’s me or the tweets, then don’t let the door hit you in the bag pipes on your way out big fella

      What he did the other day by telling a reporter that he can’t do his job because of the presidents tweets is in my opinion reason enough to fire him and should be done as soon as it is politically possible to get a better replacement.

        Indeed. By this action, Barr seems to be asking to be fired, which of course would make him a hero to the left and able to enjoy retirement ….oh and a book deal. The tweets importance cannot be overstated. If they were not effective, they would not be under constant attack.

    I haven’t read the 200+ comments yet…sorry if someone already commented:

    Does the Just Us dept always have to be so in our face with this cr*p?

    It’s absolutely infuriating the two tiered system we have (or put up with) while I bet they’re laughing about it!!

    Example: Pages tweet to Andy…

    DOJ pushes back at reports Barr considered quitting over Trump tweets

    I just wish Barr would have come out and said straight up that the media is lying yet again.

      They’ve said this type of thing before. General Kelly has no intention of resigning. President Trump has no intention of firing Rex Tillerson. Remember those denials? There were plenty of them – and guess what – the Administration lied.

            I reject using the labels like: liberal, progressive, socialist, etc.

            We should always say DEMOCRAT.

            Because only DEMOCRAT appears on the ballot. We’ve been giving DEMOCRATS a free pass for 30 years now with this “liberal” and “progressive” nonsense.

            You may notice Democrats never call their political opponents “conservatives.” They call them REPUBLICANS. Always.

            Democrats have consistently been winning the language war, because they study how to use language most effectively. It’s time Republicans learn how as well.

    Yes, this is more than just sketchy….

    I am doing some research right now. I’ve poured through hundreds of cases already..

    I cannot locate one single case where a federal judge, knowing that jury conflict exists that damages due process, will

    a. deliver a sentence FIRST…

    b. then immediately postpone the execution of that sentence…

    c. And in then hold some kind of inquiry (?) to “resolve” the matter of the jury conflict.

    I think this is more than just some kind of stunt..this is creating ADDITIONAL judicial irregularities on top of one that already exists.

    can someone here that has the time, help out. Look for any case where this has happened before.

    I’ll be spending the next several hours and tomorrow all day looking for it.

    I will be filing a complaint to the federal court clerk…to get it on record

    I will also contact the House of Representatives and challenge them to investigate for a possible article 2 impeachment inquiry.

    I will also include the same complaint to the senate

    I will also be sending this complaint to the defendants counsel and also this judge directly

    I will also be sending this to AG barr for him to take this case to investigate a civil rights complaint.

    I will be sending all of these by certified mail and also by email.

    notice:

    Pursuant to title 28, chapter 16 of the United States Code applies here.

    Examples of specific instances of judicial misconduct include:

    The use of a harsh and angry tone and demeanor,
    Excessive arrogance,
    Lack of impartiality,
    Incompetence,
    Improper political or even charitable or fund-raising activities,
    Sexually harassing conduct,
    Off-the-record, private communication with a litigant about a pending case,
    Criminal conduct,
    Conflict of interest,
    An ethnic or racial slur,
    Physical or mental disability,
    Bankruptcy or insolvency,
    Misuse of prestige of office,
    Allowing cameras in the courtroom,
    Receiving a bribe or gift from a litigant,
    Making it public comment on a pending case or which shows prejudgment
    Failure to recuse oneself in an appropriate case, and
    Administrative mismanagement such as a failure to render a judgment in a reasonable amount of time.

    my complaint is this judge is committed the following misconduct:

    a. Lack of impartiality (she fails to rule objectively or even place this trial on pause until the heavy and weight matter of reconciling what appears to be by all accounts a serious jury conflict that has demolished due process rights for the defendants to have a fair and equal trial with an impartial jury)
    b. Conflict of interest (she played a role in selecting the jury, failed to notice the impartiality issue with jury, and now that a jury conflict exist exists and she has knowledge of the strong indication of it, this judge is in a clear state of conflict over holding any impartial authority to handle this case. She’s in it above here ear-balls! and is still going forward on the most critical and significant effect to the defendant’s rights to a fair trial.)
    c. Failure to recuse oneself in an appropriate case (she IS aware of the conflict of interest, and is not only not accepting responsibility but is continuing the render judgement over it and failing to recuse even temporarily to determine if the jury conflict erodes the trial against the defendants rights to a fair trial…at the very least it’s the responsibility of the judge to commence FIRST a means to determine the nature of the jury conflict, resolve it FIRST…and then go from there…she has it completely backwards…)

    The Judge shall now be known as ‘the Queen of Hearts’:

    ‘It’s a pun!’ the King added in an offended tone, and everybody laughed, ‘Let the jury consider their verdict,’ the King said, for about the twentieth time that day.

    ‘No, no!’ said the Queen. ‘Sentence first—verdict afterwards.’

    ‘Stuff and nonsense!’ said Alice loudly. ‘The idea of having the sentence first!’

    Why not pronounce a sentence of time served? I thought she’d already jailed Mr. Stone.

    I’m guessing that the judge will offer Stone a deal that’s too good to pass up.

    If the deal is enticing enough, Stone drop his motion for a new trial and the judge doesn’t need to deal with the embarrassment of having the biased jury foreperson testify.

    This virtually ensures Roger’s case will be overthrown on appeal, and she is tainting the future jury pool. They will have to move the trial next time.
