    During voir dire, the possibility of impropriety is sufficient reason to disqualify a juror. Each side can even challenge a certain number of jurors without any cause at all.

    But the trial is over. The jury returned a verdict. It takes a much higher standard of proof to overturn that verdict than just the "possibility of impropriety".



    It came out today in court that Stone's lawyers didn't even bother to Google the juror's names before starting voir dire.

    I guess Stone could argue that his counsel was so incompetent that he was denied a fair trial.
    That's pathetic. Here's one link for those interested.

    Stone’s attorneys also conceded during the hearing that neither they nor his jury consultants ran a Google search on the juror, despite knowing for days she was likely to be among the first selected, citing “cost-slash-strategic” considerations.
    I didn't know and couldn't easily find out of the defense got a list of the names. I assumed not since it would seem perfectly obvious that for a trial like this the defense team would look for them on Twitter and Facebook. Of course they knew her name and of course they didn't examine her past.

    So the argument is, effectively, Roger Stone's defense counsel are a bunch of lazy incompetents, so, he should get a new trial. It's an almost perfect illustration of the Trump era where incompetence is actually celebrated by the lemmings.

    Funny thing is that a grand jury saw the evidence against McCabe and refused to indict him.

    Sorry to rain on that false equivalency parade, but one cannot compare apples to oranges.

    You're most welcome!

    I passionately phonies in power like McCabe, Comey, Clinton, Clapper, the FISA court, Bruce and Nellie Ohr, Podesta and others who manipulate the system for the left wing agenda. McCabe lied 4 times. No penalties. No nothing. Comey leaked classified information and yet Assange has to worry about jail for the same thing. Stone has a jury forewoman who hates him and Trump. No nothing. The judge is blatantly partisan. No nothing.
