    Total failure.
    Being disloyal to Trump is a taint, apparently, and should disqualify you from jury service. Remember when Trump said the judge in the Trump University fraud case couldn't make an unbiased decision because he had a Hispanic name? Same principle.
    Wasn't the US government separated into 3 branches to prevent dictatorship? Good thing the President isn't allowed to interfere in the Judicial and Legislative branches.

Stone's lawyers knew she was a Democratic activist, former candidate for Congress, and didn't care - never requested she be removed for cause or as one of their peremptory challenges. But somehow the views she alerted the defense team to, and which the defense didn't care about, are proof of a bias and the conviction must be thrown out!!
    You should get out from under that rock you are living under. I'm sure you can find all the news about that juror, all by yourself.

    I agree with you that "impartial" means that if it's a republican on trial they MUST support Donald J. Trump. MAGA!! KAG!! Q FOREVER!! If that's not in their Twitter profile, sorry, you cannot serve on the jury.

    Re: Judge denies Roger Stone's motion to disqualify her

    So it is clear that only MAGA Hat wearing Trump supporters should have been on the jury. Anyone else, especially those with political views should have been immediately disqualified. That is clearly a failure on the part of the defense. It was they who were supposed to make sure that anyone who had an anti-Trump opinion was thrown off the jury. Because they didn't do their job, the jury had no choice but to convict, right?

    Therefore, the basis for any appeal must be inadequate counsel, not jury bias.

    I've read it and we had a thread on it, and the sum total of her comments about Stone, the defendant, was two tweets. That's it. You can look them up since you're so informed and tell us how those two tweets are legal proof of a bias against Stone, the defendant.

    And of course you ignored that the defense KNEW she was a Democratic activist, former Congressional candidate, and didn't care. Well, if bias against Trump disqualifies someone in a trial where the defendant is Roger Stone, then every Democrat is disqualified, almost by definition. If not the defense has about a 90% chance of disqualifying - just ask the question. Do you favor or oppose DJT? Oppose is apparently enough for getting them kicked off for cause. And only MAGAs can sit on a jury if Stone gets a new trial, right? Can you cite precedent for this position? No...

    It's clear that you support rigged juries.

    Re: Judge denies Roger Stone's motion to disqualify her

    The following excerpt from the judge's ruling is rather illuminating...

    The record dating back to January of 2019 reflects that the Court took each issue raised by this defendant seriously; that on each occasion, it ruled with care and impartiality, laying out its reasoning in detail; and that it was scrupulous about ensuring his right to a fair trial. It granted important evidentiary motions in his favor; it proposed utilizing a written questionnaire to ensure that the parties could receive more information than is usually available for jury selection; it struck 58 potential jurors for cause based on the defendant’s motions or on its own motion; and it repeatedly resolved bond issues in his favor, even after he took to social media to intimidate the Court, after he violated conditions imposed by the Court, after he was convicted at trial, and after he was sentenced to a term of incarceration.

    ....There is no rule and no case law that would justify the recusal of a judge for bias simply because he or she says something about an issue on the docket, on the record, at some point before a reply has been filed, or before a hearing – which may or may not be required in the Court’s discretion – has concluded. If parties could move to disqualify every judge who furrows his brow at one side or the other before ruling, the entire court system would come to a standstill. At bottom, given the absence of any factual or legal support for the motion for disqualification, the pleading appears to be nothing more than an attempt to use the Court’s docket to disseminate a statement for public consumption that has the words “judge” and “biased” in it.

    Jurors can be dismissed for cause. There are alternate jurors who sit in. They don't vote unless they are selected to replace another juror. The judge did not find cause to replace the one juror. Further the jury foreman is selected by the jury themselves, not the judge or prosecution. And the foreman is simply one who speaks for the jury as a whole. More often than not, the entire jury is asked to confirm what the foreman has presented as the unanimous verdict.

    And if this verdict is appealed on grounds that the judge somehow behaved poorly, the defense had better have their ducks in a row. Appellate courts are notorious for referring for sanctions against lawyers who appeal frivolously, especially when it is based on a false narrative regarding the judge.
