Fox’s Napolitano Says Roger Stone Not a Danger to American Society: ‘Absolutely Entitled’ to New Trial
NAPOLITANO: "Let me say at the outset that I have known Roger Stone for 40 years. I’m going to take that out of the equation. He is absolutely entitled to a new trial with a member of the jury making these kinds of revelations about the politics involved in the decisions to prosecute him. Before we even get to the propriety of the sentence and whether the President can weigh in on the sentence, I'll explain to you how that works. My views are the same as the former Attorney General. Look, I presided over 150 jury trials and most were criminal. It is the duty of the judge to ensure that both the government and the defendant get a fair trial and if the judge discovers afterwards that there was a built-in inherent bias on the part of a member — the defendant."
