CNN’s Brooke Baldwin Dumps Out of Trump Speech To Fact-Check His Attacks on Roger Stone Juror and Judge
BALDWIN: "Okay. We’re going to pull away from this. Item number one, this is the President of the United States who continues to go after justice, you know, attacking jurors, attacking judges. Elie Honig, just jump right in. There’s a lot to go through as often when the President speaks. We need to fact check, where do you want to begin?"
HONIG: "These attacks on the foreperson of the jury are ridiculous. First of all, the foreperson of the jury, it's on the record, was asked, she said, ran for Congress, I’m a Democrat. Jurors are not expected to be robots. They’re human beings, and when this happens, it happens all the time, judges say okay, given that, can you still judge the facts here impartially and fairly? She said yes. Roger Stone’s lawyers could have thrown her off. You get what's called jury strikes. They did not, they said fine, judge, she looks fine."
