Judge Amy Berman Jackson criticizes Trump's attacks on Roger Stone juror

Jackson read the President’s tweet attacking the Stone jury forewoman, as well as commentary from InfoWars’ Alex Jones and Tucker Carlson from Fox News, to a federal courtroom, in deciding to hear testimony from jurors while protecting their identities after Stone asked for a retrial.

Making jurors’ identities public “would put them at substantial risk of harm,” Jackson said. “In a highly publicized political climate … the risk of harassment and intimidation of any juror” who may testify to the court today “is extremely high.”

“While judges may have volunteered for their positions … jurors are not volunteers,” Jackson said. “They are deserving of the public’s respect.”
