Roger Stone says nearly all DC voter disqualified to serve on Trump jury

Political consultant Roger Stone said that nearly all Washington, D.C., voters should be considered disqualified from serving on the jury in the case of former President Donald Trump.

Stone shared the remarks with The Floridian during an interview on Trump's legal battles.

The comments

“Next, the big issue will be, ‘Oh, he has to be gagged. He can’t defend himself publicly because it might taint the jury pool,’” Stone said.

“I’ve been in this jury box. I’ve been in this courtroom. I’ve stood in the dock there. This jury pool is already tainted. There will not be a single Republican," he added.

Republicans respond

The case is in addition to charges against Trump in Georgia's Fulton County over claims of election interference following the 2020 election.

"Republican leaders were quick to come to the defense of Donald Trump shortly after a new indictment was filed against the former president in Fulton County, Georgia, related to his alleged efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election in the Peach state," the Washington Examiner reported.

"A grand jury in Georgia voted to indict Trump late Monday evening on a slew of racketeering charges related to the 2020 election, including a number of RICO violations, conspiracy to commit forgery, filing false statements and writings, filing false documents, solicitation of violation of oath by public officers, and more," it added.

Gaetz's plan

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is also working on a plan to grant Trump immunity against his legal challenges.

“First, we should tell Jack Smith that he has to show up and give a transcribed interview to the House Judiciary Committee in the next 15 days," Gaetz said in a recent interview.

“Force him to be the first prosecutor to bring a case while under criminal contempt himself. And if Merrick Garland won’t enforce that criminal contempt, then he subjects himself to an impeachment of the House,” he added.

The Washington charges may include a struggle to find a fair jury and trial but Trump will also face additional problems with his new charges as he seeks a comeback bid for the White House.
