Imagine doing your civic duty and going to jury duty. It is interesting and a change of pace from work. At the same time, some trials carry a far greater responsibility, especially when that duty involved potshots from the most powerful man in the world. Is this all Donald Trump has to do with himself?
Apparently, POTUS has had plenty of time to attack an individual juror and a jury forewoman. This was the worst form of jury tampering, because of the power imbalance. The Donald wanted his friend and self-described “dirty trickster” exonerated. After that, the president insisted that the forewoman in Roger Stone’s case “has rarely been…so tainted:”
‘There has rarely been a juror so tainted as the forewoman in the Roger Stone case. Look at her background. She never revealed her hatred of “Trump” and Stone. She was totally biased, as is the judge. Roger wasn’t even working on my campaign. Miscarriage of justice. Sad to watch!’
The president of these United States has no real idea about how the American justice system works, apparently. Certainly, witness tampering is a crime. Yet, this has gone far deeper. Trump thinks that people are either his friend or his enemy — no middle ground there.
Potus appears to believe that people who agree with him were innocent, and those who disagreed were evil and need to be eradicated. What a warped idea of how the machinery that made up America worked.
Donald Trump wanted his longtime supporter sprung from jail. Unfortunately for him, that was not how the country operates. Still, Trump has been shown to want what he wants, when he wants it.
