Roger Stone Juror Wrote Anti-Trump Social Media Posts and Ran for Congress as Dem
The woman who revealed herself to be the jury foreperson for the Roger Stone case ran a failed congressional campaign as a Democrat and repeatedly criticized President Trump in social media posts.
Tomeka Hart is a former Memphis City Schools Board President and wrote about her role on Stone’s jury in a Facebook post supporting the four prosecutors who withdrew from the case after it was revealed the Department of Justice planned to revise their recommendation of up to nine years in prison for the political consultant.
In November, Stone was found guilty of obstruction of a congressional investigation, lying to Congress, and tampering with a witness.
In her post on social media, Hart wrote:
“I have kept my silence for months. Initially, it was for my safety. Then, I decided to remain silent out of fear of politicizing the matter. But I can’t keep quiet any longer. I want to stand up for Aaron Zelinsky, Adam Jed, Michael Marando, and Jonathan Kravis – the prosecutors on the Roger Stone trial. It pains me to see the DOJ now interfere with the hard work of the prosecutors. They acted with the utmost intelligence, integrity, and respect for our system of justice. For that, I wanted to speak up for them and ask you to join me in thanking them for their service…. As foreperson, I made sure we went through every element, of every charge, matching the evidence presented in the case that led us to return a conviction of guilty on all 7 counts.”
Hart’s Twitter feed is riddled with links to negative stories about President Trump and she quoted a tweet which referred to the president as the “#KlanPresiden.”
In one tweet, Hart linked to an Atlantic article about how Trump supporters are tired of being called racists and wrote, “Then stop being racists. Co-signing and defending a racist and his racist rhetoric makes you a racist. Point blank.”
In another tweet, she wrote, “Marched by [Trump’s] hotel…and the crowd went booooo!!! Then yelled shame, shame, shame as we walked by!”

The President’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani called wrote on Twitter, “This should be investigated. If you look at Tomeka Hart’s site you will see almost all the tweets are censored for sensitive content.”
