In an exclusive interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity Thursday night, President Donald Trump suggested that Roger Stone’s case should’ve been declared a mistrial due to extreme bias specifically from the judge and jury.

“Can you believe it? The hatred she [jury forewoman] had for him and for me. And she acted like she was innocent. She ran for Congress or something and lost. But she was like pretending to be an innocent. How did she even get into the jury pool? She must’ve had a little contact,” Trump said.

He continued, “And the judge who’s been brutal, the judge who sentenced Roger has been brutal. Take a look at what she’s done to people.”

“Take a look at what she did for Hillary related things, ok,” Trump explained. “Wasn’t brutal there. But, look at what she did to people. Just take a look at what she’s done and Roger Stone had a jury forewoman who was a disaster. How that’s not declared a mistrial or more than a mistrial, is incredible to anybody that sees it. This is a person that hated Roger Stone, hated me, and obviously said wonderful things.”

Stone spoke exclusively with “The Sara Carter Show” on Thursday and concluded the interview with a plea for the President to either commute his sentence or pardon him. Stone is set to report to jail on Tuesday.

When asked if he would fulfill Stone’s requests, Trump said “we’re gonna see,” adding, “But, I think he was treated very unfairly.”

Historic House Vote Expels Rep. George Santos Amidst Scandal

In a turn of events, the House of Representatives made history on Friday with a vote to expel Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), marking the first such expulsion in over two decades. A moment fraught with gravity unfolded as Speaker Mike Johnson wielded his gavel to formalize Santos’ removal, setting a precedent in congressional annals.

Santos, indicted on 23 counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, and other charges, has not faced conviction but stands accused of misusing campaign funds for opulent purchases. The bipartisan vote, tallying 311 to 114, signaled robust support for expulsion, with a marginally higher number of Republicans opting to retain Santos.

Questions loomed as Speaker Johnson left the chamber, his silence leaving the fate of the ongoing government spending battle uncertain. According to reports from Fox News, Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer emphasized the non-partisan nature of the decision, asserting that members concluded Santos had tarnished the House’s reputation and was unfit for representation.

Within the GOP, conflicting opinions emerged, with Rep. Darrell Issa arguing against expulsion, citing the presumption of innocence. The tight-lipped stance of the House Ethics Committee played a pivotal role in the deliberations.

Conversely, members of the New York Republican delegation, led by Rep. Marc Molinaro, asserted Santos’ commission of crimes, justifying expulsion based on a comprehensive investigation.

Santos himself predicted the outcome in an exclusive morning interview on “FOX & Friends.” This vote not only underlines the House’s rare use of expulsion powers but also sets a critical precedent in handling members facing severe legal challenges.
