CNN omitted critical background details in its Wednesday article about one of the seemingly biased jurors on the Roger Stone trial.

Stone, a longtime GOP operative, was convicted in November of 2019 on obstruction, witness tampering, and five counts of making false statements to Congress. Federal prosecutors recommended up to nine years in prison for Stone, 67, causing outrage among many – including the president.

The article goes on to state the following:

One of the jurors who voted to convict the Trump confidante, Tomeka Hart, was recently discovered to have run for Congress as a Democrat. Hart also frequently posted anti-Trump stories and wrote a Facebook post Tuesday in support of the four prosecutors who withdrew after a revision in Stone’s sentencing recommendation.

CNN’s report focused on Hart’s defense of the four prosecutors, and included the following:

“I want to stand up for Aaron Zelinsky, Adam Jed, Michael Marando, and Jonathan Kravis — the prosecutors on the Roger Stone trial,” she wrote in the post that was shared with CNN. “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.”

Daily Caller reporter Shelby Talcott tweeted, “Incredible that @CNN didn’t feel the need to include ANY background details on the Roger Stone juror, including her:
– anti-Trump stories
– how closely she followed the Stone case
– her Democratic congressional run”
