Mark Levin shreds Judge Berman Jackson over handling of Roger Stone case: ‘Not capable of impartial justice’

Following the sentencing of long-time Trump ally Roger Stone, conservative radio show host Mark Levin lit into the Obama-appointed judge who he believes “should not be handling cases involving the president’s past associates.”

As BizPac Review reported, Stone received a sentence of 40 months in jail, and a $20,000 fine as the result of being found guilty of “process crimes stemming from an ostensibly illegitimate investigation into potential Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.”

Levin believes that the trial may have been rigged from the start, claiming Judge Amy Berman Jackson is “incapable of impartial justice.”

He claims that her inaction on Tomeka Hart, who had a demonstrable bias against President Trump and his associates, was a clear indicator that Stone was never going to receive a fair trial in her court.

Nevertheless, she persisted, as they say. The dog-and-pony show commenced and on Thursday, we learned how it ended.

Levin shared an article from Fox News that described the “firm” approach taken by Judge Jackson against Stone.

In court, Jackson repeatedly made clear she holds Stone responsible for his circumstances, as his lawyers sought leniency.

“Mr. Stone lied,” Jackson said. She also said Stone injected himself “smack” into a political controversy and was not “persecuted.”

Jackson said that Stone’s actions were “deliberate” and “planned” as she decried his “utter disrespect” for the law. But she did note that any of his supporters sent “compelling” letters to her in which Stone was described as “caring and generous.”

This perceived bias was enough that even President Trump himself weighed in on the matter.

Given the length of the sentence, it is unclear whether President Trump will immediately pardon Stone, or if he will wait until a potential retrial, given the serious and grievous bias of the jurors during the first one.

*Update: Late Thursday afternoon President Trump spoke to the press about the Roger Stone sentence and hinted, that at least for now, a pardon wouldn’t be forthcoming.

“I want the process to play out,” he said while addressing the biased juror and the call for a new trial.  “I’d love to see Roger exonerated. And I’d love to see it happen.”
