The gag order prevented him from attacks on individual jurors, not passing on facts/opinions of journalists on the process in general.

So, democrats, on the one hand believe the Kremlin can 'interfere' in the 2016 election on behalf of a certain someone, but on the other the Kremlin has no idea "how American culture or law works".

Two totally contradictory positions but typical recently.

Not just Watters made the assertion. The gag order relates to him and not Watters or others. People are allowed to forward the opinions of others.

No one tell this guy about jury tampering.

How would the Kremlin know how American culture or law works?

Not just Watters made the assertion. The gag order relates to him and not Watters or others. People are allowed to forward the opinions of others.

Here's the elephant in the room: other outlets including NBC News, CNN, CBS News, and ABC News also publicized details about the juror, including additional identifying information.

This meets the aforementioned definition of "others".

I can't wait until Trump takes the stand...

Of course, first his lawyer will have to wake him up...

Dozo the Clown...

Trump’s reposting in his own hand of Watters’ lie was a clear violation of his pre-trial release barring him from making any statements (true or false and this one was a lie) about potential or actual jurors.

One really hopes there are significant consequences for what is plainly an attempt at jury manipulation.

We all know there's normal "fair and balanced", and then there's "MAGA fair and balanced"...

Normal fair and balanced is a jury pool of noncommitted, impartial people...

MAGA fair and balanced is a jury pool of people wearing red MAGA hats, "Trump is Jesus" T-Shirts, and gold Trump sneakers...

And then things would only be truly "fair and balanced" if Clarence Thomas was the judge...

Welcome to MAGA-law-and-order-world...

Are either of them on the jury now?

No.

So possibly biased jurors were removed.

What’s your problem?

Someone covered it earlier - 90% of MAGA anger is them figuring out how things work.

What’s your problem?

They want Roger Stone as jury foreman...only way it could be MAGA-fair...

The other one dropped out

The other one dropped out because her family found out it was her.

Thanks Jesse Watters. What a nice guy.

proven.

Maybe. Maybe not. He was excused either way.

The other one dropped out because her family found out it was her.

She would be disowned if the jury she is on doesn’t convict, so safer to drop out.

Yes, left wingers are generally honest, and will be open if they have a bias. Unlike rightwingers who try to overthrow democracy when they get bothered that it doesn't align with their extremism.

It's possible.

proven. He was arrested for crimes in support of leftist politics.

guess he lied about being impartial huh?

It's possible.

Just like it's possible some jurors may be lying about being impartial but are actually MAGA.

It's up to the lawyers on both sides to root them out and ensure they are excused for cause.

Justice Juan Merchan also excused another juror after prosecutors said he may not have disclosed prior brushes with the law.

yeah arrested for tearing down “right wing political material” that angered him.

guess he lied about being impartial huh?
