Evidence Uncovered of Potential Jury Misconduct in Trump Trial

Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan revealed Friday that a Facebook user claiming to be a “cousin” of a juror in former President Donald Trump’s hush money trial suggested he had advanced knowledge of last week’s guilty verdict.

“Today, the Court became aware of a comment that was posted on the Unified Court System’s public Facebook page and which I now bring to your attention,” Merchan wrote in a letter to Trump attorney Todd Blanche and the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.

“In the comment, the user, ‘Michael Anderson,’ states: ‘My cousin is a juror and says Trump is getting convicted … Thank you folks for all your hard work!!! ….’” the judge explained.

The comment was included in a response to a May 29 post on the New York court system’s Facebook page that was unrelated to the 77-year-old former president’s trial.

Facebook labeled the comment as being “one week old” when it was noticed, according to Merchan.

Al Baker, a spokesman for the New York State Office of Court Administration, told The Post that “As appropriate, the Court informed the parties once it learned of this online content.”

In his Facebook profile, Anderson describes himself as a “Transabled & a professional sh** poster.”

Last Thursday, Trump was found guilty of 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in an apparent effort to conceal hush money payments made to porn star Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 election.

It’s unclear if Anderson’s Facebook comment will have any effect on the guilty verdict, or if he actually discussed the case with a juror.

    It all depends on their orders from the White House, there are still other jurisdictional districts to be heard from! Do not limit the dastardly deeds of the Biden’s crime family to just this one farce court. His backers are far more diverse and well funded through taxpayers money and Soros funding to destroy America and make us tolerant to the changes to Our God given Rights as they slowly and steadily take them away!
    Our Freedom of speech is now censored and changing into a government allowed indulgences.
    Our Second amendment it was found that the government did not have the authority to disarming the citizens!
    And on down the list of our hard fought for Rights that the democratic socialist are destroying.
    Ignore that it was a conspiracy orchestrated from the White House to tie Trump in court under a gag order, restrictions on his movements, negative press releases flooding the media!
    How is that not called Election interference with such a heavy thumb on the scales?
    What has happened to our once great nation under Biden’s control is obvious, and very sad!

    This is the least of it when it comes to the impropriety of the trial. Everything about this insignificant nonsense reeks of injustice. You have a judge who’s daughter is a fundraiser for prominent democrats,a Democrat judge with a Democrat jury in a strongly Democratic venue. Trump didn’t stand a chance. There were so many times due to the testimony when Merchan could’ve dismissed the charges but refused because he insisted on putting the case in the hands of the jury because he knew what the political climate would be during deliberations. They all set a nasty precedent that will haunt our country for the rest of our days.

    What LAW Book states that a Judge can send the Jury to deliberate but tells them – There are 34 charges and ALL of you don’t have to find him quilty on each charge – WTH? So if 1/2 found him guilty on 17 of the charges & 1/2 did not – How did they come to 34 separate charges of Guilty. I think they should poll the Jury and ask each one – what charges did YOU alone find him Guilty of…. Go thru the entire Jury of 12 x 34 charges – I bet we’ll find out that NO charges had FULL Guilty Outcomes. I thought our Court System required ALL or Nothing. They can ALL say Guilty on 1 charge but then cannot come to an agreement on 33 of them. I REFUSE and CANNOT believe that all 12 Jurors found Trump guilty of ALL charges – Come on Man, how can Stormy Daniels issue a written statement stating she NEVER had a sexual relationship with him YET him be found guilty of paying her hush money to hide the Sex that they never had…… NONE of it makes a lot of sense. NYC needs to reveal how much this entire Circus cost the NYC taxpayers. Then the Bill for every dime should be sent to Joe Biden Campaign Office because JOE BIDEN was wholly responsible for this mess – plus 3 other cases.

    It’s time to prosecute Joe for removing Classified Documents from it’s proper place, leaving them strewn about everywhere and not even knowing where all of them were at – for 40+ years. He had NO LEGAL right to do so. He can’t be too feeble minded to stand Trial yet get up at the Podium, look for his invisible chair and state that he is quite capable of working for 4 more years…..He was on Vacation >42% of his term at this age – he’ll be MIA even more as he ages –

    I think the crooked judge is looking for a way out. He finds himself in a bad situation by having to sentence DJT in July. He knows that if he sentences him to jail the country will go ballistic and Trump will win in Nov. If he doesn’t sentence him to jail, the lunatic Left wll burn down the city.

    Another lie, I thought i had read this before I left for can!
