Tweeting while aboard Air Force One on his way back from India, Donald Trump just doubled down on his attack against the jury foreman in the case of Roger Stone, long-time GOP political operative and former Trump confidant, and said the judge in the case is also biased against him.

There has rarely been a juror so tainted as the forewoman in the Roger Stone case. Look at her background. She never revealed her hatred of “Trump” and Stone. She was totally biased, as is the judge. Roger wasn’t even working on my campaign. Miscarriage of justice. Sad to watch!

Here's the full clip of the interview, where we I asked her whether the Dems can come together after the primary process. "I don't know. It's pretty nasty & I think that we have lost sight of what the goal here is. The goal is to get Donald Trump out of the White House," she said pic.twitter.com/URuiZ4IIuf

How the coronavirus crisis could lead to four more years of Donald Trump   -8%

It’s the economy, stupid. That was the message at the heart of Bill Clinton’s successful campaign for US president in 1992. The economy will again loom large in the 2020 race for the White House but it’s just possible that the incumbent, Donald Trump, will get a helping hand from a very unlikely source: the coronavirus disease, Covid-19. Taking the data at face value, the US economy is doing pretty well. Trump has been understandably quick to claim credit for that, as any US president would.It…

Trumps policies are setting up the US economy for a fall, but would a Democratic president be any better?   9%

Congressman: Why I'm endorsing Bloomberg   2%

In 2016, I was elected to Congress in a ruby red seat that no Democrat had won since 1933. As exciting as that night was, President Trump also won -- not only in my district, but in states all across America that traditionally went Democratic.
