...Rew Napolitano believes President Donald Trump's former adviser, Roger Stone, should get a new trial.
...The Fox News senior judicial analyst has known Stone for over four decades but said that has no bearing on the fact that the long-time Trump ally is "Absolutely entitled" to a new trial in light of an "Inherent bias" from a jury member.
..."It is the duty of the judge to ensure that both the government and the defendant get a fair trial and if the judge discovers afterwards that there was a built-in inherent bias on the part of a member of a jury against the defendant, that is an automatic trigger for a new trial," Napolitano explained.

..."Is Roger Stone a danger to society? Absolutely not. Was anybody harmed as a result of what Roger Stone did? Absolutely not. Is the president of the United States of America, who is the chief federal law enforcement officer in the land, entitled to express an opinion to his attorney general about a case the DOJ is prosecuting? Of course he is," Napolitano said, referring to Trump's criticism of the judge and of the recommended jail time.
