Roger Stone is now demanding a new trial — after President Donald intervened in the case

Donald Trump accomplice Roger Stone is making legal moves that could delay his upcoming sentencing.

“Defense attorneys for Roger Stone demanded a new trial Friday, one day after President Trump suggested that the forewoman in his friend’s case had ‘significant bias.’ The legal motion could delay Stone’s Feb. 20 sentencing date on charges of witness tampering and lying to Congress,” The Washington Post reported Friday.

Stone’s request was filed under seal with U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson.

The filing came one day after Trump lashed out at the jury.

“Trump was referring to Tomeka Hart, a former president of the Memphis City Schools Board of Commissioners and unsuccessful Democratic candidate for Congress. Hart has identified herself as the forewoman of the jury in a Facebook post, saying she ‘can’t keep quiet any longer’ in the wake of the Justice Department move to reduce its sentencing recommendation for Stone from the seven-to-nine years recommended by front-line prosecutors,” the newspaper noted.

"A senior U.S. intelligence official told lawmakers last week that Russia wants to see President Trump reelected, viewing his administration as more favorable to the Kremlin’s interests, according to people who were briefed on the comments," The Washington Post reported Thursday. "Trump learned about Pierson’s remarks from Rep. Devin Nunes (Calif.), the committee’s ranking Republican and a staunch Trump ally, said one person familiar with the matter."
