Nikki Haley has said that she “trusts” the jurors in the politically motivated defamation case against President Donald Trump, even though they are from the same pool that said they’d like to see Jan. 6 defendants be executed.
It’s not unusual for a political candidate such as Democrat favorite Republican presidential candidate Haley to take subtle jabs at her opponent.
Unsurprisingly, Haley is taking swipes at President Trump after he took a hit in a legal fight with E. Jean Carroll.
But Haley is raising eyebrows with her citations of whom she “trusts” in a recent court decision that Trump is expected to appeal.
The jurors in the East Coast establishment.
These jurors are from the same elite social and economic class that a survey earlier showed were willing to see Jan. 6 protesters executed.
She said, during an interview:
“I absolutely trust the jury, and I think that they made their decision based on the evidence.
“I just don’t think that should take [Trump] off the ballot.
“I think the American people will take him off the ballot.”
That decision from the New Yorkers was that Trump must pay, pending affirmation on appeal, $83.3 million to E. Jean Carroll for calling her a liar when she accused him of rape, a charge another jury rejected.
That first jury awarded Carroll $5 million, accusing Trump of belittling her when she accused him of rape.
She sued again after he continued to deny her claims after the first verdict.
He says both decisions will be appealed.
The New York jury’s decision wasn’t a surprise, as the judge already had claimed that Trump defamed Carroll by denying her claims.
WND had reported only days ago the same type of jury pool, but in Washington instead of New York, was surveyed.
A poll reported in the Epoch Times reveals nearly half of potential D.C. jurors would be happy to see those protesters sent to prison for life – or executed.
The report points out multiple Jan. 6 defendants attempted to have their trials moved out of Washington because they wanted what the American justice system is supposed to provide, a fair hearing.
But judges there, largely of the Democrat persuasion, have claimed repeatedly that D.C. juries are neutral. And they’ve claimed there’s no evidence of a bias.
But the Epoch Times revealed, “There is now.”
“A survey (pdf) conducted by Triton Polling and Research between Jan. 1-8 and obtained exclusively by The Epoch Times reveals an extreme level of bias among potential jurors living in Washington toward anyone who participated in the protests at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021,” the report states.
The Times documented that 422 “jury eligible residents” people were surveyed, and 27.5% said the protest participants were “insurrectionists.”
Another 13% called them “criminals” and nearly 15% called them “domestic terrorists.”
Nearly 12% called them “traitors.”
The Times revealed, “The overwhelming majority also ‘strongly’ (75 percent) or ‘somewhat agree’ (14.4 percent) that former President Donald Trump is to blame for what happened, and 76.6 percent ‘strongly agree’ that Mr. Trump’s supporters are racists.
Two out of three said the day was “terrorism.”
”After informing survey participants that ‘the penalty for insurrection, treason, or committing an act of domestic terrorism is life imprisonment or death,’ 26.9 percent said they ‘strongly agree’ and 21.1 percent said they ‘somewhat agree’ that those penalties would ‘be a fair punishment for anyone who participated in any of the events of January 6,” the Times reported
Dangerously, 80.1% said they would serve as a juror if called and many said they actually want to be on a jury to make sure defendants are found guilty and punished.
