A federal judge has ordered a special hearing for today in the Roger Stone case. The longtime Trump adviser and Broward resident is set for sentencing Thursday on seven felony counts including lying to investigators and witness tampering. According to Politico, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson issued the order after prosecutors abruptly quit the case. Also, some legal expert say there is enough evidence of jury bias to warrant a new trial for Roger Stone.
