WATCH: Tucker Carlson Argues Roger Stone Judge Amy Berman Jackson ‘Deserves to be Impeached,’ Calls Her ‘Democratic Activist Wearing Robes’

Fox News host Tucker Carlson called for U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson to impeached for her handling of the Roger Stone trial during Thursday night’s episode of “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Carlson referred to the Obama-appointed judge as a “Democratic activist wearing robes.”

“Stone’s sentence was delivered by an Obama-appointed judge called Amy Berman Jackson,” Carlson said. “You often hear people say that our justice system has been infected by politics. Amy Berman Jackson is living proof that it has been. She’s an open partisan who has so flagrantly violated the bounds of Constitutional law and fairness that it’s shocking she’s still on the bench. If there’s anyone in Washington who deserves to be impeached, it’s Amy Berman Jackson.”

“If there’s anyone in Washington that deserves to be impeached, it’s Amy Berman Jackson,” he continued, noting her similarly harsh treatment of Rick Gates and Paul Manafort.

“Jackson wanted to punish Gates and Manafort before they were even convicted of anything, and she did. Ultimately she revoked Manafort’s bail and placed him in jail in solitary confinement. But Jackson reserved her real fury for Roger Stone,” claimed Carlson. “At sentencing today, she declared that Stone was ‘prosecuted for covering up for the president.’ Now, CNN let the claim pass without comment, but anybody who had been watching was baffled because that’s totally untrue.”

Carlson also blasted the judge for the gag-order she placed on Stone that many believe violated his First Amendment rights.

“The entire Democratic Party and their servants in the press can defame Stone at will, and they are relentlessly, but if Stone dares to express his own opinion, Amy Berman Jackson will send him to jail immediately,” said Carlson. “She’s banned him from speaking publicly about the case in any way. He can’t tweet or write on Facebook. No social media. He can’t do television, he can’t speak to reporters. He cannot even express himself indirectly. If Roger Stone asked a friend or family member to deliver a statement on his behalf, he would be violating Judge Jackson’s order.”

“What you’re watching is the capricious authoritarianism of a Democratic activist wearing robes. It’s terrifying,” he said.

Carlson called on President Trump to pardon Stone, asserting that “this farce must end.”
