Same here.

In my opinion, jury tampering is only a valid charge if he handed out the pamphlets only to specific juror(s) for purposes of influencing the verdict in specific case(s).

Even then it is covered by the First Amendment. Why? It’s not germane to the facts of the specific case. It’s no different then telling jurors that 2+2 is 4.

Exactly how I see it. If they cannot prove he was targeting specific jurors, I honestly do not know how they think they have a case. I think this is intimidation and if he calls them on the bluff, eventually they will have no choice but to blink. And if I were him, I’d ask for a jury trial. :)
