President Trump Commutes Roger Stone’s Sentence

| July 12, 2020

The moment before the unfairness towards Roger Stone ramps up. (r/The_Donald/The Donald Win)

After his conviction, Roger Stone was ordered to report to prison. However, President Trump commuted his sentence. President Trump signed an Executive Grant of Clemency to counter that unjust sentencing. Roger Stone’s arrest, prosecution, trial, etc., were unfair. Roger Stone is still looking for a fair trail in order to be cleared by the courts. Democrats are naturally spinning this to make it look like he is benefiting in a way that the rest of us wouldn’t.

From Fox News:

McEnany touted Stone’s career in politics, noting that he worked for nearly 50 years as a consultant for high-profile Republican politicians, including former President Ronald Reagan, Sen. Bob Dole and others, while noting that Stone is also known for “his outspoken support for President Donald J. Trump and opposition to Hillary Clinton.”

McEnany went on to blast Mueller’s prosecutors for the fashion in which they arrested Stone, noting he is a “67 year old man with numerous medical conditions, who had never been convicted of another crime, and that they used “dozens of FBI agents with automatic weapons and tactical equipment, armored vehicles, and an amphibious unit to execute a pre-dawn raid of his home, where he was with his wife of many years.”

McEnany went on to add that Stone would “be put at serious medical risk in prison.”

Stone was set to report to prison on July 14 to serve 40 months. He was sentenced in February to more than three years in prison after being convicted in November 2019 on seven counts of obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements to Congress. Stone, however, has appealed his conviction and continues to deny any wrongdoing.

“He has appealed his conviction and is seeking a new trial. He maintains his innocence and has stated that he expects to be fully exonerated by the justice system,” McEnany said. “Mr. Stone, like every American, deserves a fair trial and every opportunity to vindicate himself before the courts.”

    One more fake news story that the dims can use to throw rocks at Trump. How many others have been “pardoned” by various and sundry past POTUSes? Seems like one of BJ Willy’s is a convicted terrorist heading up an organization whose stated object is the overthrow and or destruction of the United States. Just one glaring example. I don’t believe that there has been one single example of a Presidential Pardon that wasn’t controversial. Hell, the one that Andrew Johnson and Sam Grant gave to Bobby Lee was lost in a file for over a hundred years, just to keep it from being delivered.

    The spapos seagull must be screaming bloody murder that he can’t quite get in here to scream, “ORANGE MAN BAD!!!!!”

      0bama commuted the sentences of over 1300 people; Trump has done ten.

      • rgr769 says:

        Correction: The Lightworker’s number of commutations is over 1,700. 1,715 to be exact. One of them was the female domestic Marxist terrorist he released from the federal pound after she had only served 16 years of a fifty six year sentence.

    I’m sure that the snowflake left will be going batshit about that while ignoring Pardons and commutations of past POTUSes, namely the most recent. I know that AW1Ed has his reasons for moderating Major Moonbat, but I too would get a kick out of seeing what he’d screech about this, I can picture him jumping up and down with steam blowing out of his ears over this! As for Roger Stone, I’m betting that he was railroaded by deep state scumbags for not rolling over and shitting on President Trump like they wanted him to, ditto with LTG (Ret.) Flynn!

      I do not miss the shitposts one bit.

      LC contributed to discussions here, as do others. It’s a discussion.

      Poo-flinging howler monkeys and carpet-bombing seagulls do not.

      Past commutations were mentioned earlier on Fox but I missed the bottom scroll line with names of past Presidents and the number of peeps they commuted. clinton’s name came up for commuting one of the FLAN members plus obamas commutations. The other third political party whic is the lame street media is going crazy and I think macaroni Muller may get involved. Even some of Trumps own people think that he made a mistake commuting Stone. Yesterday, I mentioned the Fergussen effect about LEO’s slowing down on domestics, gun runs and staying away from traffic stops and then yesterday, 2 Officers were killed on the scene of a domestic call.

      • rgr769 says:

        Over 1300 by the Black Jesus; but that was during eight years. Billy Jeff did 61, per Fox News.

      I miss Lars expertise at the double spaced rant.

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        I always saw it as a window into how thoroughly liberal cultists are brainwashed as well as what they’re conditioned/programmed to say in response to those who dissent with them!

  3. Ex-PH2 says:

    Aside from not being a Dumbocrap, I’m still not sure what Stone did wrong. I guess it’s easy to pick on someone you think is weak and vulnerable. That seems an awful lot like the kids on the playground in grade school to me.

    • rgr769 says:

      Mulear’s bent lawers claimed Stone lied to Congress when Stone denied he was in contact with Wikileaks regarding the Hillary/DNC emails. They also convicted him of witness tampering when he told a pal he didn’t have to talk to the Fan Belt Inspectors investigating him.

      • LC says:

        They also convicted him of witness tampering when he told a pal he didn’t have to talk to the Fan Belt Inspectors investigating him.

        Had he just said, “You don’t need to talk to the FBI”, that might’ve been the end of it. But when Credico said he would, Stone started by implying he’d do something to his service dog, then elevated it by saying ‘prepare to die cock sucker’. So, yeah, totally the same as just suggesting he needn’t talk to the FBI.

        Weren’t you a lawyer? Lemme guess, you represented organized crime?

        “Your Honor, when my client told the witness he’d ‘sleep with the fishes’ if he didn’t do the task, he simply meant he’d buy him an aquarium for his bedroom!”

        Stone remains a convicted criminal, and rightly so.

        • rgr769 says:

          No, I represented cretins like you who got their asses sued in civil court because they didn’t think the contract they signed meant what it said. I also sued for cretins like you for various reasons. But I will tell you who did represent very organized criminals: Stone’s trial judge, Amy Berman Jackson; she unsuccessfully defended D-rat Congressman William Jefferson. He was the one caught with about a $100K in bribery cash in his freezer. He was sentenced to 17 years and disbarred, but he only served about four or five years. She also defended Hillary from the families of her Benghazi victims; Jackson also would likely have defended her from the many hundreds of violations of our classified information statutes for her transmission of same over her unsecure private email system, but for your D-rat ilk in the DOJ and FBI.

          And I read Credico said he didn’t take those comments seriously and they had no impact upon him. But apparently for you, like most Progs, perjury, fraud, and national security classified information crimes are okay for anyone with a (D) after their names. Go away, you aren’t even a leg; you never wore a uniform, unless we are counting Cub Scouts.

    • rgr769 says:

      Just a few relevant factoids for those not aware of some of the details of Roger Stone’s case: He was tried in the District of Criminals by a jury drawn from its voter rolls. In the 2016 general election, over 90% of those voting in the district voted for Hillary Clinton. The judge is a libtard who likely supported Clinton and was appointed by 0bama. She was assigned to the cases of most of those charged by Mule-ear’s crew in the DC court, including Manafort and Rick Gates. She denied Stone’s motion for new trial despite the fact that the forewoman was a self-avowed Trump hater and who crowed on Fakebook or Twatter about how great it was when Stone was arrested in a counter-terrorist style paramilitary take-down, a la the exclusive CNN video.

      • 11B-Mailclerk says:

        We were not supposed to know that!

      • 26Limabeans says:

        “Stone was arrested in a counter-terrorist style paramilitary take-down”

        And that’s where they lost all credibility, making him a victim instead.

  4. Slow Joe says:

    “seven counts of obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements to Congress.”

    Did he do any of that?

  5. Anonymous says:

    Stone was an outspoken GOP pundit (BS artist) in leftard Blue State hellhole NYC and he got convicted of not remembering exactly to whom he BS-ed about what 3 years before and telling some guy, after he testified before Congress, that he shouldn’t lie. Y’all do the Math.

  6. Mason says:

    Should have been a full pardon, but I understand if Stone wouldn’t want one. Accepting a pardon is, if I understand it correctly, requires an admission of guilt.

    • rgr769 says:

      By not pardoning him, Stone can proceed with his appeal.

      • Mason says:

        That too. I can see wanting to clear your name. Maybe he’s got sights on a civil lawsuit if he gets cleared. Me? I’d be inclined to take the pardon and move on with my life.

  7. Wireman611 says:

    OK, a political conviction. Sounds like something a communist or NAZI run country would do. I’m a little worried.

  8. Sapper3307 says:

    “ReEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!”
    CNN

  9. Green Thumb says:

    Don’t love Stone and not a fan of the pardon but sitting Presidents have the authority and executive privilege.

    All of them (Presidents) have done this (pardon friends) in the past.

    Nothing new here.

    LC, I hope you realize that, as an active criminal defense attorney, I have stolen your line:

    “Your Honor, when my client told the witness he’d ‘sleep with the fishes’ if he didn’t do the task, he simply meant he’d buy him an aquarium for his bedroom!”
