Good decision by President Trump. Now Roger Stone is less likely to rat out Donnie.

i agree with the decision to commute the sentence of Roger Stone. Please be aware that a commutation is not a pardon. Stone is now able to continue the appeals process, had the sentence been pardoned this would not have been the case.

"On Friday, July 10th, President Trump commuted Roger Stone’s prison sentence. The clemency order, not to be confused with a pardon, allows Stone to fight in the appeals court to clear his name against what many consider a legal railroading. Friends of Stone claim that Trump had offered a pardon only to be rebuffed by Stone who asked for clemency to remain out of jail as he fights through the appeals court."

Stone was guilty.....of being a friend of Trump. That is enough to get you sentenced to prison while others, who have committed much greater crimes, aren't even charged.

McCabe lied to the FBI 3 times I think?

Hillary destroyed 33.000 subpoenaed emails and no big deal... Trump would been long gone.

Comey and Clapper lied to Congress

But this guy gets his home raided in the middle of the night with CNN at the ready. What a joke.

Robert Mueller wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post this morning:

"Congress also investigated and sought information from Stone. A jury later determined he lied repeatedly to members of Congress. He lied about the identity of his intermediary to WikiLeaks. He lied about the existence of written communications with his intermediary. He lied by denying he had communicated with the Trump campaign about the timing of WikiLeaks' releases. He in fact updated senior campaign officials repeatedly about WikiLeaks. And he tampered with a witness, imploring him to stonewall Congress," Mueller wrote in the op-ed posted Saturday evening.


Stone's crime was not being a friend of Trump.

Well, that's just a lovely distraction. Were any of those people convicted by a jury? No. It's just you wanting them to be guilty in the court of public opinion.

The commutation actually does more than that. Had Stone been pardoned, he could have been forced to testify, in a potential court case, against Trump, revealing all of the dirt he knew. A commutation keeps his conviction current, so that he cannot be forced to testify against himself.

While Democrats are obsessing about an old, at-risk man getting to spend his remaining years at home, they totally ignore the California governor releasing thousands of hardened criminals in his state to prevent them from getting Coronavirus. Watch crime rise there to Chicago and NYC levels.

We know why they were not convicted because there is a clear double standard. My question to you is, why? If Trump destroyed 33,000 emails and lied to congress, do you think he would get the same pass Hillary got? Of course not.
