President Trump has commuted the sentence of Roger Stone just days before Stone was to begin serving a 40-month sentence.

According to Fox News:

The White House announced Friday that President Trump signed an Executive Grant of Clemency commuting the “unjust sentence” of Roger Stone, just days before the longtime political operative was slated to report to prison to serve more than three years for charges stemming from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

In a lengthy statement released late Friday, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said the president had made the decision to commute Stone’s sentence “in light of the egregious facts and circumstances surrounding his unfair prosecution, arrest, and trial.”

“Roger Stone is a victim of the Russia Hoax that the Left and its allies in the media perpetuated for years in an attempt to undermine the Trump Presidency,” McEnany said in a statement Friday night. “There was never any collusion between the Trump Campaign, or the Trump Administration, with Russia.  Such collusion was never anything other than a fantasy of partisans unable to accept the result of the 2016 election.  The collusion delusion spawned endless and farcical investigations, conducted at great taxpayer expense, looking for evidence that did not exist.”

McEnany added that Mueller’s office “resorted to process-based charges leveled at high-profile people in an attempt to manufacture the false impression of criminality lurking below the surface.”

The thought was always that the charges were brought in an attempt to get Stone to become a witness against Trump. Something he never did and openly fought against.

  1. I think the President made a fair decision,,,,cause I don’t believe he had a fair trial either….

  2. Mr. President, thank you from the Patriotic Americans, throughout this great Country.
    The Mueller farce needed to be called out for what it really was. A scam and a Witch Hunt!
    Now pardon Paul Manafort and any other lives that were ruined financially by the democommie shams!
