On Friday night, President Trump commuted the prison sentence of former campaign advisor Roger Stone.

Stone, 67, was scheduled to serve nearly three and a half years in prison as a result of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

He was due to report to prison on July 14th.

The White House released the following statement from the President after commuting Stone’s sentence:

“Roger Stone has already suffered greatly. He was treated very unfairly, as were many others in this case. Roger Stone is now a free man!”

 

Roger Stone said President Trump saved his life, per NBC News:

“The president has saved my life,” Stone said, “And he’s given me the opportunity to fight for vindication.”

He previously had said that any period in a federal prison would amount to a death sentence, given the coronavirus pandemic and his health problems. “I’m 67 years old. I had very, very severe asthma as a child. If you look at the profile of those who are most at risk, I think I fit that,” he said earlier.

While he expressed his gratitude for Trump’s decision, Stone says it didn’t come as a shock.

“Well I was, I was elated,” he said Friday night outside his Fort Lauderdale, Florida, home surrounded by onlookers. “Obviously I was somewhat relieved, but I was not surprised.”

Fox News Legal Analyst Gregg Jarrett called Trump’s actions “courageous” and stated the evidence against Stone was “weak”.

Some Congressional Republicans — including Jim Jordan — applauded Trump’s commutation of Stone’s sentence:

 

On the other hand, some congressional Democrats were less than happy about Trump’s move.

Congressman Adam Schiff tweeted, “Trump just commuted Roger Stone’s sentence. Stone lied and intimidated witnesses to hide Trump’s exploitation of the Russian hack of his opponent’s campaign. With Trump there are now two systems of justice in America: One for Trump’s criminal friends and one for everyone else.”

Senator and failed presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren said Trump “has abandoned the rule of law and made a mockery of our democracy. He is truly the most corrupt president in history.”

Clearly those Democrat morons have forgotten the slew of commutations and pardons issued by their god Barack during his reign of ineptitude that ended in treasonous acts against an incoming and duly elected President and his staff.
But then, being forgetful isn’t that difficult when you have difficulty walking and chewing gum simultaneously.

So glad you did this president Trump. Mueller and his group, Schiff, Pelosi, Schumer should be in prison for their false impeachment trial that cost the taxpayers millions. The wrong people get persecuted seemingly all the time, Sick of the wrong people being accused. Democrats are brutal, liars, mean spirited, they will pay, God watches!!!

Donald Trump came out swinging from the day one, showing the media to be FRAUDULANT and fake news and so many that don’t like the man, to be also fraudulant! That’s OK, because, I KNOW, that there is a GOD in Heaven, who’s Name is Jesus, that has “ORDAINED” this man to be in the office he now holds. See Psalms 75:6-7 as well as Romans 13:1 and Colossians 1:16 for Proof! This being the case, there is NOT one thing that can be done, but that GOD Almighty will have HIS way, NO matter what that way is, in this matter of the office of president!

President Trump commutes the sentence of a person that was railroaded, and the media crucifies him. The left loving illegal president odicktaster pardoned, commuted, or reduced sentence on 1715 convicts. 330 of them on or near his final day in office. Where was that outcry? All of these people were hardcore criminals, mostly black.
WHERE WAS THE OUTRAGE FROM THE MEDIA? President Trump PARDONED the sentence of a black Lady that drove a getaway car in a heist and was unfairly sentenced to LIFE IN PRISON. He was praised, now he commutes
the sentence of a guy that was clearly innocent and is getting RIPPED by the communist media.
I can certainly see how the leftist moron communist loving media and soros mobs have a reason…NOT. God, I HATE LIBTARD COMMUNISTS and their GROUP THINK, as they must FOLLOW THE COLLECTIVE and aren’t allowed a single thought of there own. The STEPFORD RATS.

Democrat presidents commute sentences of terrorists and murders (Clinton, Obama) and are cheered by Democrats. Trump commutes the corrupt sentence of Roger Stone (railroaded by Obama’s FBI and politicized judge) and is excoriated.
The divide between Communist and Constitutionalist has never been more clear. A hundred years of “progressive” (“progress beyond gov’t limits of Constitution”) indoctrination and encroachment (Wilson, Roosevelt, Carter, Obama) is now bearing its familiar fruit: violence, corruption, destruction, death.
Against all opponents, Trump has delivered a stay against the onslaught that culminated in the Obama/Clinton reign. Who else could stand, and continue to stand, against the full broadsides of politicized judges and a politicized FBI, DOJ, IRS, and CIA?
We stand here, seemingly helpless against (viral videos of) Black gangs (BLM) killing police and beating Whites at random, and White gangs (AntiFA) taking over cities and businesses, burning and looting at will.
2020 far surpasses the cultural destruction by Democrats (“I don’t care that much about statues – People will do what they do” ~ smiling Pelosi) even by 1968 standards.
The enemy is in place — in cells, in movements, in Congress, in city and state governments across the nation –waiting for the tipping point. We may well be right there this summer/fall/November.
If Joe Biden wins (“by whatever means necessary”) then Sanders-AOC-Tlaib-Pressley-Marxists will literally change our nation forever. As soon, that is, as they can rid the country of their greatest opponents: conservative Constitutionalists, especially Christians.

Roger Stone is a brash outspoken loyal supporter of DJT and God bless him! Stone is his own man, he stood unafraid in front of a deck, of liberals, stacked against him knowing he had been chosen to be sacrificed and used as a tool to destroy DJT! The Dems didn’t care how they did it, the Obama controlled intel community followed orders, they tricked people into lying and blackmailed people, they indicted and convicted people who would not lie and cooperate in their quest to take down DJT! The Dems will do anything to anyone anytime to acheive their “vision” and we all know what the vision is, don’t we?
Jails and prisons have released violent prisoners and criminals because of COVID-19 and they were going to send Roger Stone to prison because he would not lie so the Dems could destroy DJT! Seriously?
Hooray President Trump! Once again you have done the right thing by commuting Roger Stone’s sentence!
