  1. Tough words, but light sentence…

      @A T not all that Obama pardoned were without controversy. Funny that your crying about sentencing from a liberal judge who followed precedent for the sentencing. Stop being brainwashed by the hateful media. Why don’t the media talk more about the Bernie bros bullying and physical violence. Nope it’s just attack trump 24/7. Can’t you tell me what trump has done to make your life worse or what the dems have done to make it better

    • @Don Williams None were covering up for Obama. Unlike Stone who was convicted of crimes related to covering up for Trump.

    • @Bob Loblaw hmmmm yet Mueller and his Dems for 22 months found none of that. You do realize he was trapped and tricked right? Just like Flynn. That is why any defense lawyer says DO NOT TESTIFY.

    • @Don Williams Read the report! The FACTS are there for all to see. LOL…Trapped and Tricked? LOL…Is that your story? You poor clueless clowns.

  2. 100% disgusting, only 3 years.
    People have been put jail for longer than that for just having a blunt.

    • @Logan McLean that’s fair, nor should those deleted emails sit well with you! Do you feel the same about Trump’s continual disregard for the law and separation of powers as well as the constitution, enriching himself through the office of president?

    • @jays knight king titan I’m not necessarily red or blue. I do have issue with pulling out of the paris agreement, children in cages, constant lying, unsubstantiated boasting, tax breaks for the rich while sky rocketing the deficit without a recession to justify it. the racism, mysoginy the narcissism. The dems on average have much better qualities to be fair. not perfect but not him

      @Barry Walls I’m not red or blue. Obama was putting kids in cages.the Paris deal was not fair to the U.S. . Trumps economy is good. Republicans or Democrats they all take care of the rich. You say dems are better people research the bullying from the Bernie bros so just stop with the nonsense

    • @jays knight king titan When was Obama putting kids in cages? The Paris deal may seem unfair to the US but seeing as per head of capita the US has the highest output of greenhouse gases in the developed world it should be harsher on the US. Trumps economy was growing before he came into office, there is plenty of independent economic reports to verify that if you want to look it up, he was taking credit when one week in office, literally. The US has an issue with big donors to both parties and politics protecting the rich, that why it is time to listen to Bernie(he’s been saying that for 50 years) these are standard policies in Europe, not soviet communism. I’m sure there are some idiots supporting Bernie, he disowned anyone acting like that last night. Trump couldn’t even condemn nazis. I didnt say dems are better people, I said on average have better qualities than the ones I listed for Trump. It’s a big year, all the best to you 🙂

  3. No worries. He will be pardoned. So much for draining that swamp. More like “catch and release”.

    I wonder who is going to make him his butt buddy, maybe trump when he goes to prison . I can only wish

  5. Not nearly enough. He thumbed his nose at the whole government, and now they let him off lightly. A sad look for us.

      @Mkmf why haven’t they been indicted or anything. They lie and you are ok with it why. 40 months is exactly what the sentence should be based of precedent do some research. McCabe comey and company should all be indicted. They lied and have admitted to it.

    • How would you feel if they scared your wife or family with a swat team only to be targeted because you helped the president get elected? The whole Muellur witch hunt started with a fake dossier paid for by hillary and leaked by coney to get a sinced debunked fisa warrants? Meanwhile you have Hillary who destroyed subpoenad e-mails,mcabe admitted to lying at 3 different interviews and a crooked fbi who changed 302 documents and are walking free.The doj is corrupt just like the fbi and the state department.We have so many documents proving all of the corruption.

    • If one of your family lied and they were sentenced to 9 years, you would be OK with that?

    • @jays knight king titan and your post demonstrates your last point precisely.

      @bellamoon .
      Most people do, unless it’s a Democrat! Hilary was exposed colluding with Ukraine & other foreign governments to sway the election in her favor! But Democrats don’t believe it despite the overwhelming evidence!
      James Comey admitted leaking classified government documents hoping to start the special council of Mueller! And despite millions spent, no evidence could be found to support it! Yet he found lots of evidence that Hilary’s actions (or inaction) directly led to American lives lost, & he then found evidence that Hilary & her team destroyed evidence that would be damning to her! But he classified this a bad judgement!
      Yet the FBI & DOJ are exposed in creating false evidence to get timid of Trump & no charges! You’re welcome to disagree! I see the facts as they are played out! Much like I see Biden commuting Quid pro quo with Ukraine, admitting as much on video, & The Democrats twist the he’ll out of a phone call to make it appear that Trump is treasonous!
      Well, you can look at DIRECT evidence, or you can choose to believe twisted evidence! Its your call! But it doesn’t help unite America when you choose to believe that which is not fact!
      Have a great day!

      @Bob Loblaw .
      I agree 100%. It shouldn’t even have been 40 minutes! Or 40 seconds when Comey & McCabe committed the exact same crimes but the DOJ “chose not to proceed with charges”!
      It will take generations for the DOJ to restore any credibility!
      Much like CNN ( the most trusted name I. FAKE NEWS) & MSLSD! ANY credibility they may once have had is far gone & u likely to ever return!
      Tragic!

    • @Robert Ambrose You’re a demented dimwit deplorable who’s too stupid to know what’s going on. You been conned by the criminal con man in the WH.

    • @MilkCow please he an his crew belong under the jail .

  7. You can be sure he wont go to a real prison, if he go’s at all.
    It will be one of those country club prisons for rich white folks.
    No justice, no peace!

  8. 45 is now America’s ‘CHIEF LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER’ – Just like his buddy PUTIN…BARR is just a Puppet

  9. If I would have been his Judge I would have given him 20 years,. And that Donald Dummie Trump’ need 50 years with everything he has done to the American people with no parole Parton..💀

      Trump should get 52 years or more. 152.years. if they dont do a thing. Then you know trump has them bullied. And he laughs like the orange 😈. He is. God forgive the idiots. For they do not know where they. Go.

      They will have to answer to the dear lord. The rich and greedy. Will not enter The gates of heaven. In the bible. Read it.

      @theresa Montoya you must be talking about the Bernie bros who are bullying and beating people up. Man you all are so brainwashed

  10. trump will pardon stone, if only to stick it to the congress.

    • @Carl A you have no need to fear me. im just saying we need to take power away from you until you learn some humility. This whole far-left movement has gone way to far. You lost the middle. Its not even your fault. You just have a lot of bad ideas in your head.

    • @Carl A nice touch with the “sparky” – i gotta give you points for that 😉

    • @Kevin NYC Thank you Sir. Appreciate that.

    • @Kevin NYC Well, we will just have to agree to disagree. Good luck in your life. By the way I fear nothing not even death which we must ALL face. Old Vietnam Vet.

    • @Carl A aah haha the sparky makes more sense now. much respect to you sir, nothing personal i was venting some frustration and it appears it was misplaced. thank you good luck to you as well. The yoda icon makes sense now as well haha. Take Care.

  11. So wonder you got to the judge? 40months is a cop out ,very disappointing .

    • Rod right matters, if you or I was in front of the judge do you think we would get off so lightly, others have got the same sentence for smoking weed, Da!

    • Crystal Giddens | February 20, 2020 at 5:57 PM | Reply

      @Jayne Berkley Juror 1261, we now know, was Tomeka Hart. Her identity would have remained publicly unknown except for a public statement she made after the Department of Justice (DOJ) rescinded its initial sentencing recommendation for Trump confidant Roger Stone. In the midst of the firestorm of allegations of political interference, Hart disclosed that she was the foreperson on the Stone jury and gave a full-throated defense of the trial prosecutors: “It pains me to see the DOJ now interfere with the hard work of the prosecutors.”

      That statement led many people to Google her name, and what they found was a litany of postings not only hostile to President Trump and his administration but also specifically commenting on Stone and his arrest — before she ever appeared for jury duty.

    • Crystal Giddens the defence could have objected to her but they didn’t, also just one of 12 , something like this is constantly in the news and it’s hard to find a juror totally unawares of what’s going on, I still think the sentence for Mr Stone was light, manly because of political pressure and that’s wrong, it’s the last branch of power that should be untouched by pressuring. Thankyou for the info.

      @Jayne Berkley COURT DOCUMENTS: Roger Stone Russian Set-Up Agent Was An FBI Informant Under Mueller
      Mueller clearly did not want to get to the bottom of the evidence that Stone was set up
      Now, court documents obtained by NATIONAL FILE (presented below) show that a Russian national who used the fake name “Henry Greenberg” when meeting with Roger Stone in 2016 admitted under oath to being a longtime FBI informant.
      Mueller clearly did not want to get to the bottom of the evidence that Stone was set up.

  12. Wonder if he will even hear the jail doors close before Trump pardons him?

  13. Barr told Trump he was a King and now he’s gonna abuse his authority in vindicating anyone who supports his corruption. The bifurcated justice system is just about complete. The people lost the economy a long time ago.

  14. Thats weak , he’s a treasonous Traitor to our Democracy , America is headed for Revolution in the streets !!!

    • @88Gibson LesPaul If revolutions are like suicide, does this mean the American Revolution was an act of collective suicide?

    • jays knight king titan | February 20, 2020 at 4:16 PM | Reply

      No revolution is on it’s way. Fyi 40 months is right in line with precedent for sentencing. How about the fact that the judge is a liberal judge not a trump judge. Brainwashed by media. So explain what has trump done to make your life worse and what have the dems done to make it better

    • 88Gibson LesPaul | February 20, 2020 at 4:32 PM | Reply

      @Karin Schultz “Revolution” is a word. But not all “revolutions” are the same. This time, we won’t be fighting THEM. We’ll be fighting US.
      I’m on your side. I don’t want to fight you. Fighting Trumpism is another matter. Trump and the GOP are literally trying to take over the reigns of power in our country. So….. No insults from me and I hope none from you. So far, we’re good!
       
      I’m saying that schools, hospitals, gas stations, post offices, malls, Walmarts, doctor offices, our work places, grocery stores, banks….all will be closed until further notice because employees won’t come in for fear of being killed…if it’s a violent revolution. They’ll burn your homes, cars, everything. There will be something you’ve never seen before in America: mass starvation and refugees.
      We have to thread our way through and avoid violent revolution on the one hand and a Trump dictatorship on the other. Neither must happen.

      @88Gibson LesPaul things aren’t going to change on their own millionaire’s and billionaires have taken control of our gov’t and with the help of Trump appointed judges and the decision in “Citizens United” we have no power……These judges will be on the bench for the next 30-40 years shooting down anything that contest corporate power and control in this country…… and as long as we have money in our politics this will continue the rich will never give up their position they hold ……why do you think the rich is fighting so hard to keep Warren and Sanderson away from the White House instead of just paying their fair share of taxes so it may take a revolution.

  15. Roger stone knows all of Donnie’s dirty secrets and Traitor Trump is desperate for him to keep silent on those secrets.

  16. Hope he gets Epstein’s cell and that he dies “mysteriously” as well.

    It’s not enough _AND_ it’ll be overturned by his accomplice.

  18. Who cares what she said. She let him off!

  19. Trump need and should be in jail with all his associates, and partners in crime.

    I am so sick of this! What a travesty for this country.

    • Catherine Andujar Comey, McCabe, Brennan and Clapper have all lies to Congress and they’re still walking free. That’s the real travesty!
