Trump Commutes Roger Stone’s Prison Sentence: What You Need To Know 1


President Donald Trump commuted Roger Stone’s sentence days before Stone was to report to prison on charges of obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements. Stone was convicted for lying about his contacts with WikiLeaks during the 2016 campaign. Trump was rumored to have been considering a pardon, which would have ‘wiped the slate clean’ for his former aide, but instead issued the commutation Friday night.

  1. Not only do I want to see Trump defeated in November, I want to see him spend the rest of his life in prison. 🙂

      @shane danielson Choose the US or choose Trump/Putin.

      Don’t just get out and vote… get out and vote BLUE… at least for now.

    • @65Lkhj Lkhj65 do your research. Holder himself said he was Obama’s wingman. Also multiple Obama officials plead the fifth amendment to Congress so I can not wrap my head around this sudden outrage after the last administration did what it did! Orange man bad is a symptom of Trump derangement syndrome, the cure os due diligence and research. Good luck. TRUMP 2020

    tRump and the Republicans are destroying America faster than any hurricane over the entire globe could do to us.

  7. Trump had to save Stone from going to prison. Trump knows that Stone is aware of many of his crimes, because Stone helped him commit them, and he also knew that there was a very good chance that Stone was going to spill the beans on him to avoid going to prison.

  8. Trump is corruption on steroids. Nixon’s ghost can finally rest in peace, for Nixon is no longer the most corrupt president in American history. Trump’s face belongs on the Mt Rushmore of corruption….all by itself. We have an overt criminal in the Oval Office, operating in the open, for the world to see. At this point, they should just surround the entire White House with yellow police tape, and declare the whole thing a crime scene.

      @Semper Fortis I’m happy to report that unless Russia, China and Trump actively engage in voter suppression, gerrymandering, and outright voter fraud, BIDEN, as flawed as he is, will win, as a stopgap until someone else as decent as Bernie becomes President. Trump and his cohorts will be imprisoned or taken out by Iran. It will take time, but eventually the US might come back from it’s near death experience.

      @NullReferenceException Yes indeed. You forgot Afghanistan, Lybia, Iraq, Syria, Palestine, Yemen, Vietnam and all other OCCUPYING, violent regime change wars. The US US THE WORST!!! They’ve got Venezuela and Iran on their list now.

      @Cliff Medina Where is your proof? Last I checked, there was an investigation into and found no evidence of “spying”. Court approved wire traps to investigate election fraud, but not “spying”. And tRump will stand trial for election fraud and obstruction of justice charges in January. The indictments are already to be handed down the minute he becomes a private citizen. tRump is the unnamed defendant in the Cohen case.

    The Supreme Court says no one is above the law. What’s going on America.

      @CONFIDENTIAL Siberia how much does George Soros pay you with your witless lies and intended discouragement?
      No matter what happens in this election, with all the fraud on steroids being activated by your team,
      they will never be winners no matter how much power they have by their ill-gotten gains, they are without honor and no one wants them in charge so they can only prevail by cheating to create that illusion.

      The Communists Lenin said that socialism is the same thing as communism but they cannot call it communism until they have the power.
      If you believe what you just said, you are a baby.

      There is such a streak of viciousness in you like a cornered rat willing to do or say anything to escape his despicable condition.

      @Jay Johnson just like Hitler only unless and until it catches up with him.

      @outdoor fun Ohhh, so anyone who disagrees with you is a leftist…but that’s correct, when you are so far right that fascism is a leftist idea, then everyone is a leftist. You do know tRump represents about 25% of the voting public? The other 15 percent that support him are arch conservatives. Any one from the moderate right to the far left opposes his ideas and policies? That explains why his approval rating has NEVER been above 45%.

    • @Daniel Bramer Keep believing in your force fed programming right up till election day. Hahaha.

      @outdoor fun It’s hilarious they want to bring up the fact that *Obama commuted anyone with a THC crime as Cannabis was becoming legal in 2 of the 51states at the time and compare their crimes to Roger Stone….No there’s no comparison!*

  17. I would love to hear what the Jurors are thinking.

  18. Give the prison time Trump commuted from Stone’s sentence to Trump when “We the People” lock him up and throw away the keys

  19. When you elect a crook, this is what you get, a crook allowing another crook to get off. Criminals, all of them!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • You’re right Obama’s administration was full of crook’s…..all of them….

    • Yea and the donald is an especially arrogant one.

    • @Stone Men Name one that was going to federal prison but Obama commuted or pardoned the sentence before s/he even spent one single day of punishment for the crimes committed.
      Trump and all the other republicons are going down in a landslide of votes against them.

    • @fhj 52 Wow only a dumdum would like their own comments………pathetic.

  20. There’s a reason Roger Stone looks like Lucifer in human form.
