Right from the start, Roger Stone was treated unfairly by the justice system.
A large team of armed FBI agents showed up to his home and arrested him in front of his wife.
The only reason Stone faced any trouble?
Because Democrats pushed the Russian Collusion hoax from the beginning of Trump’s presidency.
President Trump, within his powers as president, saw fit to commute Stone’s sentence and Democrats could not be more displeased.
Here’s tweets from both Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler in response to the commutation:
Nadler also released the following statement on his website:
Today, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and Oversight and Reform Committee Chairwoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) released the following joint statement on President Trump's decision to commute the sentence of Roger Stone:
“The facts are clear: Roger Stone lied to investigators. He threatened to harm a witness to his crimes. A jury of our fellow Americans found him guilty of obstruction of justice. Throughout it all, he promised he would do whatever it takes to avoid telling the truth about the President’s behavior in the 2016 presidential campaign—provided that President Trump protect him from the consequences.
“President Trump’s unprecedented decision to commute the sentence of Roger Stone, an individual that could directly implicate him in criminal misconduct, undermines the rule of law. By this action, President Trump abused the powers of his office in an apparent effort to reward Roger Stone for his refusal to cooperate with investigators examining the President’s own conduct. No other president has exercised the clemency power for such a patently personal and self-serving purpose.
“This transparently corrupt commutation damages public confidence in the justice system and the rule of law. Among other things, we intend to seek an immediate briefing from the White House Counsel on the circumstances surrounding Roger Stone’s commutation. In addition, the Department of Justice should release grand jury materials related to Roger Stone and his communications with the President.
“Republican tolerance of the President’s disregard for the rule of law has helped bring us to this moment. This is a powerful reminder that Donald Trump has little respect for law and order, no matter how much he tweets about it.”
Suffice it to say, Schiff and Nadler are just trying to get their spotlight in the media again.
Ever since the impeachment debacle ended, they haven't been asked to appear on MSNBC and CNN everyday and they're clearly upset about that.
Take a look at other Twitter reactions to the commutation of Stone's sentence:
President Trump, on his way to Miami, also answered questions from reporters on the matter:
Read today's earlier report from Fox News on Stone's commutation:
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.”
“These charges were the product of recklessness borne of frustration and malice,” she said.
McEnany touted Stone’s career in politics, noting that he worked for nearly 50 years as a consultant for high-profile Republican politicians, including former President Ronald Reagan, Sen. Bob Dole and others, while noting that Stone is also known for "his outspoken support for President Donald J. Trump and opposition to Hillary Clinton."
McEnany went on to blast Mueller’s prosecutors for the fashion in which they arrested Stone, noting he is a “67 year old man with numerous medical conditions, who had never been convicted of another crime, and that they used “dozens of FBI agents with automatic weapons and tactical equipment, armored vehicles, and an amphibious unit to execute a pre-dawn raid of his home, where he was with his wife of many years.”
McEnany went on to add that Stone would “be put at serious medical risk in prison.”
Schiff and Nadler clearly aren't happy, which must make it a great thing that Mr. Stone is now a free man!
