Good for President Trump

Roger Stone 1

UPDATE: Reports are coming out now that Roger Stone’s sentence has been commuted. .

 

 

President Trump has been hinting for weeks that he might be getting ready to commute long-time political ally Roger Stone’s sentence. Stone was convicted last year of witness tampering and making false statements to Congress during the Mueller investigation. He has been sentenced to three years in prison and is required to report to prison on July 14.

Several news outlets, including Fox News, are reporting that President Trump may announce a commutation for Roger Stone as early as this evening.

A commutation involves a lessening or elimination of jail time, however the recipient’s original conviction is left intact. A presidential pardon erases the conviction completely. Roger Stone, however, has said that he would prefer commutation to a pardon, as accepting a pardon is seen as an admission of guilt.

Although Roger Stone’s conviction stems from the Mueller investigation, neither Stone nor any other American was actually charged with colluding or conspiring with Russian agents.

This is a developing story. We’ll update if and/or when President Trump announces his decision.
