  • Robert Mueller Breaks His Silence and Chimes in on Stone's Sentence Being Commuted

    Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Saturday penned an OpEd in the Washington Post, slamming President Donald Trump's decision to commute Roger Stone's sentence. According to Mueller, even though Stone's sentence has been commuted, he "remains a convicted felon, and rightly so." Mueller has repeatedly said his report speaks for itself, calling it his "testimony." It's why he refused to comment any further, until this opinion piece. Even during his testimony in front of Congress, Mueller remained rather tight-lipped to avoid straying away from the report's conclusions. "The work of the special counsel’s office — its report, indictments, guilty pleas...
  • Trump Spares Stone from Imprisonment, Sparking Howls from Amnesiac Democrats

    Bill Clinton pardoned his own brother for felony distribution of cocaine. And a key witness in the Whitewater scandal for which he and Hillary Clinton were under investigation. And three others convicted in independent counsel Ken Starr’s probe. And Marc Rich, in what was a straight up political payoff. And his CIA director. And his HUD secretary. And eight people convicted in an investigation of his Agriculture Department. No surprise there: The Clintons and their supporters then, like Trump and his supporters now, regarded the special-prosecutor probes into the administration as witch hunts. Clinton also commuted the sentences of convicted...

    Former special counsel Robert Mueller, in a very rare move, has written an op-ed for The Washington Post defending his office's prosecution of Roger Stone and saying he is still a convicted felon and "rightly so" in light of President Donald Trump's commutation of Stone.
  • Joy Reid Regular: Biden Should Pardon All 78,000 'Non-Violent' Drug Criminals

    That should make a great bumper sticker: Vote Biden--He'll Pardon 78,000 Drug Criminals! Seriously, do hyper-partisan liberals believe they're doing Biden any favors with their extremist proposals for what he should do in office? Take Elie Mystal, a Joy Reid regular, on her MSNBC show on Saturday. Commenting on President Trump's commutation of Roger Stone's sentence, Mystal suggested that to "show Republicans," on his first day in office Biden should pardon all 78,000 "non-violent" federal drug criminals. How many of these "non-violent" offenders in fact have a history of violence? How many would go on to commit violence once released,...

    As expected, President Donald Trump commuted the sentence of Roger Stone Friday evening. – Naturally, liberals, leftists, socialist, Marxists and fascists – but I repeat myself – went nuts on Twitter. Here’s an example: The person who wrote that drivel is actually a “legal analyst” for NBC News. Now you know why nothing NBC reports about legal matters is right. The morning of November 4 is going to be a really bad time for this guy, as he wakes up and realizes that he still has four more years of President Donald Trump to go. Look, Roger Stone is not...

    What are Freepers thoughts on Julian Assange? Barr's DOJ want him extradited to face espionage charges for allegedly publishing classified material. It's likely he will face a rigged trial in DC (Maybe under Berman Jackson!) and won't have a hope in defending himself which he is entitled to. He could face the rest of his life behind bars under this arcane espionage law. It does not sit right with me. Thoughts?
  • Statement from the Press Secretary Regarding Executive Grant of Clemency for Roger Stone, Jr.

    Today, President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive Grant of Clemency commuting the unjust sentence of Roger Stone, Jr.   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.  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...

    House Democrats reacted furiously to President Trump’s Friday move to commute the prison sentence of political operative Roger Stone -- demanding an investigation and even legislation to stop similar commutations happening again. “President Trump’s decision to commute the sentence of top campaign advisor Roger Stone, who could directly implicate him in criminal misconduct, is an act of staggering corruption,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said in a statement on Saturday. She went on to promise that Congress would “take action” to prevent future such commutations: “Legislation is needed to ensure that no President can pardon or commute the sentence of...

    President Donald Trump commuted the prison sentence of his longtime friend and political adviser Roger Stone on Friday, days before Stone was required to begin his 40-month prison term for lying to Congress about the Trump campaign's ties to WikiLeaks. The extraordinary act of clemency was announced by White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany. She released a lengthy statement that was littered with lies and false claims about the Russia investigation, special counsel Robert Mueller and the details of Stone's legal case....

    American ^ | July 11, 2020 | Grant Baker
    On Friday, July 10th, President Trump commuted Roger Stone’s prison sentence. The clemency order, not to be confused with a pardon, allows Stone to fight in the appeals court to clear his name against what many consider a legal railroading. Friends of Stone claim that Trump had offered a pardon only to be rebuffed by Stone who asked for clemency to remain out of jail as he fights through the appeals court. The decision to grant clemency came after a series of revelations which proved that Mueller’s team of prosecutors had tampered with evidence, manufactured statements, and buried exonerating evidence...

    During an interview that took place before it was formally announced that President Trump is commuting Roger Stone’s prison sentence broadcast on Friday’s edition of CNN’s “AC360,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) stated that giving Stone clemency is “a terrible idea” and “appalling.” Pelosi also stated that Congress should pass legislation so that presidents are legally restricted from pardoning anyone who commits a crime “that is caused by protecting the president, which this was.”

    Roger Stone is asking a federal appeals court to delay the date when he has to report to prison to begin serving his 40-month sentence. A federal judge last week granted him a short delay, to July 14 after Stone cited coronavirus concerns. But late Monday Stone’s lawyers asked the D.C. Court of Appeals to delay his reporting date to Sept. 3. “He is at considerable risk from serious health consequences, including death, if his surrender date is not extended,” Stone’s motion says. The judge “failed to give adequate deference to the government’s uniform policy not to oppose surrender date...

    Detention in a federal prison in Jesup, GA, amounts to a “virtual death sentence,” said Roger Stone on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Saturday with special guest host Ed Martin, referencing his age and health. “I’m looking at a virtual death sentence in two weeks,” declared Stone, of his prison sentence scheduled to begin on July 14. “Wayne County has five hundred employees who work in the correctional facility. The infection rate in Wayne County today is 25 percent of the the population and growing.” Stone continued, “There’s no use of masks or gloves in [Federal Correctional Institution, Jesup]. There is no...
