Trump Cries Foul As Court Throws The Book At Roger Stone
The president is claiming that Roger Stone was unjustly convicted by a biased jury. Stone is a political consultant, strategist, and lobbyist. He usually helps Republicans win elections. But it appears his opposition research went a little too far this time as the courts claim he tried to reach out to WikiLeaks to get more information about leaked emails.
“Roger Stone, who was famously arrested at gunpoint in a pre-down raid at his Florida home in January (video below), was found guilty by a federal jury on all seven counts Friday. All of the charges were so-called “process crimes,” crimes committed during the judicial process, in this case the special counsel investigation into alleged “collusion” between the Trump campaign and Russia for which Robert Mueller ultimately found no evidence. Stone was convicted of five counts of lying to Congress, one count of witness tampering and one count of obstructing a Congressional committee, all related to his attempts to reach out to WikiLeaks in 2016 to get more information on the leaked Democratic emails.”
Trump claimed this was a biased conviction as numerous Dems have broken the law and been overlooked, meanwhile they throw the book at Stone.
“So they now convict Roger Stone of lying and want to jail him for many years to come. Well, what about Crooked Hillary, Comey, Strzok, Page, McCabe, Brennan, Clapper, Shifty Schiff, Ohr & Nellie, Steele & all of the others, including even Mueller himself? Didn’t they lie?….”
….A double standard like never seen before in the history of our Country?”
Watch The Clip Below.
“According to prosecutors, Stone failed to turn over documents to Congress in 2017, showing he had sought to reach WikiLeaks the previous year, and lied about five facts, obscuring his attempt to use intermediaries to get information that could help then-candidate Trump in the election against Hillary Clinton,” CNN explains. “WikiLeaks had released emails in July 2016 that the Russians had hacked from Democratic Party servers, and followed up with drops of emails stolen from the Clinton campaign’s chairman in October 2016, continuing until Election Day.”
“While Stone faces a maximum sentence of 50 years, as an obstruction charge carries a maximum of 20 years and lying to Congress carries a potential of five years each, he will likely be sentenced with far lower time since he is a first offender.”
Stone could still appeal the verdict, or Trump could pardon him. It is far more likely that he will end up with a slap on the wrist than anywhere near 50 years.
