White House Blasts “Shameful” Mueller Prosecutors in Roger Stone Commutation Statement

 White House Blasts “Shameful” Mueller Prosecutors in Roger Stone Commutation Statement

The White House released a statement Friday night announcing the commutation of the prison sentence of Roger Stone that blasted the Mueller team’s prosecution of Stone. The statement says Trump did not pardon Stone as Stone maintains his innocence and is appealing his conviction.

The statement called the pre-dawn raid by the Mueller team to arrest Stone at his home a “shameful spectacle” and questioned the presence of a CNN news team for the arrest of the 67-year-old Stone.

The commutation comes on the same night as the U.S. Court of Appeals for D.C. rejected Stone’s appeal to delay the start of his 40-month prison sentence that was due to start next week.

Appeals court says NO to Roger Stone’s request for a prison delay.

It’s a 4-page unsigned opinion.

Bottom line: Stone “not legally eligible for further postponement of his reporting date.”

Text of White House statement:

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 evidence that did not exist. As it became clear that these witch hunts would never bear
