‘A Free Man’: Trump commutes longtime friend Roger Stone’s prison term

by the owl speaks

President Donald Trump commuted his longtime friend and strategist Roger Stone’s sentence on Friday, freeing him from jail after being convicted of lying under oath to lawmakers investigating Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election.

Trump’s decision to suspend Stone ‘s sentence just days before he was expected to return to prison represented the most assertive action by the Republican President to shield an acquaintance in a criminal case and his first use of presidential clemency to help an ally. Democrats have condemned the move by Trump as an attack on the rule of law.
