The Deep State strikes again.
Roger Stone has been sentenced to 40 months in prison, and even had his first amendment rights taken away by the Judge to where he couldn’t even talk about the case filed against him.
The Following is from our friends at Breitbart.com
Stone was convicted in November on seven criminal counts, including making false statements to Congress regarding his communications with WikiLeaks during the 2016 presidential election, tampering with witness Randy Credico, and obstructing the House investigation into the president’s now-debunked coordination with Russia.
The sentencing comes after President Trump repeatedly criticized an initial recommendation by the Department of Justice that Stone receive at least seven years in jail, calling it a “miscarriage of justice.” Following the recommendation, Attorney General William Barr called for a reduction in suggested prison time against the Republican political operative, leading to four prosecutors removing themselves from the case. In an interview with ABC News, Barr batted away speculation that he had been directed by the White House to personally involve himself in the case.
It is unclear whether President Trump will pardon Stone. Earlier Thursday, he tweeted a clip of Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson stating that the president could end the “travesty” of the case. “Democrats will become unhinged if Trump pardons Stone, but they’re unhinged anyway,” Carlson said in a Wednesday segment. “What has happened to Roger Stone should never happen to anyone in this country of any political party. It’s completely immoral, it’s wrong. Fixing it is the right thing to do.”
President Trump later tweeted: ““They say Roger Stone lied to Congress.” @CNN OH, I see, but so did Comey (and he also leaked classified information, for which almost everyone, other than Crooked Hillary Clinton, goes to jail for a long time), and so did Andy McCabe, who also lied to the FBI! FAIRNESS?”
