    It was expected. Stone has been loyal to Trump, but might have flipped if he had to spend some jail time. This Administration’s corruption continues.

    Problem for Stone is, there may be more charges down the road. When a Biden Administration will have no corrupt interest in sparing Stone. The Nixon tattoo on his back will make a great incentive when he’s bent over in a prison shower.

    Mr. Metta,

    Why did you create this topic when it has already been posted as a topic here?

    Possible answer #1: Metta is a bot

    Possible answer #2: Metta is on a crazed mission to post anything that might possibly be negative about President Trump and doesn't realize this is a forum where people (not bots) actually read the list of forum topics before creating a new topic. His crazed obsession has blinded him to forum etiquette.

    ‘Historic Corruption': Romney Blasts Trump for Commuting Roger Stone's Prison Sentence

    Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah on Saturday called the impeached Piece of Shit Donald Trump's decision to commute the prison sentence of Roger Stone "unprecedented, historic corruption," becoming the first prominent Republican to condemn the illegitimate president.

    “An American president commutes the sentence of a person convicted by a jury of lying to shield that very president,” Romney, a leading critic of the president, wrote on Twitter.

    Other Republicans have rallied around the president, taking to Twitter in support of his decision to clear Stone's 40-month prison sentence.

    Former US special counsel Robert Mueller has made a rare public intervention to defend his indictment of former Trump adviser Roger Stone.

    Stone was found guilty on charges linked to an investigation led by Mr Mueller that found Russia tried to boost the Trump 2016 election campaign.
    The Impeached Piece of Shit Donald Trump commuted Stone's 40-month jail sentence on Friday saying he was the victim of a "witch-hunt".

    In the Washington Post, Mr Mueller said Stone was rightly a convicted felon.
    Stone was convicted of obstruction, witness tampering and lying to Congress.

    The Impeached Piece of Shit's move - sparing Stone from jail but not granting him a pardon - came just after a court denied Stone's request to delay the start date of his prison term.
    Leading Democrats and a few Republicans have condemned Mr Trump's decision, saying it undermined the justice system.

    The White House said that Department of Justice prosecutors under Mr Mueller only charged Stone out of frustration after failing to prove the "fantasy" that the Trump campaign had colluded with the Kremlin.
    What do Mueller and others say?

    Mr Mueller writes that he felt compelled to respond to claims that his investigation had been illegitimate, his motives improper, and Stone a victim.

    Mr Mueller's article is his first public statement since he gave testimony to Congress last year
    "The Russia investigation was of paramount importance. Stone was prosecuted and convicted because he committed federal crimes. He remains a convicted felon, and rightly so," he wrote.

    He said that finding evidence of Russian interference was a complex task that took "two years and substantial effort" and resulted in a number of charges and prosecutions. Stone's obstruction may have impeded efforts to find the truth and hold wrongdoers accountable, he added.
    "We made every decision in Stone's case, as in all our cases, based solely on the facts and the law and in accordance with the rule of law," he concluded. "The women and men who conducted these investigations and prosecutions acted with the highest integrity. Claims to the contrary are false."
    Mr Mueller rarely makes public statements about the investigation, and the article is the first since he gave testimony in Congress in July 2019.
    His reaction follows strong condemnation by senior Democrats, with presidential contender Joe Biden's spokesman accusing Mr Trump of abuse of power and "laying waste" to US values.

    Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren said it showed Mr Trump was the most corrupt president in history.
    Some Republican critics of Mr Trump have also spoken out, with Senator Mitt Romney describing the president's decision as "unprecedented, historic corruption".

    Stone's sentence fell short of an initial seven-to-nine-year recommendation from prosecutors.
    In a remarkable move, US Attorney General William Barr had overruled that sentencing guideline following a Trump tweet, and instead recommended a more lenient punishment.
    That intervention led to the entire Stone prosecution team resigning from the case.

    Given the 2 1/2 years and more than $40 million dollars Mueller spent trying to "get Trump" and coming up empty, it seems Mueller is only good at one thing:
