En route to #RogerStone’s house for celebratory drinks.
Justice was done by @realDonaldTrump tonight.
Given all the circumstances, seems fair to me.
UPDATE: What were "all the circumstances"? Shipwrecked crew lays it out, so I don't have to go digging up old posts:
I’m curious about your position here. You think this is just an “Orange Man Bad” thing? Nothing at all about the president commuting a sentence of a man who lied to Congress, and was convicted of 7 felonies directly connected to his lying for/protecting said president?
How was [Stone] "protecting" POTUS?? What did his lies "cover-up"? What he covered up was that he'd been lying to Trump and the campaign about having a connection to Wikileaks -- he didn't. His lies to Congress were to cover his earlier lies -- not to cover up complicity by Trump.
What the Roger Stone case was about:
1. A "stick in the eye" to Trump as the SCO's sign off when they realized they weren't going to get him.
2. Forcing Bannon and Gates to testify about Stone falsely bragging about a connection to Assange/Wiki, and that he spoke with Trump.
What the case was never about:
1. Misleading the Devin Nunes House Intel Comm in 2017.
Remember that -- the "false statements" made to Cong. were before Adam Schiff was Chairman. Don't believe anything about Stone coming of out Schiff's mouth.
And Andy McCarthy draws attention to a year old article that lays out the whole Mueller scam pretty clearly--Stone indictment makes clear there was no Trump-Russia conspiracy:
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of Roger Stone elucidates what has been apparent to the public for a year, and therefore must have been known to prosecutors and the FBI for much longer: There was no criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russian government. ...
In the Stone indictment, Mueller offers up 20 pages of heavy-breathing narrative about the Russian theft of tens of thousands of emails from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, the transmission of the purloined materials to WikiLeaks (portrayed as a witting arm of the Putin regime), and their subsequent media publication in the final weeks of the campaign. But the big wind produces no rain. At the end, we get a couple of pages of process crimes.
Stone is charged with such comparative trifles as concealing from Congress that his communications with an associate were in writing. The seven counts are offenses generated not by an espionage conspiracy but by the investigation of an espionage conspiracy that did not exist.
Not one that “may not have existed.” The Trump-Russia conspiracy did not exist.
This should not be controversial. It should not matter whether you like Donald Trump. ... It is simply a matter of reading the special counsel’s indictments, of seeing through their ambitious storytelling and grappling with what they actually charge.
It is very simple. If the Trump campaign had been in an espionage conspiracy with Russia to hack Democratic email accounts, why would the campaign have needed Stone to try to figure out what stolen information WikiLeaks had and when it would release that information?
Of course, everyone who mattered in Washington--including the GOP leaders--knew this as well.
