[Ed. – Keep in mind, Stone wasn’t convicted of anything that would have happened outside of his Russia-hoax pursuit by Mueller; and he never “sang” (or “composed”). He’s something of a flake, but Trump has reason to put him out of his misery. Michael Cohen, by contrast — while he should not be pounded merely for being connected to Trump — was convicted of other-than-process crimes, and didn’t stand up to prosecutorial extortion as Stone and Manafort both did.]
President Donald Trump has commuted the sentence of longtime adviser Roger Stone, who was found guilty of seeking to thwart congressional and FBI investigations into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.
A senior administration official confirmed to POLITICO that Trump commuted Stone’s sentence.
Stone, 67, was sentenced in February to three years and four months in prison after a trial late last year where a jury found him guilty on all seven felony charges brought by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
