President Trump Commutes Roger Stone’s Sentence
Commuting on a Friday night, Tweet about it all Saturday morning…or something.
President Donald Trump said Saturday that Roger Stone was entangled in “an illegal Witch Hunt,” offering his first comment since the White House announced Friday night that Trump commuted the prison sentence of his former campaign aide, sparing his longtime adviser from having to report to prison next week.
“Roger Stone was targeted by an illegal Witch Hunt that never should have taken place. It is the other side that are criminals, including Biden and Obama, who spied on my campaign – AND GOT CAUGHT!,” Trump tweeted Saturday morning.
Trump continued to tweet about other players involved in the Russia investigation, including his former attorney general Jeff Sessions and the former British spy Christopher Steele.
“This man should be extradited, tried, and thrown into jail,” Trump wrote of Steele. “A sick lier who was paid by Crooked Hillary & the DNC!”
Trump shared multiple articles about Steele, who was ordered by a British court earlier this week to pay damages over “inaccurate” claims in the dossier that he became known for during the 2016 campaign.
