Roger Stone Talks Commutation: Mueller’s Dirty Cops, Prosecutors Were “Sadistic, Arrogant”. From an interview of Roger Stone by Sean Hannity.
SEAN HANNITY, FOX NEWS HOST: As we told you, President Trump announced Friday he was commuting the sentence of Roger Stone. Just days before, Stone was set to start a three-plus-year prison sentence stemming from Robert Mueller’s Russian witch hunt.
Remember, Stone was convicted of process crimes relating to 2017, and statements he made to House lawmakers. In other words, lying before Congress. Huh. Adam Schiff presiding, the biggest liar in Congress.
Now, neither the Schiff show nor Robert Mueller produced one bit of evidence that Stone was working with anybody colluding with Russia. …
ROGER STONE, FORMER TRUMP CAMPAIGN AIDE: Well, this is the most horrible experience you can have because I see immediately why 99 percent of the people who choose to plead not guilty and go to trial lose, when you’re up against the horrific and deep-pocketed resources of the federal government and these really sadistic, arrogant, politically motivated prosecutors.
And I had a biased judge. I had a stacked jury. I had a corrupt jury forewoman. As my friend Tucker Carlson said, my trial was over before it started. …
Lie to damage Trump, or we’ll throw you in prison:
STONE: … on July 24th, Jeannie Rhee, who was heading my prosecution within the Mueller team, … made it very clear to one of my lawyers after a hearing … that if I would re-remember certain phone conversations I had with candidate Trump, if I would come clean, if I would confess, that they — that they might be willing to, you know, recommend leniency to the judge. Perhaps I wouldn’t even serve any jail time.
And I didn’t have to think about it very long. I said absolutely not. There was no circumstance under which I would bear false witness against the president. I was — I was just not willing to lie.
Now, in the last two days when I said that, people said you see Stone had the goods on Trump and he traded his silence for — for commutation. That is patently false. I never said that. I never implied that.
Going to the justice system is pointless in the culture war, because it is stacked in favor of the left.
Remember the optics when the Dept of Justice arrested Stone, on a charge of lying to Congress? A pre-dawn raid on his home with a dozen armed agents, with a tip off to the CNN so it got lots of coverage. Totally unnecessary to the task of arresting Stone (who is a 67 year old political type), but great theater.
