Roger Stone Guilty!

Trump confidant and GOP operative Roger Stone was found guilty on all seven counts of obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements to Congress in Washington, D.C., federal court. The guilty verdict came after a week-long trial on charges that stemmed from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

Stone was charged with providing false statements to the House Intelligence Committee about communications having to do with WikiLeaks, obstructing a congressional investigation of Russian interference during the 2016 presidential election, and witness tampering.

Stone was released on his own recognizance until sentencing, which is now slated for Feb. 6, 2020. Federal Judge Amy Jackson said, however, she is not releasing Stone from the gag order she imposed on him earlier this year, and stated that he was still bound by that order as a condition of his release.

President Trump railed against the verdict minutes after it was announced, a judgment that came just as the second in a series of public impeachment hearings was still in progress.

“So they now convict Roger Stone of lying and want to jail him for many years to come. Well, what about Crooked Hillary, Comey, Strzok, Page, McCabe, Brennan, Clapper, Shifty Schiff, Ohr & Nellie, Steele & all of the others, including even Mueller himself? Didn’t they lie?” he tweeted. “A double standard like never seen before in the history of our Country?”

During the trial, several witnesses highlighted how Trump campaign associates were eager to gather information about emails the U.S. said were hacked by Russia and then provided to WikiLeaks. Stone was regarded as an “access point” to WikiLeaks, due to his frequent boasts of having insider access to WikiLeaks’ founder, Julian Assange.

Federal prosecutors argued that Stone intentionally lied about his use of intermediaries to get information about WikiLeaks’ possession and release of hacked Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton campaign emails. They also said Stone hid the truth to protect the Trump campaign.

During the 2016 campaign, Stone had mentioned in interviews and public appearances that he was in contact with Assange through a trusted intermediary and hinted at inside knowledge of WikiLeaks’ plans.

The outspoken Republican operative, 67, was indicted in January as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into whether Russia colluded with the Trump campaign.

Jurors began deliberating Thursday after about a week of testimony, including from Trump campaign chief executive Steve Bannon, who said Stone boasted about his ties to WikiLeaks and its founder, Julian Assange, and alerted the campaign to pending batches of damaging Democratic emails.

He faces up to 20 years in prison at his sentencing Feb. 6, but his sentence will likely be much lighter.

    Perhaps someone could enlighten WE THE PEOPLE what Roger Stone did to deserve this guilty verdict…what did he impede that hurt anyone, what did he lie about, etc. We need details, for MURDERERS don’t face the time that he is, FOR WHAT SAY WE! What he did does not compare to what the LIBERAL DEMOCRATS have done regarding their DARK STATE treatment of PRESIDENT TRUMP….This is not JUSTICE, this is “Railroading”, plain and simple! WAS THE JUDGE, JURY MADE UP OF LIBERAL DEMOCRATS and did any of them completely understand the charges and the consequences of their VERDICT? LADY JUSTICE IS NOT SMILING NOW, SHE IS FROWNING!

    What is wrong with picture? When are we, the American people, going to properly demand that our government, indict and put on trial, eventually thereafter to go to jail, the folowing list of liars. Didn’t your mother tell you that liars are cheats and thieves also. Hillary Clinton, McCabe, Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Strozk, Page,Mueller, Rosenstein, Schifty, Schumer, Pelosi, etc. Also AOC, Tlaib, Omar, and the far left wing of these stupid democrats who are holding this country hostage because they didn’t win 2016.

    This is an outrage. So bias that it makes me sick to think this is happening in our country. Like the evil Sheriff of Nottingham, Sherwood Forest that targeted people that didn’t agree with him while letting the crooks roam free to create havoc with the people! Our President is operating in the midst a bunch of crooked goons pretending to do the peoples business as they destroy our constitution! Who was this judge that made this ridiculous decision? How will we ever have any good decent people stand up for our country if we let such things go on? All while the Clinton crime family walks, the crooked Biden’s, Pelosi’s etc go on with their raping of America! COME ON PEOPLE, PLEASE START DEMANDING A STOP TO THIS MAYHEM!

    I view Roger Stone as innocent of all charges and a political victim of judicial injustice.

    Interesting that they did a full scale raid on his house with CN camera people present. A SWAT type raid. His computers, etc. were taken, but had no evidence that was used in court. Only testimony about what some people said he said. He did not hack computer, WikiLeaks published what former DNC worker gave them. Worker later murdered. FBI found Hillary’s deleted emails on Anthony Weiner’s laptop.
    ( I still think it odd a man who sent nude photos of himself is named “Weiner”). Is it spelled Weiner or Wiener?
