RAILROADED: Roger Stone Sentenced to 40 Months in Prison with Status of Case Up in the Air
Political operative Roger Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison by a federal judge today, even with the status of his case up in the air after severe improprieties were found in the proceedings.
US District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson made it clear that she meant to send a political statement with her strict sentencing of Stone.
“This is intolerable to the administration of justice and the court should not sit idly by, shrug its shoulders and say well that is just Roger being Roger,” said Jackson, who was appointed to the bench by former President Barack Hussein Obama, before issuing the sentence.
“The truth still exists. The truth still matters. Roger Stone’s insistence that it doesn’t … [is] a threat to our most fundamental institutions,” she later added.
President Donald Trump is reportedly considering pardoning Stone and has spoken strongly against what has happened to his long-time confidant.
“I think it’s very tough what they did to Roger Stone, compared to what they do to other people on their side,” Trump said last year about the case.
Big League Politics has reported that the jury foreman in the Stone case was a former Democratic presidential candidate who is on the record being apart of the anti-Trump far-left resistance:
One juror in the case against long-time Trump associate Roger Stone has been revealed as a member of the Trump-hating resistance by her social media profile…
In addition, Hart has been a long time Democrat Party activist and even ran for Congress as a Democrat in Tennessee…
Journalist Mike Cernovich pointed out the fact that this Democrat activist and anti-Trump resistance member was even allowed on the jury shows a stunning level of misconduct by the judge who presided over the case.
“How did a federal court judge ever allow a far left wing activist to sit on a case where a close Trump associate faced trial?” Cernovich asked.
“The Roger Stone prosecution is a disgrace, it’s lawless, and it was rigged from the beginning,” he added.
“I’ve known Roger over the years. He’s a nice guy. A lot of people like him, and he got hit very hard, as did Gen. (Michael) Flynn,” he added.
Judge Andrew Napolitano, who has emerged as one of the most pointed critics of President Trump since his election, has even admitted that Stone’s case should be thrown out due to the improprieties that occurred during his trial.
“[They should ask] what did you know about her and when did you know it and why didn’t you tell us that you knew about her prejudice?” Napolitano asked, referring to the four prosecutors responsible for Stone’s railroading who have since resigned.
“You have a duty, an affirmative obligation to reveal to us when we selected you, [of] the existence of these tweets in which you were so harshly negative about the president and the people that support him,” Napolitano said, referring to the anti-Trump jury foreman.
“I think almost any judge in the country would order a new trial,” he added.
Jackson did not agree with Napolitano’s assessment and chose to make an example of Stone, whose Soviet-style show trial was a major affront to justice.
