Anyone believe he was treated fairly? Calls for Roger Stone pardon escalate in wake of Flynn bombshells

With a rapidly expanding body of evidence now suggesting that Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn will be “completely exonerated” sometime soon, calls are growing for President Donald Trump to take the initiative and pardon his former campaign official Roger Stone.

While Flynn and Stone’s separate cases may seem entirely unrelated to the untrained eye, they’re both allegedly rooted in the same brand of “deep state” corruption.

As President Donald Trump argued in a tweet Thursday morning, they were both allegedly targeted by the “same scammers,” as he calls them.

Thes scammers include the likes of disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, special agent Peter Strzok and attorney Lisa Page.

Look at Trump’s tweet below:

The CNN-recorded raid he mentioned can be seen below:

Evidence released this week strongly implicates Comey’s FBI in a plot to purposefully seduce Flynn into a perjury trap. So does a slew of other evidence, including Comey’s own words and disgraced former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s admission two years ago that he’d pushed Flynn to sit with the FBI without a lawyer present.

Based on this evidence, some now suspect that Stone, who faced the same sorts of charges as Flynn, may have also been lured into a perjury trap.

As noted by Fox News host Tucker Carlson in a segment two months ago, Stone’s entire case is also based on the allegation that he’d lied to investigators.

“Prosecutors claim that Stone lied about communicating with a former stand-up comedian called Randy Credico, a man whose role in the story was so minor that it’s already been lost to history. For this offense, prosecutors say, Stone, who is 67 years old and has no criminal record, must spend up to nine years in prison,” Carlson said.

“Now for perspective on that sentence, the typical rapist in this country spends four years in prison, armed robbers three years, thugs who commit violent assault less than a year and a half. But Roger Stone must do nine years until he is 76 years old. For lying.”

Of course, the question Carlson addressed at the time was whether Stone deserved such a lengthy prison sentence for lying. But the question now on a growing number of American minds is whether he’d been set up for a perjury trap like Flynn.

Another question is whether the allegedly “impartial” trial he received was even slightly fair. And once again, the evidence bodes strongly in Stone’s favor.

Speaking with Carlson two weeks ago, Stone noted that his trial was corrupted from the get-go.

“The U.S. Supreme Court has been very clear that all defendants are entitled to a jury that is impartial and indifferent, but in this case, it is undisputable (sic) that the jury foreman attacked both me and President Trump in 2019 in social media postings, lied about it during jury selection and then later deleted her Facebook page to cover her trails,” he said.

Fact-check: TRUE.

After the conclusion of Stone’s trial, the jury foreman was outed as former Tennessee Democrat congressional candidate Tomeka Hart, a far-left activist who’d been posting negative stories about the president and his alleged (and since-debunked) Russian collusion crimes to social media long before she was selected to serve on the jury.

This is one of many reasons why Carlson argued in February that the president must end this “shocking and disgusting farce” and pardon Stone.

“The president must pardon Roger Stone or commute his sentence before he goes to jail,” he said. “Democrats will howl if he does that. Well, they’re howling anyway. They howl every day. Chuck Schumer is now yelping about another investigation into Roger Stone: Russiagate 2.”

“The whole thing is shocking and it’s disgusting. It’s a farce that discredits the entire American justice system. The president seems to understand that,” he added, referring to the tweets below:

While it’s not clear what action the president might take, it’s imperative that, if he does indeed plan to intervene in Stone’s case, he take action immediately.

According to unconfirmed reports, the former Trump campaign official is scheduled to begin his 40-month prison sentence this Friday.
