DEVELOPING: President Trump Could Announce Commutation of Roger Stone’s Sentence as Early as Friday Evening
Fox News reported that the President is expected to announce that he will commute Roger Stone’s sentence within the next couple of hours.
President Trump is expected to announce that he will commute Roger Stone’s sentence, just days before the longtime political operative is slated to report to prison to serve more than three years for charges stemming from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, Fox News has learned.
Sources told Fox News Friday that the president could announce a commutation of Stone’s sentence as early as Friday evening.
A presidential pardon completely absolves an individual of the crime he or she is found to have committed. A commutation lessens the punishment or eliminates jail time, but leaves the conviction standing.
“I have deep concerns about going to a prison where there absolutely is COVID virus, and, therefore, either one would have an effect of saving my life,” Stone said.
He added: “If I should be fortunate enough to get a commutation, I would continue to fight for vindication.”
