Vox News– “Former special counsel Robert Mueller offered pointed criticism of President Donald Trump’s decision to commute the sentence of his longtime friend and campaign adviser Roger Stone in an op-ed in the Washington Post on Saturday. Mueller declared that despite being granted clemency, Stone “remains a convicted felon, and rightly so.”

“Trump commuted Stone’s sentence on Friday — just days before he was set to begin serving a 40-month prison sentence after being convicted of lying to lawmakers who were investigating whether Russia influenced the 2016 elections. That conviction stemmed from work done by Mueller’s team in its investigation of the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia. Stone was convicted of seven charges in total, which included witness tampering and obstructing a congressional committee proceeding.”
