Right wing rabble rouser Roger Stone made some startling comments in his first major tv appearance following the commutation of his prison sentence. Stone spoke with Fox News‘ host Sean Hannity.
As he declared. “I’m afraid this is a fixed system. This is the most horrible experience you can have. I see immediately why 99 percent of the people who choose to plead not guilty and go to trial lose when you’re up against the horrific and deep-pocketed resources of the federal government.”
And continued, “I had a biased judge, I had a stacked jury, I had a corrupt jury forewoman.” Stone said thanking a host of public conservative figures. “And also Congressman Matt Gaetz from Florida who I hope to live long enough to see in the White House.” Plus he added, “They wanted me to be the ham in their ham sandwich because they knew the Mueller report, particularly on Russia, it was a dud. It was a goose egg.”
Stone said Trump saved his life, as he is 67 years old with respiratory issues and was set to enter a prison with outbreaks of covid-19. “I have deep, deep affection for Donald Trump because I’ve known him for 30 years.” Then expressed, “He’s a man of great justice and fairness. He’s a man of enormous courage. I knew he would take some shots for this, but I think most people most fair-minded people understand. He saved my life.”
This following an opinion piece in the Washington Post by Special Counsel Robert Mueller that revealed: “We did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired with the Russian government in its activities. The investigation did, however, establish that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome. It also established that the campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts.”
Did Stone get a free pass? Or was justice finally served?
