Now that his sentence has been commuted by President Trump, Roger Stone said that he plans to campaign for Trump’s reelection, now that he “won’t die in a squalid hellhole of corona-19 virus,” Stone said in a phone interview with Axios.
“I’m asthmatic. Sending me to a prison where I could not be socially distanced … would, I think, be a death sentence,” said Stone, 67.
Stone also told Axios that he will “do anything necessary to elect my candidate, short of breaking the law.” He also added that “[F]irst, I’m going to write a book about this entire ordeal to, once and for all, put to bed the myth of Russian collusion. Stone added that Trump’s commutation of his sentence shows that the President “has an enormous sense of fairness and justice and mercy.”
President Trump should continue to do whatever possible to put the Mueller witch hunt, which Stone was one of the victims of, to bed once and for all. The Stone commutation was a good move in that direction.
