Roger Stone guilty of all charges — fake president whines “whataboutit?”

❝ President Donald Trump saw his decades-long pal and political adviser Roger Stone was convicted on Friday. The jury was clearly swayed by the argument that Stone lied to protect Trump and convicted Stone on all seven criminal counts in just a week and a half’s time. The case was prosecuted by Trump’s Department of Justice.

Despite those facts, Trump promptly dismissed the conviction as the product of a double-standard, in which Democrats get away with everything and Trump’s supporters get away with nothing…

❝ “So they now convict Roger Stone of lying and want to jail him for many years to come. Well, what about Crooked Hillary, Comey, Strzok, Page, McCabe, Brennan, Clapper, Shifty Schiff, Ohr & Nellie, Steele & all of the others, including even Mueller himself? Didn’t they lie? A double standard like never seen before in the history of our Country?”

❝ UC Berkeley Law Prof. Orin Kerr and others quickly noted the president’s use of the word “they” [i.e. blaming no one in particular for Stone’s conviction while suggesting that a railroading had taken place].

Kerr pointed out the Trump appointees and the Trump Justice Department — which is often accused, by the way, of carrying water for the president — has prosecuted these cases and gotten convictions.

Trump – and his peers in today’s GOP Executive – turn to whining about “they” when their partners in crime, their buddies, in this case a lifelong associate of Trump are convicted of crimes. Everyone else they whine about hasn’t been charged or convicted of anything. They’re only “guilty” of opposing the demented plans of politicians who dream of being in charge of a fascist state.

    (7/7/20): One day after asking a federal appellate court to further delay the start of his impending 40-month prison sentence, Roger Stone, 67, appealed directly to President Donald Trump, telling a news organization that the president should pardon him or commute his sentence in the interest of justice.
    “I want the president to know that I have exhausted all my legal remedies and that only an act of clemency will provide justice in my case and save my life!” Stone, said in a Tuesday text message to Bloomberg. https://lawandcrime.com/high-profile/roger-stone-makes-direct-plea-for-pardon-from-president-trump-save-my-life/

    “Just had a long talk with #RogerStone. He says he doesn’t want a pardon (which implies guilt) but a commutation, and says he thinks #Trump will give it to him. “He knows I was under enormous pressure to turn on him. It would have eased my situation considerably. But I didn’t.” https://twitter.com/howardfineman/status/1281681337351626752
