I know I should sleep on this, but I know I won’t sleep with this news on my mind. Roger Stone did the crime, he should serve the time. Oh, he might die in prison? So let‘s give everyone who might die in prison a get-out-of-jail-free card.
Of course, I’m not surprised by this action. I’m just pissed. There should be a better reason for commuting someone’s sentence other than he’s your buddy. Is the argument that he never should have been prosecuted? I‘m not buying that based on what I know - he did what he did and got caught. So much for the Swamp being drained. I’m not saying other presidents haven’t been surrounded by “bad dudes” but Trump seems to sure have had a lot of them. Availability bias? Maybe so.
Still pissed. Time for a walk.
