Trump ally Roger Stone sentenced to 40 months on convictions of lying to Congress, witness tampering
Special Report: Roger Stone sentence announced LIVE: Roger Stone, long-time ally of President Trump, is set to be sentenced on convictions of lying to Congress and witness tampering https://10.wsls.com/3bTrQrM Posted by WSLS 10 / WSLS.com on Thursday, February 20, 2020WASHINGTON, D.C. – Roger Stone, a staunch ally of President Donald Trump, has been sentenced to 40 months in prison on his convictions for witness tampering and lying to Congress. Thursday’s action in federal court comes amid Trump’s unrelenting defense of his longtime confidant that has led to a mini-revolt inside the Justice Department and allegations the president has interfered in the case. Trump has denounced as a “miscarriage of justice” the initial recommendation by Justice Department prosecutors that Stone receive at least seven years in prison. Attorney General William Barr then backed off that recommendation, prompting four prosecutors to quit Stone’s case. Stone chose not to address the court at his sentencing.
