Roger Stone was found guilty of lying to Congress and threatening a witness.
He did it to cover up for Trump. His sentence is justified.
It should go without saying, but to pardon Stone when his crimes were committed to protect Trump would be a breathtaking act of corruption.
Russia is aiding President Trump in the 2020 election, intelligence officials told lawmakers. Trump complained Democrats might exploit the news.
Replying to @RepAdamSchiff: We count on the intelligence community to inform Congress of any threat of foreign interference in our elections.
We count on the intelligence community to inform Congress of any threat of foreign interference in our elections.
If reports are true and the President is interfering with that, he is again jeopardizing our efforts to stop foreign meddling.
Exactly as we warned he would do.
There are 175,000 federal prisoners. Many are serving harsh sentences and deserve mercy.
Yet, Trump uses pardons almost exclusively for:
1) Political supporters
2) Wealthy individuals
3) Contestants on his TV show
And worse abuses are almost surely to come.
This is rolling thunder. One stuffed goose named Barr is cooked. 2000 DOJ alumni he can ignore. 1000 federal judges? That’s an altogether different kettle of fish.
"I won't have time to golf. I just want to work my ass off" - Donald Trump, Feb. 2016.
Today marks his 348th visit to one of his own properties and 260th day golfing, in the 1,121 days he's been president.
Total cost? Approx. $134 million, or 333 years of presidential salary.
White House officials say since President Trump's acquittal on impeachment charges, he is determined to assert an iron grip on government, pushing his Justice Department to ease up on friends while exacting payback on real and perceived foes.
President Trump now admits he sent Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine to find damaging information on his political opponents, despite denying it during impeachment
Replying to @TheRickWilson: I TOLD YOU.
I ***TOLD*** you Trump would confess.
Trump abused his power to coerce Ukraine into announcing investigations for his personal benefit by freezing military aid.
Now, he's using his powers to coerce states to stop investigations into him and his businesses.
Different corrupt purpose, same corrupt President.
The President says if New York will stop investigating potential crimes he committed he will restore the global entry status he denied them for reasons which are now plain for all to see.
Senate Republicans protected a corrupt President who operates by shakedown and extortion.
“I’m not going to be bullied or influenced by anybody….whether it’s Congress, newspaper editorial boards, or the president," Bill Barr tells @ABC News.
"I cannot do my job here at the department with a constant background commentary that undercuts me.”
I call bullshit. What Bill Barr REALLY means is that Trump’s tweets saying the quiet part out loud are making it harder for him to do the crimes and cover-up. So speaketh the #CoverupGeneral.
You, Donald, are a 5’10”, 300 pound, lift-wearing, sack of stinking, steaming garbage. Your thoughts are garbage, your actions are garbage, your buildings are REAL garbage, your fortune is garbage, and everything and everyone in your orbit is garbage. You just have that effect.
.@realDonaldTrump - we know many of the same people in NY. Behind your back they laugh at you & call you a carnival barking clown. They know you inherited a fortune & squandered it with stupid deals and incompetence.
I have the record & the resources to defeat you. And I will.
