Robert Mueller blasts commutation of Roger Stone’s sentence: ‘He remains a convicted felon’

Former special counsel Robert Mueller spoke out about President Donald Trump’s commutation of Roger Stone’s criminal conviction in an op-ed published online on Saturday by The Washington Post.

“The work of the special counsel’s office — its report, indictments, guilty pleas and convictions — should speak for itself. But I feel compelled to respond both to broad claims that our investigation was illegitimate and our motives were improper, and to specific claims that Roger Stone was a victim of our office. The Russia investigation was of paramount importance. Stone was prosecuted and convicted because he committed federal crimes. He remains a convicted felon, and rightly so,” Mueller wrote.

“Russia’s actions were a threat to America’s democracy. It was critical that they be investigated and understood. By late 2016, the FBI had evidence that the Russians had signaled to a Trump campaign adviser that they could assist the campaign through the anonymous release of information damaging to the Democratic candidate. And the FBI knew that the Russians had done just that: Beginning in July 2016, WikiLeaks released emails stolen by Russian military intelligence officers from the Clinton campaign,” Mueller explained.

“Congress also investigated and sought information from Stone. A jury later determined he lied repeatedly to members of Congress. He lied about the identity of his intermediary to WikiLeaks. He lied about the existence of written communications with his intermediary. He lied by denying he had communicated with the Trump campaign about the timing of WikiLeaks’ releases. He in fact updated senior campaign officials repeatedly about WikiLeaks. And he tampered with a witness, imploring him to stonewall Congress,” he wrote.

“The jury ultimately convicted Stone of obstruction of a congressional investigation, five counts of making false statements to Congress and tampering with a witness. Because his sentence has been commuted, he will not go to prison. But his conviction stands,” the former FBI director declared.

Robert Mueller just essentially called Trump a pathological liar in public.

To put a fine point on it:


Just a few hours before Trump’s commutation, Roger Stone told NBC‘s @HowardFineman that he wanted and expected that commutation, making a point to add that he faced “enormous pressure” to turn on the president but did not.

Trump is the immediate threat to democracy. But never ever forget that neither the corruption nor the fascism is specific to Trump. An entire political party is pursuing that dual goal.

Senator Chris Murphy:

Republicans don't care about democracy. They are willing to let it die in sycophantic service to their party's out of control leader.

THE REST OF US must save the republic. By working our asses off to vote out every single last one of the enablers, apologists, and cowards.

Trump’s campaign manager is a felon.
His deputy campaign manager is a felon.
His national security advisor is a felon.
His foreign policy advisor is a felon.
His personal lawyer is a felon.
His long time advisor is a felon.

It’s not a campaign, it’s a criminal enterprise.

Mr. Mueller must be feeling much better now. Maybe the House can call him to testify again?

Impeachment lawyer shreds Mueller’s ‘unforgivable’ failure in Russia probe

Eisen helped bring Mueller to Capitol Hill, but he felt the former FBI director had “abdicated” his duty during the Russia probe and failed to rise to threat posed by Trump’s wrongdoing.

I explained to you on here several times that he is elderly and was not feeling well that day. But you are a broken record just like Trump who repeats the same baloney over and over again. His testimony would not of be even necessary except that Barr had told serious lies about his report.

Why the Mueller Investigation Failed

President Trump’s obstructions of justice were broader than those of Richard Nixon or Bill Clinton, and the special counsel’s investigation proved it. How come the report didn’t say so?

Here Are All of the Indictments, Guilty Pleas and Convictions From Robert Mueller's Investigation

Since his appointment in May of 2017, Special Counsel Robert Mueller racked up a lengthy record of court wins, but none of them answered some of the central questions the public had about his investigation into potential collusion between President Donald Trump or his campaign and Russia.

Along with a team of experienced prosecutors and attorneys, the former FBI director has indicted, convicted or gotten guilty pleas from 34 people and three companies, including top advisers to President Trump, Russian spies and hackers with ties to the Kremlin. The charges, which Mueller referenced during his opening statement to the House Judiciary Committee on July 24, range from interfering with the 2016 election and hacking emails to lying to investigators and tampering with witnesses.
