Adam Schiff: Pardoning Stone Would Be Impeachable

Raw Story reports:

Rep. Adam Schiff suggested that a presidential pardon for Roger Stone would be an impeachable offense. Judge Amy Berman Jackson sentenced the longtime Republican operative to 40 months in prison, saying Stone had lied to Congress and threatened a witness to cover up possible wrongdoing by President Donald Trump — and Schiff sent a warning against a pardon. Schiff, who led the impeachment inquiry and trial, agreed with Jackson — whose language echoed the lawmaker’s “corrupt scheme and cover-up” indictment during the Senate trial.
