After being sentenced to 40 months in prison, former Trump associate Roger Stone told “Axios on HBO” that his only fear in life is “not being right with God.” “I feel pretty good because I’ve taken Jesus Christ as my personal savior,” Stone said in his first on-camera interview since his sentencing. “And it’s given me enormous strength and solace, because he knows what’s in my heart.”
The seasoned Republican strategist also discussed his view of President Trump’s faith. Trump has overwhelming support from evangelical Christians — a key GOP voting block — despite his past personal life. Stone cited Trump’s Supreme Court nominations as an example of where he’s “kept faith with those voters.” “Christians believe deeply in redemption,” Stone said. “So it’s not whether you’ve sinned. It’s what’s in your heart today — where you stand with God today.”
Stone’s ploy with this bullshit, rather obviously, is to get more Trump World evangelicals to pressure their Glorious Leader for a pardon.
