President Donald Trump on Thursday promised his longtime political adviser Roger Stone would not serve time in prison, saying the convicted Republican provocateur “can sleep well at night” and repeating his criticisms of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe.
The hint from the president came on Twitter, after Charlie Kirk, the founder of the conservative group Turning Point USA, wrote Tuesday that Stone “will serve more time in prison than 99% of these rioters destroying America,” referring to the ongoing nationwide protests and racial unrest sweeping the country.
“All because he supports Donald Trump,” Kirk continued. “This isn’t justice. RT for a full pardon of Roger Stone!” Trump went on to share that tweet Thursday morning.
No. Roger was a victim of a corrupt and illegal Witch Hunt, one which will go down as the greatest political crime in history. He can sleep well at night! https://t.co/HHg24tcZrx
