A witch hunt. A hoax. A fishing expedition. These are all ways in which the $25+ million, 22 month long investigation into the RussiaGate conspiracy theory has been described in the days after it failed to pin any “collusion” on President Trump and his inner circle.
What was left for Robert Mueller, after realizing that there would be no grand finale in the case, were a number of lesser charges for lesser players, meant to serve as an intimidation tactic agains the White House. Men such as General Michael Flynn, White House adviser Paul Manafort, and political provocateur Roger Stone all felt the wrath of Mueller’s petty consolation prizes, with the latter being the latest to catch charges.
President Donald Trump’s longtime friend and onetime campaign adviser, Roger Stone, was convicted in the only remaining case from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
Prosecutors asked that Stone be remanded pending sentencing, citing his issues with abiding by court orders since his indictment. Stone’s defense pushed back, arguing he has not broken the condition of his release.
Given just how wildly Mueller’s investigation spun out of control, a great many Americans are finding themselves incensed at the litany of lesser charges that continues to pile up despite no grand scheme or conspiracy being worthy of litigation.
That’s why over 10,000 Americans have currently signed a petition to have Stone himself pardoned by President Trump.
“We, the undersigned, respectfully request that the President of the United States grant a full and unconditional pardon to Roger Jason Stone Jr,” reads an official White House petition — which has now generated nearly 5,000 signatures.
It’s unclear who started the petition, with the creator only identified as “J.V.”
If the petition gets 100,000 signatures within 30 days, the White House will be forced to respond, according to the government’s official petition website.
The effort comes less than 24 hours after the former Trump adviser was convicted on seven counts of lying to Congress, witness tampering and obstruction.
