Trump DOJ Recommends 7 To 9 Years For Roger Stone In Fake Russian Collusion Investigation – Hillary Clinton Still Enjoying Impunity
With the total miscarriage of justice that is occurring in these united States at present, every American should be concerned about what is happening to those involved in the 2016 Trump campaign because of a false accusation, a false dossier, and an investigation that went looking for anything it could find against anyone to charge, indict and convict them. If this can happen to these individuals close to Trump, imagine what could happen to an average American. Without the false dossier paid for by Hillary Clinton and false accusations from said dossier alleging Russian collusion on the part of the Trump campaign to influence the election, no individual involved would be serving any jail time at this point. And, the jail time these individuals received have nothing to do with any election interference.
Paul Manafort, former Trump campaign chairman, is serving seven and one-half years in prison for bank fraud. Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, is serving three years in prison. The latest target, Roger Stone, is expected to be sentenced to the prosecutor-recommended time of seven to nine years.
NewsMax.com reported that Roger Stone was found guilty of “[obstructing] Congress’ investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, [lying] under oath and [tampering] with a witness,” the filing read. “And when his crimes were revealed by the indictment in this case, he displayed contempt for this court and the rule of law”. Prosecutors contended the “evidence against Stone included that Trump knew about WikiLeaks’ plans to release emails damaging to his rival, Hillary Clinton, and Stone lied to Congress to protect the president”.
Stone’s sentence should be consistent with federal sentencing guidelines for his crimes, a range of 87-108 months, Justice Department prosecutors argued, saying the term will “accurately reflect the seriousness of his crimes and promote respect for the law.”

The Department of Justice is seeking a nearly decade-long prison sentence for former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone.
A memo from DOJ prosecutors Monday showed the feds want a sentence of 87-108 months for Stone, 67, after he was found guilty of witness tampering, making false statements to Congress and obstruction last November, stemming from the FBI Special Counsel’s phony witch hunt investigation into Trump-Russia collusion.
The lengthy term, prosecutors claim, “will send the message that tampering with a witness, obstructing justice, and lying in the context of a congressional investigation on matters of critical national importance are not crimes to be taken lightly.”
The two-year long Mueller investigation did not produce any evidence of Russian collusion to interfere or affect the 2016 presidential election. But, with a false dossier in hand and members of the FBI, Page, Strzok, and Comey, using the unconstitutional FISA court to gain warrants under false pretenses, Mueller and his team full of partisan individuals against Trump proceeded, with limited supervision by the Justice Department, to dig almost to China on Trump’s campaign members. As they say, if you go looking for a crime, you will find one.
A jury found these three men guilty of the charges; however, the investigation, which began on Russian collusion for election interference LIE, morphed into an investigation looking for any crime it could find on anyone associated with the Trump campaign. There was certainly collusion occurring with the Hussein Soetoro administration, the Clinton campaign, and the FBI to unlawfully spy on the Trump campaign, but nothing is being done about that. And, the dossier was fake and passed on by none other than John McCain.
Didn’t Hillary Clinton lie before Congress during the Benghazi hearings? Yes, she did. Didn’t Hillary Clinton violate the law by passing top secret information through an unsecured server? Yes, she did. Didn’t she also have the server’s contents deleted to cover up some impropriety? Yes, she did. Couldn’t any of this be considered obstruction of Congress when investigating the attack on the outpost in Benghazi that resulted in four Americans losing their lives? Why yes, it could. This is far worse than what Roger Stone, Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort did, which was in no way related to the investigation of the Russian collusion hoax.
When one starts looking at the FBI, there is blatant evidence of unlawful conduct, the attempt to subvert the outcome of the 2016 election, withholding evidence/information that would have resulted in the FISA court denying the request for a warrant, and full knowledge of the dossier being false; but, the FBI continued to stalk the Trump campaign and administration. Why are the individuals involved – James Comey, Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe, and Lisa Page, not being charged with crimes? Then, there is Hussein Soetoro. What did he know, when did he know it, and did he initiate the actions, along with Hillary Clinton, to damage the Trump campaign and thereby attempt to influence the election?
But, it doesn’t stop there. FoxNews reported:
Federal prosecutors argued that Stone intentionally lied about his use of intermediaries to get information about WikiLeaks’ possession and release of hacked Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton campaign emails. They also said Stone hid the truth to protect the Trump campaign.
Stone’s defense, however, maintained that Stone did not have an actual inside connection with WikiLeaks. They also argued that there was reasonable doubt that Stone lied to congressional lawmakers.
Another defense Stone’s team put forward was that there was no way he could have lied about intermediaries between himself and WikiLeaks because there were no intermediaries. Radio host Randy Credico and author Jerome Corsi, who had allegedly been Stone’s go-betweens, never actually communicated with WikiLeaks, the defense said, even if Stone thought they had.
During the 2016 campaign, Stone had mentioned in interviews and public appearances that he was in contact with Assange through a trusted intermediary and hinted at inside knowledge of WikiLeaks’ plans. But he started pressing Credico to broker a contact, and Credico testified that he told Stone to work through his own intermediary.
Meanwhile, the witness tampering allegations were based on communications between Stone and Credico, where Stone allegedly told him to “do a Frank Pentangeli,” a reference to “The Godfather Part II,” where a mob adviser testifying before Congress was expected to reveal crimes committed by the Corleone family, only to then claim ignorance once he was under oath.
Stone’s defense dismissed the “Godfather” talk as an ongoing topic of conversation between friends. They also portrayed Credico as the one who “played” Stone by lying about his ties to WikiLeaks.
Stone had been a frequent guest of Alex Jones on his Infowars broadcasts, along with Jerome Corsi. With Stone attempting to investigate what was going on with the Clinton emails, after the Podesta emails were found to use terms related to pedophilia, Stone was doing what any other journalist would do during performance of his or her job. And, in the words of Hillary Clinton, “What difference does it make?” The emails are a matter of public domain and subject to a Freedom of Information Act request. No one in the Trump campaign hacked the emails; the emails were downloaded to a USB thumb drive device and passed to WikiLeaks. Seth Rich paid the ultimate price for his patriotism. But, an individual in a foreign country hacked the unauthorized, unsecured Clinton server. Not once, but several times. And, rumors abound that someone in Russia had gained access to the server – a server containing SAPs programs Clinton should have had secured.
Julian Assange is currently in a prison where it has been reported he is being tortured and starved. This is the price Assange is paying for exposing united States government crimes, corruptions, and unlawful actions. Let’s not forget Edward Snowden, who exposed the extent of unlawful spying on American citizens by government, residing in Russia under asylum because the US government wants to prosecute him for being a whistleblower.
The Daily Caller expounded on the information coming out of the trial.
Despite Democrats’ and the special counsel’s initial suspicions that Stone conspired with Russia or WikiLeaks, investigators found no evidence that the Trump associate had direct contact with anyone involved in stealing or disseminating Democrats’ emails.
The special counsel’s report said that investigators found no evidence that any Trump associates worked with Russia or WikiLeaks to release Democrats’ emails. [Emphasis Mine.]
Prosecutors, who recommended that Stone serve 87 months in jail at a minimum, argued in their filing that Stone, who was convicted at trial on Nov. 15, should serve additional jail time because of threatening messages he sent to Credico, a left-wing comedian who Stone has known since 2002.
Prosecutors alleged that Stone pressured Credico to plead the Fifth in order to avoid testifying to the House or special counsel about their discussions regarding WikiLeaks.
Stone told Credico in an April 2018 text message: “Prepare to die c**ksucker.”
Stone told House investigators that Credico was a source of information for him regarding the timeline of when WikiLeaks would release information damaging to the Clinton campaign. Credico, who was close friends with a WikiLeaks lawyer, has long denied being a source of information for Stone regarding WikiLeaks.
Despite Credico’s denials, text messages that he sent Stone in the days before WikiLeaks began releasing former Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s emails suggest that he had at least some prior knowledge that negative information for the Clinton campaign would be released.
Credico, who testified at Stone’s trial, asked Judge Amy Berman Jackson in a letter on Jan. 20 asking her to sentence Stone only to probation, without jail time. He testified at trial and said in the letter that he did not feel physically threatened by Stone’s threats.
Prosecutors downplayed Credico’s letter in their sentencing recommendation.
“Stone may point to the letter submitted by Credico and argue that he did not have a serious plan to harm Credico or that Credico did not seriously believe that Stone would follow through on his threats. But Credico testified that Stone’s threats concerned him because he was worried that Stone’s words, if repeated in public, might make ‘other people get ideas,’” they argued.
“In any event, it is the threat itself, not the likelihood of carrying out the threat, that triggers the enhancement,” prosecutors said.
Hypocrisy runs deep in this fiasco. “Mad Max”ine Waters called for individuals who did not support Trump or anyone in the administration to harass, stalk, and issue verbal threats against Trump and anyone in the administration seen in public. It happened to Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her family. Where are the charges against “Mad Max”ine? Yeah, crickets again.
So, the prosecution is recommending Roger Stone receive an “enhanced” sentence because of a threat, without the likelihood of following through with that threat. Yet, “Mad Max”ine engaged in speech intended to incite violence against political opposition, which it did, with impunity and she gets to retain her seat in Congress. Unbelievable! Tom Clancy couldn’t make this stuff up.
Tucker Carlson, on his show Tucker Carlson Tonight, focused his monologue on the harsh sentence imposed upon Stone, the call by Elizabeth Warren to impose a harsher sentence, and compared Stone’s sentence to those rapists receive.
Carlson began the short Tuesday night “Tucker Carlson Tonight” segment by playing a clip from Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren criticizing the Justice Department’s decision to step in and reconsider the “excessive” seven to nine years recommended for Stone, convicted in November of obstruction, making false statements, and witness tampering.
“That is Elizabeth Warren, failing and bitter in New Hampshire and, like so many on the left, howling for Roger Stone to die in prison,” Carlson said. “A 67-year-old man with no criminal record caught up in the Russia hoax, farce, caught up in an investigation that proved to be fruitless.”
“He’s looking at nine years behind bars,” the Fox News host continued. “Do you know what the average rapist does in this country? We checked today. Four years. Do you know what the average armed robber gets? Three years. The average thug who violently assaults somebody? Less than a year and a half. But the left, CNN as well, demanding that Roger Stone dies in prison. Hmm. This man needs a pardon.”
Trump called Stone’s sentence recommendation “horrible and very unfair situation”. Really? That’s it?! This situation is the result of an open-ended investigation to find anything to stick on anyone associated with Trump. It went further than an investigation on possible Russian collusion, which was fabricated through a Clinton campaign paid for dossier, that ran amok due to zero oversight and morphed into some unauthorized “criminal” investigation looking for any crime by anyone. It’s a misuse of authority. This was akin to the police investigating an innocent individual, without any reasonable suspicion of wrongdoing, to find a crime for the courts to prosecute.
If you look closer at the situation, one can see the similarities of what average Americans face when dealing with law enforcement during a traffic stop.
The message the government is sending is clear. And, it is coming from both unconstitutional parties. The message is – if the people inside the Beltway do not like the outcome of an election, everything within their power will be done to overturn that election in order to seat their chosen candidate into the office of the president, even going so far as to fabricate crimes, lie to the court, and, stonewall Congress. In other words, the people are being reminded that the power lies within Washington, DC, and Congress concedes to that power. When anyone investigates the government, uncovering blatant corruption and wrongdoing, a heavy price is exacted for stepping out of line.
The entire investigation was a total horrific travesty bordering on those that were conducted in the former Soviet Union to quell the rise of the opposition to the communist Politburo. This investigation cost the taxpayers millions that should have been better spent instead of being thrown into the wind because of “sore losers”. Roger Stone will be sentenced soon for being an investigative journalist, like Julian Assange, exposing criminal activity in government, while real criminals – Hillary Clinton, Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Soebarkah, James Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, Lisa Page, Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe, Lois Lerner, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, Bill Clinton and Mad “Max”ine Waters, receive impunity because they are part of the “swamp” controlling Congress behind the curtain.
Let’s talk about all of that, all you talking heads and Silicone Barbies in the lamestream government-controlled entertainment enemedia.
