Double Standard of Justice: Roger Stone Found ‘Guilty’ of Lying to Congress While Democrat Liars Evade Prosecution

Roger Stone, Wiki
image_pdfimage_print
Former Donald Trump campaign strategist, Roger Stone, 67, has been found guilty of all seven felony charges including lying to Congress, witness tampering, and obstruction, with regard to his contact with WikiLeaks. Prosecutors used Stone’s own text messages and emails, some of which appeared to contradict his congressional testimony, to lay out their case that he lied to Congress and threatened a witness. Stone did not testify, and his lawyers called no witnesses in his defense.

Stone was not allowed by Judge Amy Berman Jackson, an Obama appointee, to demand proof that Russia did indeed hack the DNC computers. Attorneys for Stone contended that if the Russians did not hack the DNC computers, the case against Stone would have had to be dismissed. Stone is under a court-imposed gag order forbidding him from speaking publicly about the verdict or the case until sentencing in February 6, 2020. He faces up to 50 years in prison. 

Upon learning of the verdict, the President tweeted, “So they now convict Roger Stone of lying and want to jail him for many years to come. Well, what about Crooked Hillary, Comey, Strzok, Page, McCabe, Brennan, Clapper, Shifty Schiff, Ohr & Nellie, Steele & all of the others, including even Mueller himself? Didn’t they lie?”

 

On Friday, Roger Stone, a political operative who had worked with Presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump, was convicted by a federal jury on seven counts ranging from lying to Congress to obstruction of justice to witness tampering. His sentencing will take place on February 6, 2020, and Stone could face up to 50 years in prison.

Prosecutors argued that Stone pressured radio talk show host Randy Credico not to testify before the House Intelligence Committee, which was investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election. Stone claimed that Credico was his source for WikiLeaks information, but the talk show host later admitted he lied about his contacts. Credico boasted that he supplied investigative reporter Michael Isikoff “disinformation” and “phony emails” for a book about the investigation into Russian tampering with the 2016 election.

Credico is a liberal talk show host, who admitted after the verdict that he feels “horrible” that Stone may go to prison “because of me.” Prosecutors targeted Stone for supposed efforts to gather information for the Trump campaign from WikiLeaks about the hacking of Democratic National Committee (DNC) computers. Stone’s defense team noted that he never established any connection with WikiLeaks, so he had no real information to provide to the campaign.

Stone was not allowed by Judge Amy Berman Jackson, appointed to the bench by former President Barack Obama, to demand proof that Russia did indeed hack the DNC computers. Federal prosecutors working with Special Counsel Robert Mueller contended that Russia accessed DNC computers and released damaging emails to thwart the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton. Stone asked to see the report from Crowdstrike, a cybersecurity firm, that inspected the DNC computers and determined the Russians infiltrated their network. Attorneys for Stone contended that if the Russians did not hack the DNC computers, the case against Stone would have had to be dismissed.

Stone was convicted by a jury that convened in Washington D.C., a city where 96% of the voters supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. Stone joins other Trump associates such as former Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort, former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, and former foreign policy aide George Papadopoulos who have faced prosecution. All of them were targeted by prosecutors working for former Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

While Stone, Manafort and other Trump operatives have been convicted, those working with the “Deep State” never seem to face any legal trouble. Former FBI Director James Comey and Associate Director Andrew McCabe clearly lied on multiple occasions, yet neither of them has faced any charges. Even though the Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz has made a criminal referral for McCabe, federal prosecutors at the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington D.C., have not acted.

Hillary Clinton transmitted top secret information on her “home brew” computer, yet she was not charged because former FBI Director James Comey maintained there was supposedly no “intent” to commit a crime. It remains to be seen how she could direct her phones to be destroyed by hammers and her computers to be wiped clean with “bleach bit” and there be no criminal intent.

All of Politics a stage and the Politicians merely Players, and guess who’s getting Played?
Both sides Right/left emotionally setting up their people to anger.
Prominent people on both sides switching over to the other side causing confusion.
Media also for and against both sides.
Left/Right Media persons also causing confusion by making good comments to opposition and bad comments to their sides.
