Longtime Trump ally Roger Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison and pay a $20,000 fine for lying to Congress, tampering with a witness, and obstructing House Democrats’ investigation into Russian collusion. He will be on probation upon his release. Judge Amy Berman Jackson, appointed by Obama, said ‘Stone’s belligerence and lies are a threat to the very foundation of our democracy.’ The execution of the sentence will be delayed until the judge decides whether Stone’s request for a new trial after the jury forewoman in his case, a former Democratic political candidate, outed herself as a leftist who had posted inflammatory anti-Trump content on social media. Stone is still under a gag order.

Longtime Trump ally Roger Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison and pay a $20,000 fine on Thursday for witness tampering and lying to Congress. He will be on probation upon his release.

Despite a controversial move by AG William Barr to overrule federal prosecutors’ recommended sentence, Judge Amy Berman Jackson added enhanced ‘points’ to his sentencing guideline as the hearing went on, saying ‘Stone’s belligerence and lies are a threat to the very foundation of our democracy.’

“The truth still exists,” she added. “The truth still matters.”

The execution of the sentence will be delayed until Jackson decides whether Stone’s request for a new trial after the jury forewoman in his case – a former Democratic political candidate, outed herself as a far-left Democrat who had posted inflammatory anti-Trump content on social media.

Stone was convicted in November on seven counts, including lying to Congress, tampering with a witness, and obstructing House Democrats’ investigation into Russian collusion, according to AP.

Thursday’s jail sentence comes on the heels of a mini-revolt inside the Justice Department after Attorney General William Barr overrode four career prosecutors, who recommended an absurd 7-9 years in prison for process crimes – a decision that President Trump called a “miscarriage of justice.”

“I haven’t given it any thought … but I think he’s been treated very unfairly,” said Trump this week, who called the original sentence a “miscarriage of justice.”

July 10, 2020 Jon Rappoport 1

No one has done a proper study for a novel, never-seen-before virus, and it will never be attempted because it would destroy the theory that one virus is causing a pandemic. A few people at the top know the truth, but the cult operates on blind faith.

July 8, 2020 Dr. Scott Jensen 3

The State’s Medical Practice Board accused Dr. Jensen of ‘providing reckless advice’ on a news program by comparing COVID-19 to the ordinary flu. [Dr. Jensen is correct, of course, and If this goes to court, there is a good chance he will prove his case. Our guess, therefore, is that it will never go to court.]
