Stone is only the latest Trump associate to be held to a higher standard than a litany of Obama officials who have gotten away with similar process crimes. Stone was convicted on charges of bribery, witness tampering, making false statements to Congress, and several other charges stemming from Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

It is important to note that these charges are all process crimes that occurred DURING the investigation. In other words, Stone committed no crimes before the investigation began, and what he was convicted on had no connection at all to Trump, Russia, or the 2016 election.

Again, there are no “Russia” connections in Stone’s trial at all.

President Trump slammed the conviction and asked why all the others who lied repeatedly to the FBI and to Congress weren’t convicted of anything.

“So they now convict Roger Stone of lying and want to jail him for many years to come,” Trump tweeted minutes after Stone’s conviction was reported. “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?”

Stone is awaiting sentencing on the charges right now, but in the meantime, a video from is going viral in hopes of spurring the president to issue a pardon.

Stone’s motion for acquittal was rebuked by the judge in the case.

After completing Stone’s legal defense, his attorneys claimed he was legally entitled to an acquittal, arguing the government failed to prove that either Jerome Corsi or Randy Credico acted as intermediaries between Stone and Julian Assange or WikiLeaks.

U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson on Monday released the eight-page decision denying the motion, reasoning that the government had provided sufficient evidence for a “rational trier of fact” to find Stone guilty on all seven counts with which he had been charged and found guilty. Jackson promised to release a written copy of the decision which she had already read from the bench.
