If you have the time, you should read the first sentencing memo (PDF) prosecutors submitted, where they outline just how deliberate, obnoxious, and determined Roger Stone was to try and set up Credico as his insurance policy against being accountable for any interaction with Wikileaks.

That's why the Roger Stone case ought to horrify anyone who has followed it. Left or right, Republican or Democrat, it doesn't matter.

Nine years in jail for lying -- that's what prosecutors have demanded that Roger Stone receive. How disproportionate is that sentence? Let's put it this way: James Clapper and John Brennan are both confirmed perjurers. They did it in public. They will never be prosecuted. At this moment, they're getting rich on television.

Meanwhile, for the crime of sending explicit sexual photos to a child, a serious felony, former Congressman Anthony Weiner got just 21 months, and he served less. Weiner was an admitted sex offender, but he was also a close personal friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton's. And in the end, that's what mattered most. See how this works?

Trump, tweeting a Tucker Carlson segment, hints of possible pardon for Roger Stone

  Trump, tweeting a Tucker Carlson segment, hints of possible pardon for Roger Stone “President Trump could end this travesty in an instant with a pardon and there are indications tonight that he will do that,” Fox News host Tucker Carlson said on his show.Tucker Carlson, along with other Fox News personalities, serves as an informal adviser to the president. While it was unclear whether Carlson knows something about Trump’s plans to which the public is not privy, or was again lobbying the president, the fact that Trump retweeted the clip suggests at least that he approves of the idea, which he claimed Tuesday he had not thought about.

You ’d think our ruling class would be interested in knowing the answer. Despite this failing of conservatism, Carlson contended that only the Republican Party can lead the country For example, in “The Right Should Reject Tucker Carlson ’s Victimhood Populism,” David French, a senior writer at

“ You know, we’ re not going to take our options off the table,” Swalwell, a member of the House Trump denies interfering in roger stone case , stays mum on possible Schumer also took to the Senate floor and torched Senate Republicans who acquitted Trump on two articles of

Prosecutors want Roger Stone to serve nine years not because he hurt someone or hurt this country. He didn't. But because they hate him. As status liberals, they hate his politics. But above all, they hate his attitude.

Stone made fun of the ruling class. That's not allowed, and they never forgot it. They're trying to kill him for it. How unscrupulous are they in pursuit of that goal?

Well, prosecutors lied about what Stone did. They linked him to foreign election interference when he had no tie to that, and it had nothing to do with the charges against him -- not one thing. Then apparently, they deceived their superiors at the Department of Justice about it. Attorney General Bill Barr suggested in an interview Thursday.

William Barr, U.S. attorney general: I was under the impression that what was going to happen was very much, as I had suggested, which was deferring to the judge and then pointing at various factors and circumstances.

Inflatable Trump Rat, Supporters Greet Roger Stone Sentencing

  Inflatable Trump Rat, Supporters Greet Roger Stone Sentencing An inflatable rat with a Donald Trump hairdo, supporters eager for a presidential pardon and a long line of news reporters and spectators have gathered at a Washington court this morning for the sentencing of Roger Stone. © Bloomberg An inflatable rat with a Trump-like hairdo and clothes sits outside a federal courthouse in Washington on Thursday. Judge Amy Berman Jackson is scheduled to hand down one of the most closely watched sentences of the year, after the president tweeted last week that an initial recommendation by federal prosecutors of 7 to 9 years in prison for Stone was “unfair.

“But you ’ll end up seeing Republicans saying he has the authority to do it, even if they If Senate Republicans who voted to acquit Trump thought he might be chastened or show contrition after his “The White House counsel and Republican senators don’t want to speak up for Roger ,” said Sam

Registered Democrat Tucker Carlson : Democrats are ‘actively against America’. To Tucker Carlson , the calculations involving this debate aren’t terribly complicated: It’s a matter of prioritizing those who are already here And if they’ re such a bad influence, why is Carlson affiliated with them?

On Monday night, when I first saw the news reports, I said, "Gee, the news is spinning this. This is not what we were going to do."

Pierre Thomas, ABC News senior justice correspondent: So you were surprised.

Barr: I was very surprised. And once I confirmed that that's actually what we filed, I said that night to my staff that we had to get ready because we had to do something in the morning to amend that and clarify what our position was.

Now, thanks to details we've just learned -- and you have to ask yourself why are we just learning them. But we know them, and they lead us to the conclusion that the charges and recommended sentence against Roger Stone weren't the only parts of the process that were distorted by tough politics grotesquely. The trial itself was, too.

During the jury selection process at Roger Stone's trial, lawyers asked the eventual foreman of the jury, if there was anything that would affect her ability to judge Stone fairly. No, she claimed. She hadn't paid much attention to the Russia probe.

That turned out to be a lie and a stupid one at that. That juror's Twitter account is public, and it turns out that she's an anti-Trump zealot who closely followed the Mueller investigation.

Tucker Carlson : Trump must 'pardon Roger Stone or commute his sentence'. Tucker Carlson slammed federal prosecutors' initial sentencing recommendation for former Trump associate Roger They’ re at it again. The Democrats are attempting to force another round of impeachment proceedings.

And that’s why you have this new race-based system where we all have been conditioned as Republicans or as Libertarians or as white people to be, ‘Oh According to D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics spokeswoman Denise Tolliver, Carlson is a registered Democrat in the District of Columbia.

In one tweet, for example, she called Donald Trump "The Klan President." When Stone was taken into custody in a dawn raid by dozens of federal agents armed with automatic weapons and an airboat, she mocked the idea that the arrest was excessive. "Oh, it seems fine to me."

This is not a neutral person. This is not someone capable of judging this trial fairly. This is a partisan who lied about who she was. Roger Stone is facing life in prison because an Obama-appointed judge, Amy Berman Jackson, allowed this woman to run the jury.

And that's all fine with CNN, which has colluded with the Justice Department from day one on this, and which is rooting for Stone to die behind bars. But it should be deeply upsetting to anyone who cares about fairness -- and that should be all of us.

But it's not. For example, Republicans in the Senate. You'd think they'd be outraged by all of this. And yet, it's perfectly obvious they could care less.

Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C.: I'd rather not there be political interference in such cases, but I'd rather look at the details before I answer hypotheticals.

Manu Raju, CNN senior congressional correspondent: Senator, the president is not ruling out a pardon for Roger Stone. Do you think that would be a good idea if he went that route?

Scott: I think he deserves what he's got when they made the decision. I assume that he thought -- contemplating it seriously at this point.

John Kennedy suggested President Trump should stop tweeting about the Department of Justice and, therefore, placing Attorney General William Barr in difficult situations. © Provided by Washington ExaminerThe Louisiana Republican appeared on CBS's Face the Nation on Sunday to defend the president against allegations that he is attempting to subvert justice in the case of GOP operative Roger Stone. Kennedy said that the president’s tweets earlier this week on the DOJ’s case against Stone placed Barr in an "awkward spot" but were not illegal.

Tucker Carlson called for the pardon of Roger Stone , comparing the harsh sentencing recommendations for the crimes committed by Stone to “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.

Raju: He might be and I mean, he didn't rule it out. And he's already been convicted on seven counts.

Scott: But he didn't rule it in, so --

Reporter: The president also has not ruled out a pardon for Roger Stone. Would that be a good idea?

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas: Well, he hadn't said he would do it. So we will wait until that happens if that happens.

"Yes, whatever, not really paying attention. Naming new post offices."

If you're a Republican voter -- and you may be -- these are the people you vote for to protect you and your country. You think they will?

Democrats, meanwhile, have whipped themselves into a frenzy of bloodlust. "Roger Stone must rot behind bars. If the president tries to save Roger Stone, we will impeach him again."

Jake Tapper, CNN host: Might you impeach him over this? Over Roger Stone and the sentencing?

Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif.: You know, we're not going to take our options off the table. We don't wake up in the morning wanting to impeach him. You know, we want to work with him on prescription drugs, background checks and infrastructure.

But we're not going to let him just, you know, torch this democracy because he thinks that he's been let off once, and we're not going to do something about it.

Now, Eric Swalwell may be the slowest of the 435 House Members. He's certainly in the running. But even he can remember talking points.

So this is among their plans, another impeachment. Why would they do that? Why do Democrats care so much about punishing Roger Stone?

Here's why: Because if Roger Stone spends even a day in jail, they will point to him for the next 40 years as evidence that Russia collusion was real. That's what they really want. Let's hope the president doesn't let them have it.
