Today, the long-time friend and Trump campaign consultant Roger Stone was sentenced to 40 months in a federal prison for multiple charges relating to his Congressional testimony and Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.
US District Judge Amy Berman Jackson issued Stone’s sentence after his lawyers had first requested that he receive no prison time.
After the sentence was handed down, Stone refrained from making a personal statement to the court.
Normally, one might refrain from criticizing a judge too harshly, but this was no ordinary closing remarks performance, as Judge Jackson seemed to go on forever, attempting to address all of her critics, and seemed compelled to want to justify the premise of the legal proceedings.
