Roger Stone Convicted on All Seven Counts – Sentencing in February, Faces 20 Years in Federal Prison…

Following a week-long trial a federal jury in Washington, D.C., has convicted Roger Stone, 67, on five felony counts of lying to investigators, one of obstructing a congressional probe and one of witness tampering. Sentencing will be February 6th, 2020.  [Article]

Judge Berman Jackson has kept the gag order on Roger Stone barring him from discussing his conviction until he is remanded to federal prison next year.

    • Roger Stone’s entire legal counsels’ strategy has been just one thing– shoot for the pardon.

      Stone will not waste the time, energy, effort or resources to attempt to appeal this travesty of justice– he won’t get any better result. Stone wasn’t convicted of a legitimate “crime” at all; all seven charges came from process crimes. There’s virtually nil chance that these convictions could ever win an appeal; worse, Stone could be sentenced to as much as 50 years in prison, the equivalent of a death sentence if he were to have to serve it.

      Stone needs a pardon; Manafort deserves the same; Flynn would require an utter miracle to make him whole, again.

        The entire Justice System has been perverted- look at the Gestapo hearings we are witnessing in Congress.

        Yet the evil criminals walk around with impunity, free to continue their evil work.

        Hey, that’s the link I lost! Thanks! I investigated it by buying two of the books upon which that article was based and found them to be FOOTNOTE REFERENCE FREE “he said that he said” GARBAGE that smelled like a compilation from other “he said he said” conspiracy books.

        Even when some specific thing like a British paper printing some investigation result was mentioned, not exact dates were given, it was not referenced in a footnote, and I could find nothing about it on-line. So, for instance, claimed phone calls by Barr to Iran-Contra perps or any direct involvement of his with that operation are pure, unsubstantiated BS. I threw the two books I bought (cheap, used ones) OUT. Garbage.

        However, there ‘s enough in that article to use as leads to investigate and I found enough properly DOCUMENTED stuff which I’ve posted here previously to lead me to strongly suspect he’s a “company man” uber alles.

        Big Lie narrative management does not permit the publicly shamed to be heard.

        President Trump claims to have “caught them all,” but it remains to be seen whether the “judicial branch of the Deep State” has been “caught.” It’s coming on two years now since Strzok-pal Judge Contreras was quietly “recused” from the Flynn case; meantime, we still don’t know the grounds for recusal, nor have we heard of any other adverse consequences to him. FISA abuses were rampant, yet those Judges who were lied to haven’t taken any public actions imposing any consequences for rogue DOJ and FBI personnel lying and gravely abusing the court’s power.

        I’m reminded of the observation that Soviet propaganda was not intended to inform or persuade, but to humiliate, since it is deeply humiliating to have to listen publicly to known lies without power to challenge them. You don’t have to be right if you can publicly claim you’re right and no one dare challenge you. “Soul-crushing.”

          Even if the jury had reached a verdict late yesterday afternoon, I just don’t see how it would have been possible for AG Barr to have known about it, let alone for AG Barr to have been able to talk with PDJT about it. Just my opinion, though.

    Judge angry with DOJ delays in McCabe prosecution decision: ‘This is not a hard case!’

    The Justice Department’s continued delays in making a decision about whether or not it will charge fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe with any crimes related to allegations that he misled investigators frustrated the federal judge overseeing a freedom of information lawsuit.

    “I don’t care what y’all do with McCabe,” Judge Reggie Walton said from the bench in the District Court for the District of Columbia on Thursday afternoon. “But this is not a hard case!”

    “Deciding whether you’re going to charge someone with false statements is not a hard case … not factually, not legally, but maybe politically,” he said.

        Unless you have a plan that you have yet to share with us, this battle has been already lost.

        The deep state is currently in charge. Period! And the few fighting against it are being run over by Pravda

        If that’s your strategy then what’s your plan B?
        Because waiting and waiting and waiting is not a winning strategy for ANY thing in this life.

        Our side is too docile. We tell ourselves to believe in the justice system.
        The same one throwing our people in jail for political reasons. Ahhhh that is dumb!

        My advice; do NOT believe in our justice system.

        Justice is not coming. Justice is dead.

        Go ahead and dream, people in concentration camps can dream all day as well. But to get results dreams alone accomplishes nothing.

        Honestly until we go full yellow vests on these people and chase them out of power nothing will change.

        They are not going to investigate themselves and expose their own crimes.

        Ever!

        Barr may honest, maybe not. Think about that. Our plan relies on 50-50 of what one person will do.

        One person! Then after Barr we have the same judges and G. Jury to rely on.

        Please… give me facts as to why I should believe they will finally be honest and just like magic, our judges and lawyers will simply become honest overnight

              I’m just trying to see what actual, constructive steps can be done and didn’t understand your approach, so asked a question.

              I’m not cutting off television, internet or connections – it’s not practical for me, budget-wise or even for access, living in an area where access is extremely limited, how would limiting myself to nothing help?

              References to yellow vest movement – that hasn’t worked well for the people, being beat up by the police of that nation, still having the taxes they originally protested go into effect. Is there another option? Am open to hearing them.

              We are in new territory as a nation, so new ideas need to come out. I find the internet meme makers, humor, is having a huge impact, which is one of the reasons the owners of those platforms are constantly changing their terms of service so get ahead of these young minds that are a step ahead.

              I also think that these young people, probably many home-schooled so not indoctrinated, may be a core group to watch and see how they approach the issues, young minds might have a fresh approach also, since marching just takes one’s mind back to the destructive 60’s and their marches on DC and elsewhere, not accomplishing their goals they changed tactics,

              went underground, into the education system, indoctrinate young minds – that is where a counter approach would help, this is obviously going to be a long-term reply to what the left has so concisely done, and do it in a way that succeeds.

                Just because the DoJ ignores or declines to prosecute doesn’t make the situation normal & business as usual.

          Bubby, you really don’t understand the facts of the case. A lot of other people here don’t know them either, but they still spit out pontifications. Out of hundreds and hundreds of questions, on 6 or 7 he did not recall some things that were later dug up in emails/texts. The underlying premise is that he had something to do with the Russians hacking DNC server/Podesta emails, when in fact there’s no evidence of such hacking and plenty evidence Seth Rich gave WikiLeaks a thumb drive. The whole underlying premise is false, and I’ve followed Stone discussing these issues since 2016. This was a screw job from the get go.

    • Actually, there were seven process crimes that Stone was convicted of. If the man had committed murder, he’d be looking at less prison time than what he’s facing at the moment.

      The legal system is being used as a punitive cure. Individuals aren’t committing crimes; individuals are being selected for persecution.

      I appreciate your blitheness and lack of concern. “Who cares seriously?” I understand. I get where you’re coming from. As long as you and I are not financially ruined from legal fees and we’re not hearing the clank of steel bars locking us into a cell, it’s not a concern for us. I’ll go out to dinner with some friends, in a few more hours; then when the evening finishes, I’ll return home to my house, my dog and my comfortable bed. I’ll choose if I want to look online, before I go to sleep. I’m free, at the moment to do these things…

      What I do find distressing is people are being targeted because of their affiliation with the President of the United States. What I find alarming is the boldness with which these imprisonments are being carried out. The prosecutors are doing this in the open and making no attempt hide any of this from us. The Deep State isn’t operating from a position of fear.

      There are many things troubling about the events of the world, at this time– false impeachment proceedings and criminally using the justice system against the citizenry are a couple– we’ve crossed the Rubicon with the events of the past few months. I don’t have any answers. I’m still processing how quickly things have deteriorated. About the only thing that’s happened today, is that I’m no longer under the illusion that I’m free or that I have any *rights*; money will not solve these problems and I can’t call the Governor of Arizona for help.

      At the moment, I’m grateful that I’m not the person feeling the wrath of maltreatment. I simply haven’t been placed in somebody’s cross hairs. Yet. That I know of. But today the scales fell from my eyes.

        Donald well written I agree. When I said who cares it was meant in the overall scheme of the impeachment of the President of the United States over literally policy differences! It was a flip statement I admit that but I didn’t want it to become a distraction to focusing on impeachment that’s the real threat facing the Republic. I shouldn’t have posted it but there is no delete button unfortunately. Stone’s guilty verdict will be played up by the msm as another indictment of one of President Trump’s “advisors” and that’s a real concern. Stone’s punishment is excessive to me. The impeachment of the President and his removal if found guilty by the Senate will have an untold effect on this country. I hate process crimes since they are used by the deep state against Republicans, conservatives and associates of President Trump. Roger Stone’s arrest is another matter that’s very disturbing in addition to what could be a rather harsh sentence. But if President Trump is removed from office the next step by the deep state will be to convict him and jail him of some made up or process crime. That is their real goal. If re-elected President Trump can always pardon Stone since all his charges were Federal. I hope he would do that. But as long as there are obama appointed Federal Judges fair trials for Republicans, conservatives and associates of President Trump or his family will be unlikely. I have a some idea what Stone is facing. I was a Christian mentor in the Texas State prison system for almost a dozen years, ate the food, spent time on the administrative segregation line (fancy name for solitary confinement) and mentored prisoners with lengthy sentences. I didn’t mean to make light of his conviction. For that I apologize.

        • No need to apologize at all.
          You’ve got it; you understand what I was saying, probably better than most people.
          I’m havin’ a hard time accepting that when the State decides it wants to screw me, I no longer have a choice in the matter, and regardless of what I do, the screwing will take place as often, and as long, as the State cares to do it. Nobody is safe, immune or exempt.

          Writing helps me process the legal shift that occurred in the United States, today. I’m still incredulous that after all these months, when the Mueller report is no longer useful or relevant, the white-hot hate with which Stone was pursued, could still be present. It’s tough to reconcile.

          As President Trump so often says, “They’re coming for you; I’m just in their way.” If they can do the things that they’ve been doing to PDJT, not a single one of us mortals are safe.

          Good on ya for mentoring in the Texas penile facilities. I love Texas, but it’s not the place you want to commit a crime, or be incarcerated in. Have a good evening.

        Like

        • I’m not Ristvan, but a quick answer is only the defendant can petition for a change of venue. This doesn’t mean the request will be considered or that it will be granted; however, only the defendant can ask for a change of venue. As a general rule, extenuating circumstances are involved to such a degree that a fair and impartial trial wouldn’t have a likelihood of occurring in the locale where the crime took place, so it must be moved to ensure impartiality.

          The prosecution is almost never allowed a change of venue. Barr and Durham are the prosecutors in the cases we hope to see tried. All advantages must accrue to the benefit of the defendant. Comey, McCabe, Hillary and Brennan are who we hope to someday see as defendants. This means that it would only be Comey, McCabe, Hillary and Brennan who would be given the potential opportunity to change the location of their trials.

          The ‘bad guys’ are the only people who get to request a change of venue. Perhaps Ristvan will have an answer that’s more satisfying and encouraging than this one; I’m sure this response was not what anyone hoped to hear.

          These principals cover most situations; there are exceptions to everything; I’m not an attorney; this response, pertaining to the practice of law, is what a band-aid is, with regards to neurosurgery. Don’t rely on it, at all.

      We have to wake up. We are living in the world the Left has constructed and we are acting shocked by these actions. While we were asleep they took control of the media, Wall Street, Silicon Valley, Hollywood, and the Washington bureaucracy. They are seeping into the military, FOXNEWS (already), and into the Church (both Catholic (Francis) and Protestant). They took control of the schools while we slept and are influencing our children against us! Yet, we are shocked by these events?

      Listen, we better do more than just pray. We better take back control of our children, our schools, what we watch (why are you all still subscribed to Netflix?), what we read (are you still subscribed to any of these left wing rags?) and our churches. We need to support our conservative stars, conservative media (radio and print) that is not NEVERTRUMP! and those leaning conservative escaping these corrupt institutions such as Kanye West and many other talented folks.

      We need to get out and VOTE! We didn’t vote in 2018 and now we are dealing with the consequences. Too many conservatives voted for independents or even Dems in 2018! Enough of the purity tests! We are not that great in numbers to play those type of games any more! Vote straight ticket for those who will support Trump!

      No, conservatives/nationalists/independents iti is past time to wake the hell up. Stop being surprised. We allowed the LEFT to take control and build this system we are in. We better not let them get the White House in 2020 or else this nation will be LOST! Trump is all that stands in the way of a complete takeover of the nation’s institutions by the LEFT. That’s called totalitarianism folks. Wake up!

            Stone made the same mistake as Bill Clinton: Took embarrassing but not illegal actions and then not only lied about it, he encouraged others to lie as well. The “coverup” for the non-crime is the ONLY “crime” such as it is.

            Although I think what President Trump is angling at here isn’t leniency for Stone. He’s telling Barr “now prosecute all these other far worse crimes that were hitherto ‘declined for prosecution.'” Ask Paul Manafort – a “declined prosecution” isn’t the same thing as a dismissal with prejudice. The case can be reopened at any time. And you can be convicted.
