Update: Roger Stone’s sentence was commuted by President Trump.
President Trump will likely pardon long-time confidant Roger Stone near the end of the day Friday. While this is speculation, all indicators point to this being the case. The President has been expressing his dissatisfaction with the verdict for weeks, and today begins the final weekend before Stone is scheduled to report to prison next week.
Based on hints from the White House, they will be announcing the pardon ahead of the weekend. Friday’s are generally considered the best day to release controversial bombshells to allow the news to fade over the weekend before starting a new news cycle on Monday.
This will generally be perceived positively by Trump supporters who have been calling for Stone’s pardon since before he was convicted in November 2019 of making false statements, obstructing an official proceeding and witness tampering in a case related to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. The infamous CNN/FBI early morning raid on Stone’s house drew outrage from conservatives as an obvious PR stunt by the left.
President Trump has been hinting at a pardon recently.
When asked by Fox News host Sean Hannity whether he is considering a pardon or commutation for Stone, Trump responded, “I am always thinking.”
“You’ll be watching like everyone else in this case,” Trump told Hannity.
Stone on Monday asked an appeals court to delay his 40-month prison sentence amid concerns over the coronavirus pandemic in the Georgia facility where he is currently set to serve his term.
Trump also slammed Stone’s treatment by law enforcement in an interview with radio host Howie Carr Thursday.
“He was framed. He was treated horrible. He was treated so badly,” Trump said. The president has repeatedly defended Stone, previously calling him the “victim of a corrupt and illegal Witch Hunt.”
Carr cited reports that Stone is “praying” for a commutation of his convictions or a pardon from the president.
“Well if you say he’s praying, his prayer may be answered. Let’s find out what happened,” Trump responded.
Roger Stone should have a very good weekend. Instead of preparing to report to prison next week, he can move forward knowing President Trump took care of business.

One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
