How could he be anything else? How could a "law and order" president commute Stone's sentence, even against Attorney General Barr's position on whether Stone was properly convicted? President Trump argues Stone's prosecution was unfair. To say so, in my view, is to say it's "unfair" to hold someone to account for lying to Congress or the FBI while it's also OK to have communicated with Russian military intelligence operatives feeding information to WikiLeaks or to have communicated just with WikiLeaks in a scheme to time the release of damaging information to the detriment of Democrats. Never mind the damage to Democrats but PLEASE pay attention to the fact the way that information was obtained then released without much regard, if any at all, for what was "fair" was reprehensible, and lying about it to Congress and the FBI *S* a CRIME! From that, Stone cannot run and hide or obfuscate.

Stone is a scofflaw or, like Trump, of the opinion the only law he must respect is law he makes for himself and strictly for HIS benefit alone. No one shouold be above the law. That includes Stone and Trump. If Stone manages to have his conviction thrown out, the TRUE concept of rule of law as well as TRUE law and order will be lost!

Congressmen lie to us every day. Why isn't *that* a crime?

Yet we *know* the Clinton campaign communicated with Russian military intelligence operatives,
through Steele, for damaging information to the detriment of Republicans. Never mind the damage to
the Trump campaign but PLEASE pay attention to the fact the way that information was obtained then
released without much regard, if any at all, for what was "fair" was reprehensible, and lying about
it to the FISA court by the FBI should be a crime.

If Stone should do time for his "crimes," the Clintons and their allies in the FBI should, too.

That ship sailed when Eric Holder declined to pursue charges against the New Black Panthers, if not
before.
