President Trump is rumored to have made the decision to commute Roger Stone’s jail sentence days before his longtime political associate is scheduled to report to prison to serve more than three years for charges stemming from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Fox News broke the story.

Conservatives have been pushing for this.

It has been quipped that the most dangerous spot in the nation’s capitol is anywhere between Roger Stone and a television camera.

Stone’s chicanery goes back to the Nixon administration, a fact Stone is quite proud of. It has given him a DC and media reputation as a stylish political buccaneer who seeks the limelight as a moth seeks flame. Though upon examination, beneath the veneer of bombast and glitz, there are very few actual political accomplishments.

Stone claimed he had “been praying” for a presidential commutation to save himself a stint in federal prison.

Given the inherent publicity in the trial and now the president’s intervention, Stone will be in his glory and will likely turn it into a book deal and a lecture tour. The man is incorrigible but nevertheless interesting.
