    A longtime associate of Roger Stone is urging a federal judge not to send him to prison following the right-wing political operative's conviction on seven counts of lying to Congress and witness tampering. Randy Credico, an activist and radio host who's known Stone for years, was on the receiving end of the witness tampering. Evidence introduced by prosecutors during trial showed Stone repeatedly — and often with vulgar language — threatened Credico to not cooperate with a congressional investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. But in a letter to D.C. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson, an Obama...

    Speaking to reporters at Mar-a-Lago Tuesday, President Trump was asked if he plans to pardon General Michael Flynn and Roger Stone.   “I haven’t thought about it," President Trump said. "He got hit very hard as did General Flynn and a lot of other people. And now they are finding out it was all a hoax.” Will President Trump pardon Roger Stone and General Flynn? pic.twitter.com/rgR3IHgmZO— ALX ????

    The left-wing juror gave large amounts to Beto O’Rourke and Jill Stein, spent years working under liberal donor Bill Gates at Microsoft. Seth Cousins, juror number 3 in Roger Stone’s recent trial, just couldn’t resist the limelight. In an op-ed published by the Washington Post, Cousins claimed that the jury, who handed down a guilty verdict on all counts against Stone, acted independently and with no bias towards Mr. Stone for his previous political activities or the fact that he is one of President Trump’s most ardent defenders and longtime friends. Reading Mr. Cousins op-ed is like reading a summation...

    George Papadopoulos A junior member of the Trump foreign policy advisory team in 2016, George Papadopoulos was approached by FBI agents in Chicago, where he lived with his mother after the election while waiting for what he hoped would be an offer to join the new administration. The agents said they just wanted to talk to him about contacts he’d made with people in London during the campaign. He spoke to them without a lawyer or the benefit of notes, emails or a calendar to refresh his recollection — a decision he would later regret. One of the interviews was...

    Roger Stone was recently convicted in federal court on seven felony charges, stemming from the since-closed Russian collusion investigation. Stone's main crime was lying to Congress about who he had, or had not, spoken to about Russia. By the time Stone's trial began in Washington, nobody was talking about WikiLeaks anymore. Nobody cared. Yet prosecutors continued as if it were 2017. For lying about something now irrelevant, they argued that Roger Stone should spend up to 50 years in prison, the rest of his life. At the very moment prosecutors were making that case -- that Stone's misstatements ought to...

    Full title: Corrupt Judge Amy Berman Jackson Refused Roger Stone from Raising the Argument that Would Have Set Him Free. Imagine getting arrested for driving while under the influence and the police do not have to prove you own a car or know how to drive. Then the next thing you know, you are headed for prison without a single shred of proof that you committed a crime. That is what happened to Roger Stone this week. He was found guilty of conspiring with Russia on hacked emails when there is not a shred of proof that Russia took the...

    On Friday, Roger Stone, a political operative who had worked with Presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump, was convicted by a federal jury on seven counts ranging from lying to Congress to obstruction of justice to witness tampering. His sentencing will take place on February 6, 2020 and Stone could face up to 50 years in prison. Prosecutors argued that Stone pressured radio talk show host Randy Credico not to testify before the House Intelligence Committee, which was investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election. Stone claimed that Credico was his source for WikiLeaks information, but the talk...

    Republican operative Roger Stone was found guilty on Friday of all seven counts against him, including witness tampering and making false statements. The colorful trial lasted for nearly two weeks and featured references to “The Godfather Part II,” threats of dognapping, complaints of food poisoning and a gag order. Prosecutors portrayed Stone, 67, as a serial liar who tried to bully witnesses into not cooperating with authorities. They charged Stone with making false statements, obstruction and witness tampering. The case was one of the offshoots of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation and the last one referred to federal...

    The jury in Roger Stone's criminal trial ended its first day of deliberations Thursday without reaching a verdict on the longtime Trump associate's charges of obstruction, lying to Congress and witness tampering. One of Stone's attorneys told reporters outside the courtroom at around 5 p.m. that the proceedings would resume Friday morning. The jury had begun deliberating at around 10:30 a.m. They sent two notes to the judge in the afternoon asking about one of the counts of making false statements. The charges, brought by the former special counsel Robert Mueller in January, allege that Stone lied to the House...

    President Trump's former deputy campaign manager told a jury on Tuesday that Roger Stone was giving the campaign updates on WikiLeaks' plans to release damaging emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman. Rick Gates, who is facing up to ten years in prison under a plea agreement for various fraud charges, testified in Stone's criminal trial on Tuesday, saying that the longtime Trump associate was telling the campaign about WikiLeaks' plans as early as April 2016, months before the DNC had announced it was hacked. Stone is facing charges of lying to Congress about his...

    When the federal judge presiding over the trial against Roger Stone referred to the government’s star witness, Randy Credico, as “difficult” on Friday, none of the members of the jury or others in the Washington, D.C., court room overheard her pointed remarks. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson made the observation during a side bar discussion with lead government attorney Aaron Zelinsky and Stone lawyer Robert Bushchel, according to a transcript of the court proceedings obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation. Jackson made the remark after two days of testimony that saw Credico, a comedian and longtime frenemy of Stone’s,...

    Roger Stone's lawyer on Friday clashed with a key witness in the longtime Trump adviser's trial over charges of lying to Congress. During a heated cross-examination, Stone's lawyer questioned the credibility of radio host and political activist Randy Credico, with the judge at numerous times intervening. Stone is accused of lying to lawmakers about his claims of having an intermediary with WikiLeaks as the organization was preparing to release stolen emails from Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's campaign in 2016. He told the House Intelligence Committee in 2017 that Credico was his back channel to WikiLeaks. Credico has denied having...
