President Donald Trump ally Roger Stone was convicted on multiple federal counts today, and many commentators and pundits expressed shock or amazement.
Many wondered how Stone’s indictment would impact Trump, as many of his actions were related to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference.
Others pointed out that this was yet another close Trump ally, like Paul Manafort, who has been convicted of multiple felonies following Trump’s 2016 win.
Stone guilty on all counts. As someone who covered Stone pretty extensively the last two years it’s jus wild to see his history of false statements catch up to him in such a big way.

Roger Stone guilty on all counts…
How the hell are the issues in that trial, directly related to Trump/Russia “collusion,” not now going to be central to the #ImpeachingHearings ?!!
A second Trump campaign head is now heading to prison, possibly to die there. So much winning!

Reminder that Roger Stone was Trump’s oldest political adviser, going back decades.

Andy McCarthy on FOX saying that it was a slam-dunk case against Stone & the fact that he didn’t testified showed that he was aware of the strength of the evidence & didn’t want to risk increasing his sentence.

I told you one of us was going to make it through this process, and wasn’t going to be you.

Stone is someone who has gone all in on trying to align himself with Trump in apparent hopes of seeking a pardon. He’s now been found guilty on all seven counts. And we’ll find out whether that gamble pays off. I imagine Giuliani will be watching closely.
