Trump Ally Roger Stone Has Been Found Guilty Of Witness Tampering And Messing With The Election

On Friday, a federal jury has convicted Roger Stone, one of Donald Trump’s most stereotypically evil-looking cronies, after he was accused, the Washington Post reports. The indictment was brought against Stone through special counsel Robert S. Mueller, and the case brought to light some interesting facts about the president, especially his fascination with how WikiLeaks released Democratic emails after hacking into the system just before the 2016 election.

Stone was found guilty on all seven counts after the jury deliberated for about a day and a half. The witness tampering charge carries a statutory maximum penalty of 20 years, and lying to Congress can count for five years. But federal sentencing guidelines indicate a first offender would serve less. Stone has been released on bond, though he allegedly violated the orders of his parole during the trial by contacting Infowars star Alex Jones while under a gag order.

The charge of witness tampering against Stone carries a statutory maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, and the other counts up to five-year terms, although a first offender would face far less time under federal sentencing guidelines.

People are commenting that Stone’s conviction could influence Trump’s impeachment case since it shows that people in his sphere can suffer consequences for their actions and the number of people in his sphere getting convicted of crimes is growing every day:

It also feels like a win because of Stone’s consistent persecution of Hillary Clinton, who he wanted to see in jail because of her email leaks:

Of course, Trump has weighed in on his bestie gremlin getting thrown in jail:

Question mark? Is Trump next? I hope so?
