Double Standard of Justice:


Former Donald Trump campaign strategist, Roger Stone, 67, has been found guilty of all seven felony charges including lying to Congress, witness tampering, and obstruction, with regard to his contact with WikiLeaks. Prosecutors used Stone's own text messages and emails, some of which appeared to contradict his congressional testimony, to lay out their case that he lied to Congress and threatened a witness. Stone did not testify, and his lawyers called no witnesses in his defense.

Stone was not allowed by Judge Amy Berman Jackson, an Obama appointee, to demand proof that Russia did indeed hack the DNC computers. Attorneys for Stone contended that if the Russians did not hack the DNC computers, the case against Stone would have had to be dismissed. Stone is under a court-imposed gag order forbidding him from speaking publicly about the verdict or the case until sentencing in February 6, 2020. He faces up to 50 years in prison.
