WASHINGTON – US President Donald J. Trump has commuted the jail sentence of his long-time friend and advisor Roger Stone.

The decision by the President has taken to Twitter with a flurry of tweets protesting the move.

Roger Jason Stone is an American conservative political consultant, convicted felon, and lobbyist. In November 2019, subsequent to the Mueller Report and Special Counsel investigation, he was convicted on seven counts, including witness tampering and lying to investigators.
