The Department of Justice (DOJ) said in a court filing Thursday that it supports GOP operative and Trump ally Roger Stone starting his jail sentence next week.

DOJ, which has caught flak from critics who accuse it of being soft on Stone, wrote that the July 14 start of his prison sentence set by a judge is "a reasonable exercise of that court's discretion based on the totality of the factual and legal circumstances."

Stone has asked an appeals court to delay his 40-month prison sentence, citing his age and concerns regarding several coronavirus cases reported in the Georgia facility where he is set to serve his sentence.
