'Historic Corruption': 2 Republican Senators Denounce Trump's Commutation of Stone
By Andrew Desiderio
July 12, 2020
Sens. Mitt Romney and Pat Toomey condemned Donald Trump's decision to commute the prison sentence of his longtime confidant Roger Stone — the first elected Republicans to denounce the president's Friday night move.

"Unprecedented, historic corruption: an American president commutes the sentence of a person convicted by a jury of lying to shield that very president," Romney (R-Utah) wrote on Twitter Saturday.

GOP lawmakers have been mostly silent about the commutation, which came just after a federal appeals court panel rejected Stone's last-ditch bid to delay the start of his 40-month prison sentence set to begin next week. Stone was convicted on seven felony charges brought by special counsel Robert Mueller, including obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements.
