Trump formally pardoned Stone on Wednesday evening along with Paul Manafort, the former chairman of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, and several others. Stone and Manafort refused to cooperate with prosecutors working on Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. The president previously commuted Stone’s 40-month prison sentence in July after he had been convicted on seven counts of witness tampering, lying to Congress, and obstructing the inquiry by the House of Representatives into possible Trump campaign coordination with Russia.
“The terms of my pardon allow me to sue the Department of Justice, Robert Mueller, [former FBI director] James Comey, [former CIA director] John Brennan, [former Deputy Attorney General] Rod Rosenstein , [former federal prosecutors] Josnathan [Jonathan] Kravis , Aaron ‘ Fat Ass’ Zelinsky [former Deputy Assistant Attorney General] Jeanie Rhee and [former federal prosecutor] Michael Morando . [sic],” Stone posted to his Parler account on Thursday morning.
