False statements, witness tampering, and other charges could put Stone, 67, behind bars for 50 years. Even a modest sentence could result in a practical life sentence for Stone. According to far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, Stone reached out to him to pitch a pardon from President Donald Trump.
In response to the conviction, Trump cried foul that Stone was prosecuted while others were not. Trump did not question that Stone lied but asked “Crooked Hillary, Comey, Strzok, Page, McCabe, Brennan, Clapper, Shifty Schiff, Ohr & Nellie, Steele & all of the others, including even Mueller himself? Didn’t they lie?”
