Our latest episode of As the Stone Turns finds the then-candidate Trump informal adviser and longtime friend Roger Stone heading to a D.C. courtroom where he is expected to learn his sentencing fate.

As the News Blender reported last week, President Impeached issued several early morning tweets and retweets lamenting the Department of Justice’s sentencing memo encouraging D.C. Judge Amy Berman Jackson to sentence Stone for no less than 7 years to 9 years in prison.

Following the early morning tweets by President Impeached, the DOJ announced they would be offering a new sentencing memo, that move led four prosecutors to inform Judge Jackson of their intent to withdraw from the Stone case.

President Impeached was not content in bashing his Department of Justice, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russian Election Interference Investigation, and Judge Jackson herself. Last Thursday, the now Impeached President took to Twitter to bash the Stone juror foreperson.

Following his attack on a private citizen who did her civic duty, Stone petitioned the court for a new trial, citing juror bias as a reason. Judge Jackson called a special conference in which she stated that Stone would be sentenced on Thursday morning as planned prior to the President Impeached sticking his tweets where they don’t belong.

President Impeached weighed-in on the Stone case once more late Wednesday following his Phoenix, Arizona rally.

The above tweet is currently his pinned tweet. A pinned tweet is the first tweet a person will see when visiting a Twitter feed.

Stone was convicted in fall of 2019, for lying to Congress, Obstructing a Congressional Investigation and for tampering with witnesses. The DOJ did not offer their opinion on what Stone should receive as prison time in the new sentencing memo.

For What It’s Worth:

As a reminder there are no video feeds for the hearing, but several Twitter users including Brandi Buchman with Courthouse News will provide updates from inside the courtroom.

This post will be updated after court concludes the Sentencing of Stone.
