TRUMP ZEROES OUT STONE’S SENTENCE


Smarting from a Supreme Court decision unsealing his financial records and a skidding campaign that cancelled tonight’s New Hampshire rally, President Donald Trump gave himself a victory: Early today he fully commuted the 40-month prison term of confidant Roger Stone, convicted of obstructing and lying to Congress and witness tampering. The move was extraordinary because those offenses are linked to a probe of potential presidential misconduct. Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, called it “offensive to the rule of law,” while presidential press secretary Kayleigh McEnany called Stone a “victim of the Russia Hoax.”SOURCES:  NYT  /   LA TIMES  /  AP
