Romney claims corruption in commutation of Roger Stone’s sentence
SALT LAKE CITY — Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, tweeted his concerns about President Donald Trump’s commutation of the sentence of Roger Stone.
Stone was a former campaign adviser to the president and was due on Tuesday to begin a sentence of three years and four months in prison.
In Romney’s tweet, he referred to the move as “Unprecedented, historic corruption.”
Unprecedented, historic corruption: an American president commutes the sentence of a person convicted by a jury of lying to shield that very president.

President Trump says, “Roger Stone was targeted by an illegal Witch Hunt that never should have taken place.”
